Star Wars stands huge in popular culture, and while opinions always differ, the 2010s have given fans moments that made them cheer, cry, and everything in between. Here's our breakdown of the best Star Wars moments of this last decade.
Upon first watching 2015's The Force Awakens, most fans were asking themselves the same question most of the characters struggled with throughout the film: "Where's Luke?"
The Jedi hero was nowhere to be seen for most of the movie, and it was enough to make you wonder if he was going to show up at all.
Luke's eventual portrayal in The Last Jedi would not be met with universal praise. But the moment at the end of The Force Awakens in which Rey finally meets the Jedi master is wonderfully done. After finding all the pieces of Luke's map and landing on the remote island where Skywalker is hiding out, Rey climbs a crest to find him a hooded, cloaked figure. As she holds out the lightsaber to him, Luke throws back his hood and says nothing.
It's a perfect ending that leaves you wanting more. You want to know why he's on the island, why he left the map fragments to be found, and whether or not he has any idea what's been happening in his absence. Heck, you kind of just want to know what his voice sounds like these days.
The Force Awakens brought with it the heartbreaking death of one of the original trilogy's favorite heroes, the original scruffy-lookin' nerf-herder himself, Han Solo.
But before Han proves he hasn't learned the important lesson of staying off catwalks over bottomless shafts, the smuggler returns to the movie screen exactly as he should. With Rey and Finn having stolen the Millennium Falcon while escaping Jakku, they're snatched out of space by a pursuer whom they initially think is affiliated with the First Order. Instead, it's a fan-favorite duo from the original trilogy, hauling carnivorous beasts. Keep watching the video to see the best Star Wars moments of the last decade!
