4. Return of the Jedi (1983)
The iconic conclusion to the original trilogy was absolutely epic, but it did face some setbacks because of George Lucas’s sudden decisions to give the franchise some more glamour. The last-minute decision to make Leia the lost sister of Luke turned the whole storyline into a matinee soap opera.
However, we cannot deny that it did manage to delight us all with a fantastic ending to the one of the greatest movie trilogies in the history of cinema. It turned Anakin into a splendidly tragic hero while Vader’s attempt to rescue his son from the Emperor set the tone of the entire Star Wars series.
The fans may seem unhappy about the Ewok business, but we have to admit, the movie managed to deliver the original storyline of Star Wars that revolves around a powerful technological empire that is challenged and defeated by a primitive race.
3. The Last Jedi (2017)
The latest release, The Last Jedi, did not disappoint, and aside from a few dialogues that failed to deliver, we have to admit, the movie managed to provide a massive dose of comic relief. The director duo did a tremendous job, and it is definitely safe to conclude that this film managed to innovate the visuals and storyline remarkably well.
It may not be able to beat the powerful storyline of the first two classics that are responsible for turning Star Wars into such a dynamic cult, but it comes really close to being the best Star Wars movie.
