Only 2 days to go, the wait is almost over! So in our countdown to Star Wars The Force Awakens, we will talk about the 3 most heartbreaking/emotional scenes from the Star Wars saga!
3. Star Wars The Clone Wars 05×20 The Wrong Jedi – “I have to sort this out on my own, without the council and without you.” – Ahsoka
This scene is the last time (we know of maybe in some of the unfinished arcs they saw each other again) Anakin saw Ahsoka (he can expect him to see her again in Star Wars Rebels but it won’t be as Anakin but as Darth Vader that he will see her) and it’s really emotional, I have tears in my eyes everytime I see this scene. Matt Lanter and Ashley Eckstein performances are amazing. The music is wonderful and so are the visuals, this sky between light and dark a kind of vanilla sky it’s just breathtaking. The dialogue, oh the dialogue is just brilliantly written.
2. Star Wars The Clone Wars 05X16 The Lawless – “Remember my dear Obi-Wan, I loved you always, I always will.” – Satine
Satine is one of my favorite character so seeing her die was literally heartbreaking. Obi-Wan and Satine loved each other but never were together unlike Padmé and Anakin, they both chose their “career” over love and it’s really tragic to see her die like this in his arms, it’s so painful plus hearing Satine’s last words adds to the drama and the tears.
1. Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith – “You were my brother Anakin, I loved you.” – Obi-Wan
The music is wonderful, John Williams is a master of movie soundtracks and he did a wonderful job with this one, you can feel the emotions, at some moments it almost feel like the sound of someone who is crying but with musical instruments. Visually it’s literally heartbreaking seeing Anakin burning in front of Obi-Wan his former master, the man who was like a brother for him. Obi-Wan can’t even look at the end, it is so painful to watch this. You can think Obi-Wan could have ended this by finishing Anakin with his lightsaber and there would have been no Vader in armor but Obi-Wan couldn’t, it was already so difficult for him to fight his brother, he couldn’t finish him, he was hoping the lava would but it didn’t. Ewan McGregor’s performance is just Oscar worthy, it breaks my heart everytime, everytime! Hayden Christensen performance is also excellent in this scene, you can feel all Anakin’s anger and hate here. The dialogue is also brilliantly written, the choice of words, it’s the right words to make us cry!
