One of the best parts of watching the Star Wars franchise is the high-speed, action-packed chase scenes. Recently a fan asked, “What's the best chase sequence in Star Wars?” Here are the top-voted responses ranked in order of popularity.
“Say what you will, but I enjoyed the Snow Speeder Chase scene in The Force Awakens,” one user admitted. “Agreed, some of the Millennium Falcon chase cam shots on Jakku were so good,” said a second commenter.
“The whole experience was extraordinary. Sitting down in the theatre seats not even warmed yet, five seconds after the title crawl, they throw you straight into the action with a high-stakes sequence that is Star Wars in its purest definition.”
“I came here to say when Ani and Obi are chasing Zam. The banter was fun. Anakin jumping from the speeder, falling through towering Coruscant skyscrapers, and landing on Zam's vehicle was an incredible display of his Force capabilities,” another agreed.
The Trench Run from A New Hope. One person agreed, “I'll second the trench run, first because it's incredible and holds up 45 years later, and secondly because I probably can't even explain how mind-bindingly better it was at the time than anything else.”
Speeder Bike Scene! “My favorite has always been the speeder bike scene in Return of the Jedi,” one person shared. Another said, “And the end was ridiculous, dismounted Luke, deflecting blaster shots and cutting the dude's speeder bike in half. Are you kidding me? So good!”
