    What I enjoy about star wars is all those little things that really add to the star wars myths. There's also those little moments in the films that are small but memorable

    Blue milk is best milk.

    Also, I'd have to mention that little snake seen for a brief time on Dagobah when Luke is about to enter the cave. Neat detail that added to the atmosphere, not to mention the sounds coupled with music!

    Luke Skywalker playing with the model T-16 Skyhopper in Episode IV: A New Hope:

    http://www.starwars.com/databank/t-16-skyhopper

    That was one of those "great little moments" for me:

    a scene nearly "meta" / self-referential, particularly in the sense of the merchandise to arrive and then myself and other kids at the time around the world discovering the creative awesomeness of Star Wars toys, especially the ships.

    (...now making silly X-Wing and TIE fighter sounds
    ...running through the room with scaled-down models,
    nearly tripping...)


    (x-wing) ... (tie) ... (luke)

    It's a bit more significant than what some other people have mentioned, but I'm going to with Luke's new lightsaber in RotJ.
    He catches it, he turns it on, you notice "Hey! His last one wasn't green!", and you know exactly what went on.
    I think it's just a great moment of tiny storytelling,

    R2-D2 jumping/moving side to side in excitement during the award ceremony at the end of ANH. It shows how much emotional expression and personality the droids can have. I would go as far to say that I think R2 is the most human character of the series, despite being a machine. When he interacts with people you never know what he is saying exactly, but from the reaction of others, you know its something funny/rude/sarcastic/sentimental. All that expression from just a few beeps and wobbles.

    You made me remember a tumblr post about what Anakin, Padme and Leia had done by the age of 19 and Luke "he was making silly spaceship sounds" lol. But anyway he is endearing doing that!

    the blue lines of Force lightning that framed Vader's face as Palpatine smokes him going over into he shaft.
    talk about a tiny detail, but it burned into my psyche as a kid because it was horrifying and powerful ~ and i realized in that moment that Vader was probably not going to make it.

    I have many little moments I love from the OT, but here is one of them: the face that Han does at Endor when he tells Leia he's sure Luke wasn't at the Death Star when it was destroyed and Leia says "yes, I can feel it". He makes such a funny face because he is jealous about Leia caring about Luke (but he does not know yet they are twins!).

    fav quote:
    -what a piece of junk!!!
    Describes perfectly the characteristic "rusty and old-looking" of the SW worlds, where nobody is amazed of looking at the Millenium Falcon

    Luke tilting his head when he first meets Leia with the helmet on, then kind of remembering and taking it off. In ESB, it's the "You have your moments" scene. Leia gives Han a little peck when they float away with the rest of the trash. Later in ESB, right after the Falcon jumps to hyperspeed, Vader just walks away quietly, Piett kind of waits for a force choke, but nothing happens. Vader is just too upset and he lives another day. In ROTJ, my fave little moment is the walker comes up to the bunker, Han puts his hands up and out pops Chewie. I absolutely love that. And Lando getting into the music at the end.

    My favorite little detail that I always look for when I watch the original trilogy is when the stormtrooper bumps his head on the door. I can't remember which one it's in though. I think ANH? [​IMG]

    For "little" moments, I would pick when the cantina band just play their music again after a big fight. It so clearly shows how bad the place is.
