Since Star Wars Episode VII will eventually be hitting theaters. I figured I'd count down the greatest lightsaber duels in the franchise. Keep in mind this opinion. Any ways let's begin.
#1 Luke Skywalker Vs. Darth Vader - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of The Jedi (1983).
Return of The Jedi always has and always will be my favorite Star Wars movie. This lightsaber fight has everything you could possibly want. Action packed, emotion, intensity and a bad ass atmosphere. The Green and Red colors, the balance of good vs evil all in one. That is what makes this greatest lightsaber duel. Not to mention Luke and Vader actually look like they're trying to kill each other.
#2 Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs. Darth Maul -Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999).
Even though this movie is atrocious and my least favorite Star Wars movie. However. There were some positives about this. The best parts were Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor and this lightsaber fight. What also makes this stand out is that awesome double bladed lightsaber and the kick ass music.
#3 Yoda Vs. Darth Tyranus - Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones (2002).
Probably the best part of Attack of The Clones in my opinion. Screw you haters. Yoda was in youth. What do you expect. I'm not crazy about the prequels either. But Yoda fighting actually got me excited. It was also cool to see him fight Darth Tryanus after Obi-Wan and Anakin getting their asses kicked.
#4 Anakin Skywalker Vs. Asajj Ventress - Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003 - 2005).
First of all this so much better than new Clone Wars cartoon. I gotta for animated lightsaber duel this kicked ass. The animation is cool, everything about this fight is really exciting. Full lightsaber duel with one person using a lightsaber fighting someone with two lightsabers. You can't ask more than that.
#5 General Grievous Vs. Jedi - Star Wars Clone Wars (2003 - 2005).
It's shame Grievous wasn't this much of a bad ass in Revenge of The Sith. But here was his first debut. His menacing voice and to see him crush Jedi easily which shows Grieovus that he's not someone who you wanna piss off.
Those the top 5 lightsaber fights. What are yours? Comment below let me know.
