Star Wars is filled with plenty of incredible moments and some of those moments don’t belong to scenes packed with action but instead the simple art of dialogue. Dialogue is sometimes the most magical and memorable moment in a Star Wars film and there are surprisingly a lot of dialogue-driven scenes that helps bind the movies together in simple but concise ways. So I’m going to share with you my favorite conversations in Star Wars. Enjoy! 🙂
15. Yoda’s Death
One of my favorite moments in Return of the Jedi is when Luke went to see Yoda again because of the profound and riveting dialogue between the ancient master and apprentice. Yoda tells Luke that he is dying but not to fret, for that is the way of the Force. Then Luke asks Yoda if Darth Vader really is his father which shines a light on how deeply pivotal that moment in the previous movie was. For years he had been hoping that the dark lord had been telling a lie but to find out that indeed he was Vader’s son was a horrific truth. And then at the end of this incredible scene Yoda tells him that there’s another Skywalker out there somewhere before becoming one with the Force. Um…that’s awesome. Even though I already knew that Luke and Leia were brother and sister by the time I watched the original trilogy this scene still felt very impactful.
14. The Spark Lives
While The Last Jedi had its mistakes and annoyances one thing it definitely had in abundance was fabulous dialogue and this scene was one of many of those lovable moments for me. As Poe realizes that Luke is sacrificing himself to save the Resistance he knows what his new job must be, finding a way for the Resistance to survive, and it’s just such a fun scene to watch as he banters with C-3PO and figures out the “crystal critters” are trying to lead them to safety. Love it.
