Yoda and the Force (4:01)

Yoda cousels Luke as he experiences a vision of Han and Leia's capture in the Cloud City by Darth Vader. Luke attempts to raise his X-wing from the swamp and fails; Yoda reaches out and gently guides the X-wing to (relatively) dry ground, giving us a glimpse of the true extent of his power. Contemplative and moving, this piece signals the end of Luke's time on Dagobah.

  • You now, in thinking about this sequence from ESB, think about it: it's Mark Hammil, a puppet, and a prop spaceship lifted by a crane out of water.... and yet throw John Williams' music into the mix and it becomes a work of brilliant art.
  • My personal theme song when in deep thought.
  • Yoda lifting that X-wing out of the swamp and those closing lines: Luke: "I don't believe it." Yoda: "That...is why you fail." Gives me chills every time.
