May The Force Be With You - TopTenMM Star Wars Moments
One of the most interesting themes in the Star Wars universe is that of the Force - the all-encompassing energy field - that not everyone can tap into, but that gives unimaginable power to those who do.
What makes the Force especially enthralling for viewers is that it can be used for good or bad, as the Jedi and the Sith show us repeatedly. For the Jedi, the Force helps in defense and in attaining knowledge. For the Sith, it helps in attack and gaining control.
Excluding lightsaber duels (which in themselves spectacularly showcase the use of the Force), here are the Top 10 most impressive use of the Force moments from the Star Wars movie universe:
Luke Skywalker's astral projection of himself onto Crait for the battle against Kylo Ren - The Last Jedi
Yoda versus Emperor Palpatine in the Senate using senate pods as missiles - Revenge of the Sith
The Emperor unleashing Force lightning on a defenseless Luke Skywalker - Return of the Jedi
