    Yep. This is mine.

    This is the only time I've ever cried watching Star Wars.

    The other top emotional moment for me--a different sort of emotional--is when Luke throws away his lightsaber and says "I am a Jedi, like my father before me." It's such an incredible feeling of triumph and courage. It's the reason you watch films like this--to feel real heroism and learn to be heroic yourself.

    I am totally with you @General Kenobi on this point and THAT SCENE!
    There has been one day, in my life, when I decided to dive into SW. Until then, I did barely watch the movies when they came on TV, and not dig the story at all. It was the old times, when only 3 SW movies did exist.
    Then the years have gone on. In the meanwhile, my daughter was born, in 2002. One day around the 2010's, it came to me to watch EPISODE I: the Phantom Menace.
    When the picture just above dropped, I suddenly stumbled: Anakin was less or more as old as my daughter, and suddenly, I saw her on screen, I saw my little daughter forced to quit his mother.
    That totally moved me. And I literally plunged into SW, both feet forward. And I've never emerged since :)

    My name is daRinze and I am a SW-olic since 11 years.






    I didn't watch any episode past the first 3 of season 1.
    Could you tell me please what season/episode you are speaking about, so I may watch it (you got me with your thoughts :) ) ? Thanks ;)

    It happens in Season 4 Episode 10, but it’s much more impactful if you’ve seen the whole series. Once you get past those first few episodes of Season 1, it’s a blast!

    For me that entire scene is enhanced having watched how close Anakin & Obi-Wan were throughout the Clone Wars series.

    I understand.... but what I've seen of this show definitely enclosed it inside the "FOR KIDS UNDER 13 ONLY" closet :( (please don't blame me, I just could not get into this show).

    Skip to Season 2 and give it another try. Season 1 is pretty much a self-contained kids show. Season 2 and onward are Clone Wars quality Star Wars storytelling

    Also, try watching the show in the official time line order from Lucas Film. That helped me enjoy the show better since I didn't watch it when it originally aired since the show jumps around a lot.

    Thanks.
    Are there some "filler" episodes that can safely be skipped in seasons 2, 3, 4 ?

    I'd most likely say when Anakin and Ashoka say goodbye for the last time.

    Also Kylo saying "Dad" in TROS. Not crazy about the movie overall, but that moment, man.

    There are a LOT of emotional moments in Star Wars, but one moment stood out to me since I can definitively remember getting emotional when watching this scene for the first time: Leia's death in TROS.
    Although I didn't cry, I certainly had tears in my eyes when I first saw that scene in the cinema. I thought it was very well done considering Carrie Fisher had died in 2016, and her death definitely made it more emotional.

    This is a GREAT Thread, thanks! So many emotional moments....this old man has been known to shed a tear or two at various SW moments.

    I am drawn back to the end of TLJ.....wow. What an incredble set of scenes there. Amazing cinematography.

    The most emotional moment for me has to be the last 20 minutes of The Return of the Jedi. The final battle between Luke and Vader, Vader saving Luke's life (Vader's redemption), Luke seeing Vader's face at last, and, last but not least, Luke watching his father on the burning pyre (realizing that he might be the only living person in the galaxy that will see his father as a good person at the end of it all). While the rest of the galaxy cheers, Luke is wrestling between joy and sorrow at the loss of his second father figure. And then at the end of the movie, Luke smiles as he sees his father become one with the force, along with Yoda and Ben Kenobi. He knows that they will be watching him as he looks towards the future, containing all the lessons and guidance that they've given him. *sigh* yep

    Those last 20 minutes were definitely the most emotional for me.

    Padme: "Anakin, you're breaking my heart..."

    This scene is much more than two human lovers, because Star Wars was written as a myth. Joseph Campbell, an inspiration behind Star Wars, said that all the characters and gods in myths refer to you and your psyche. He said people get caught up in the prose of metaphors, failing to realize that the myth is really poetry about them. This, and other scenes in the prequel trilogy, is about the loss of higher spiritual connection, and love in general, which enables that connection. With the loss of Padme, the whole galaxy falls with the temple, into darkness, and the archetype of evil, Palpatine rises to rule the whole galaxy.

    The word padme means lotus flower, an important symbol in eastern religions. She is symbolically starting to die here because Anakin is killing the care inside of him. It's an occult allegory about the fall of consciousness that leads to disaster and the rise of a dark empire in oneself and in one's own world. In the Rise of Skywalker, Palpatine sits on a dead lotus (padme) throne.

    Without a doubt, here is the most emotional scene for me.
    “Father, please.”

    To this day, I must leave the room when this part comes on. The torture really bothered me as a child and it still gets me to this day.

    In ANH, Luke stands in the wind, looking at the charred remains of his guardians. He is set upon his warrior's journey. In TFA we see the First Order Flame troopers which harkens back to this very scene.
