Star Wars Challenge Day 20

Today is favorite moment from A New Hope.

To better remember the movie (it's been a while since I've watched it), I went through a bunch of screen captures and came up with three parts I really like.

Because you all know how decisive I am.

One is when everyone's on their way to Alderaan and they're just hanging out - Luke is practicing with his lightsaber, Ben is helping him, R2 and Chewbacca play holochess with 3P0 looking on, and Han adding his comments about hokey religions and upsetting Wookiees.

Second is when Luke goes off to find Leia's cell and Han tries to dissuade more troopers from coming up.  This part is just so funny and Han's "how are you?" is one of my favorite lines from that movie.

Finally, when Darth Vader's ship gets knocked away by Han, and Luke is able to trust the Force and land his shot.  So happy in many ways.

While we're talking about A New Hope, here's a neat video my dad showed me a while ago.

Does anyone know of a good Star Wars gallery that doesn't mind if their pictures are used (with or without credit)?  I know of a few galleries, but they are only of certain parts of the saga.

Hope you all have a good week, and may the Lord be with you!


  1. Haha, Han trying to talk to the Imperial officer when they're in the cell bay is hilarious!

    And I love that video! I think I've seen that guy play ragtime versions of Mario and Harry Potter too, it's pretty awesome.

    Oh, and I use this site whenever I make my Star Wars graphics (it's super nice because it's screenshots of the blu-ray, so it's super quality):

  2. Thanks so much for the link Sarah! That is super helpful! Ooh, I'll have to check out the ragtime Mario! :D

  3. LOL, When han talks to the stormtroopers is soo funny! LOL
