    What was your favorite scene from the original Star Wars trilogy? Although this is probably the most cliche, I have to go with Darth Vader revealing to Luke the ultimate truth. To me, it was the most pivotal moment in the trilogy. However, there were definitely some strong contenders. Which scene(s) were your favorites?

    Han meeting Greedo will always be my favorite, Just the way Han smoked Greedo like nobody's business tells us he encounter's these baddies every once in a while. It also makes him an instant badass!

    My hands down favorite scene(s) is at the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon (ROTJ): Luke jumps off the skiff then springs back on to it, R2 launches the light saber, then Luke commences to lay the smack down. This scene, with Luke slicin' em' up on the skiffs with that big green light saber, makes me cheer every time. This is when we know "Luke is officially a BAMF".

    I have several, hard to decide. But I guess I'm too girly if I say the Han-Leia kiss in the MF on ESB? Lol.

    Vader trying to convince Luke to join the Dark Side. "No. I am your father." that whole scene. Awesome.


    As a young boy: it was probablly that time Oola's boob popped out in Jedi.

    My turn I have would have to go with Luke revealing to Leia that she is his sister & her reaction, if anyone would like to see that scene again.

    the particular moment in the Emperor's throne room as the tensions has been building and Luke has been staring out the window at the space battle. He slowly turns toward Palpatine and you can see the gears in his mind turning. He slowly returns his gaze to the space battle and then snaps back around, igniting his lightsaber and clashing with Vader's. The tension leading up to this moment, the promise of an epic lightsaber duel, and John Williams perfectly placed little crescendo at that moment create the perfect storm of Star Wars excitement.

    My favorite scene has to be in ROTJ when Luke and Vader face off and Luke defeats him and throws the Lightsaber away and tells the Emperor "I am a jedi like my father before me!" that has always been my favorite scene. (luke)

    Can I choose all of ESB? :rolleyes:



    If I have to choose, absolutely Luke vs Vader in ESB.

    The lighting, cinematography, acting, dialogue, choreography... everything in it was just perfect.


    Yoda lifting the X-Wing is a close second.

    Thanks! Great scene. Sort of what it would be in Leia's mind:

    1) Nice! I have a brother.
    2) Crap! I kissed my brother.
    3) Whaaat? Vader is my father too? Maclunkey.

    True! And according with the new comics series (Vader Down) she encounters him once more and at one point is about to shoot him down.

    Yoda. To see a quirky Yoda when he meets Luke is funny. Then you watch the PT and hes this bad ass jedi master.

    I am not a comics person either but started reading all the new Marvel Star Wars - since they are part of the new canon - and they have been pretty good so far. Here is one screenshot from the most recent one. (Located between ANH and ESB).
