Yoda and the Force (4:01)

Cover of Star Wars Trilogy: Anthology (disc 2: The Empire Strikes Back)

From Star Wars Trilogy: Anthology (disc 2: The Empire Strikes Back) and 12 other releases

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.

    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.

    Powerful stuff, we went over this cue in my film music class and it really reminded me of how amazing John William's work is.
