THE IMPRACTICAL JOKERS STAR DISCUSSES WHY A CLASSIC HAN AND LEIA MOMENT MEANS SO MUCH TO HIM.
In My Favorite Scene, StarWars.com invites special guest writers to discuss which one scene or moment in the saga most resonates with them.
I was asked which scene from Star Wars is my favorite, and I’ve discovered that coming up with an answer isn’t as easy as I’d originally thought. Fine. Usually, nothing worth doing is easy, anyway. What surprised me was that it’s also an oddly more emotional decision than you might think. I mean, look, these movies have been with me my entire life, as close and as dear to my heart as family. Closer than some family, even. So anytime I felt sure that I had nailed what must be my favorite scene, an entirely different scene would pop into my head and argue its case for being the right selection. It’s a very difficult decision to make.
How could you easily pick that moment at the end of A New Hope when Han Solo flies in to save Luke’s bacon at the Death Star, hooting and laughing and blowing away TIE fighters over, say, the big reveal when Darth Vader tells Luke that he is his father. I mean, one shows us so much about the meaning of friendship and loyalty, but the other just blew my mind completely. I didn’t even know that there COULD be twists that like that in the movies and, by extension, life.

Forget lightsabers and spaceships, a new university course has been set up to explore the deeper meanings of George Lucas’s Star Wars films.
And students won’t have to travel to a galaxy far, far away to take part in the short philosophy course.
The day-long open access course is being run by the University of Glasgow.
Star Wars and Philosophy: Destiny, Justice and the Metaphysics of the Force will be held on 4 May – the date recognised as Star Wars day by fans.
It will examine how far people can be responsible for their own actions when their destiny is governed by “the force”.
Philosophy teacher John Donaldson will introduce concepts of free will and moral responsibility against the backdrop of the epic space drama.
The lifelong Star Wars fan said the course had been designed to broaden the appeal of philosophy.
It is part of a range of courses that are open to the general public but do not carry degree credits.
Dr Donaldson said: “It’s a way of making philosophy more accessible. It’s an unfortunate fact that philosophy tends to be hidden away in universities.
“You don’t get programmes about philosophy on TV for example, which you do about other academic subjects.
“You don’t tend to get books that deal with philosophical ideas. It’s not that accessible.
“We hope it will engage people and encourage them to take philosophy further.”
He said the university had previously ran courses exploring the philosophical questions raised by The Sopranos, The Wire and The Simpsons.
The first Star Wars film, starring Mark Hammill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, was released in 1977.
