Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is absolutely one of our favorite movies.
Sure, it would spawn five more films. But, what is it about that first journey into a galaxy far, far away that got us?
We present 11 moments from the first
Star Wars movie that have made the iconic movie so unforgettable.
You knew you were in for something truly special when that Imperial fighter flew into the scene, feeling like it was literally going right over our heads.
The Force wasn't only a foreign concept to Luke, but to audiences as well. When Obi-Wan explained it to Luke in this iconic scene... we were sold.
When Darth Vader walked onto Leia's ship, bodies on the floor all around him, he emerged from the smoke, and an iconic movie villain was born. Then, he spoke!
In the Cantina when Han Solo shoots Greedo, it wasn't only just an introduction to the unlikely hero that is Han Solo. It was an announcement of a movie legend that we will likely never see again.

The Cantina scene showed us that this truly is a galaxy far, far away... that is filled with all sorts of fascinating characters. And try hearing that Cantina band song and not have it in your head all day!
When Darth Vader chokes Admiral Motti to near death and says, “I find your lack of faith disturbing," we are exposed to how The Force can be used for evil in its most menacing of ways.
Princess Leia was a different kind of movie heroine. There were few like her before, and she opened the door for all the fighting female characters that would come.
One of the more famous quotes to come out of Star Wars arrives when Obi-Wan tells the Storm Troopers that "those are not the droids you are looking for." Seeing him literally command the minds of others had us beyond fascinated with the character of Obi-Wan.

When Luke witnesses Obi-Wan and Darth Vader fighting in that momentous scene, Obi-Wan makes the ultimmate sacrifice. His death would hang over the entire trilogy.
Just when we thought Han had flown off somewhere else, other than to join in the fight, he surprises us... and his timing was perfect. Han shot those Imperial Fighters and as he said best, "You're all clear, kid!" Death star... say goodbye.
After Han clears the way, Luke listens to Obi-Wan telling him to "Use the force, Luke." He focuses... and the Death Star is destroyed!
