Tear Jerker / Star Wars



  • George Lucas explaining why he stopped making more Star Wars movies in a 2012 interview; the turbulent fanbase just got under his skin so much, that it killed his drive to make any more of them.
    "Why would I make any more, when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?"
  • 2016 has been one particularly tear-jerking year for Star Wars fans with several almuni passing away: Alethea McGrath (Jocasta Nu), Drewe Henley (Garven Dreis aka Red Leader), Erik Bauersfeld (voice of Admiral Ackbar and Bib Fortuna), Ronald Falk (Dexter Jettster), Peter Sumner (Lieutenant Pol Treidum), Ian Liston (Wes Janson), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and most heartbreakingly, Carrie Fisher (Princess/General Leia Organa).
  • This video, which combines Ben Kenobi's monologue to Luke in A New Hope with clips from the prequels.
  • Anytime the "Binary Sunset" theme plays is both this and a Heartwarming Moment. Up to Eleven whenever Luke appears in the Sequel Trilogy.
