Guest Post: My Top Ten Favourite Quotes from Star Wars by Sally Ann Melia

My top ten favourite quotes from Star Wars.



What makes Star Wars so great?

The story goes that George Lucas had made a long movie, and originally written an even longer script. However the final edit, the cutting of the sequences together, the overlay of a colour wash, and most of all the music was to make Star Wars A New Hope, an unforgettable experience.

I saw the film in 1976 as a child, and it was the single most exciting film I ever saw. You can see my reflections on seeing the film on my home page video: In a nutshell, I started writing Science Fiction Space Opera fiction a short time after.

Please write to me at if you have suggestions for quotes from the other two Star Wars films or if you would like me to give you my best quotes from other films.
