Star Wars fans all over the world are gearing up for the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The new trailer and a handful of TV spots have caused a whirlwind of theories as to what’s going to happen in the movie. Will Kylo Ren get a redemption arc? Will Rey go full on dark side? Will we see a force ghost reunion between Anakin, Luke, and Yoda? Hopefully, fans can come together and enjoy the final chapter in the Star Wars saga.
All this excitement got us thinking about our favorite moments in Star Wars, so we decided to rank them. Keep in mind, this list only includes live-action feature films. We’ll have to table the discussion on The Mandalorian, The Clone Wars, Rebels, etc. So, with that said, let’s look at our top 10 moments in Star Wars.
#10 Shake it off
New York Comic-Con has come and gone, and with it our Tamashii Nations Star Wars display at the Crystal Palace, located inside the Javits Center. There we had a life-size Meisho Darth Vader replica, complete with wearable samurai armor. Each day attendees of all ages lined up to have their photos taken with the dark lord. The statue was the ultimate centerpiece for our booth, and we photographed all of the contest winners from our Scouter Stamp Rally in front of it. Hopefully you had a chance to swing by our booth and check in with us to see what's in store for our Star Wars samurai figures.

Disney’s D23 event is quickly approaching and we can’t wait for more Star Wars news. We are expecting to see a new trailer for The Mandalorian, a Star Wars live-action series set to premiere Nov. 12 exclusively on the Disney+ streaming service. If we are lucky, Disney will drop a new trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Hopefully it will feature loads of new content, but still leave a little mystery for wacky fan theories.
All this excitement for Star Wars has us thinking about some of our favorite scenes featuring R2D2. This delightful astromech droid has saved our heroes across the far reaches of the galaxy. For the sake of this list we decided not to include any events that occurred in novels, comics, or animated series. Otherwise, the list might never end.
