The Peanut Gallery's Top 5 Star Wars Moments

It's George Lucas's birthday! Here are our top 5 Star Wars moments.

DISCLAIMER: these are our top 5 moments from the George Lucas-led Star Wars films, so Episodes I-VI only.


George Lucas is 78 years young today. We sent out our 1-11 Star Wars live-action film rankings on May the Fourth. Now, to honor the GOAT, four of our writers compiled our top 5 moments from Episode I to Episode VI, i.e. George's movies. Some are happy, some are sad, some are just really freaking cool. But they all left an indelible impression on us.


Let us know who you agree with in the comment section, and/or who you think is a big fat idiot.
