One of my favorite things about Star Wars are its movies’ end scenes. From The Phantom Menace to the latest installment, The Last Jedi, each film’s ending is wildly different and unique and I love that. Today I’m excited to rank all of the movies’ final scenes. Enjoy!
9. Attack of the Clones
Attack of the Clones has, by a long shot, my least favorite ending. In fact, I dislike this final scene so much that I stop the movie every time it comes to this part because I just don’t feel like seeing Anakin and Padme suck facing anymore. Ugh. Gross. This is the only Star Wars movie where I literally don’t watch the end and that’s why it’s undoubtedly the worst ending out of all of the movies.
8. Return of the Jedi
Whether you watch the Ewok version or the new version with Hayden Christensen’s Anakin as the ghost this ending is a very enjoyable finale to the original trilogy. I remember when I used to watch this and I just wished that there would be another movie afterwards. Now when I see this ending there is an actual continuation and I am just so happy about it. I mean we get to see all of these characters (beside Lando) in their old age and what ended up becoming each of their eventual destinies. Unfortunately, every single one of them didn’t have happy endings but at least I know that and I don’t have to imagine where they ended up. That’s so awesome!
7. The Last Jedi
While The Last Jedi is, at the moment, tied with Rogue One as my favorite Star Wars movie its ending was surprisingly less enjoyable than I thought it should’ve been. The Last Jedi was such a serious film throughout the entire movie and then it ended in such a lackluster fashion. I was okay with Leia talking to Rey about the Resistance moving forward and hope, blah blah, but it was kind of strange how dire a situation it had been before that time and yet the remaining Resistance members were chatting in the Millenium Falcon lounge like they were at a cantina or something. And the final scene with the Force-wielding boy was perfectly fine but it feels a little disjointed from the previous scene. The first time I watched the movie I thought it was over once it showed the iconic ship in hyperspace. Then it jumped to these kids on Canto Bight and at first I had no idea what it had to do with the rest of the movie. The fact that the two scenes didn’t flow together seamlessly is why this ending is so low on this list.
