The Empire Strikes Back Voted Best Star Wars Film Ever

The Empire Strikes Back Voted Best Star Wars Film Ever

Well, you've voted and the results are in and according to you guys, The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars movie ever made. I can only assume most of you haven't seen Return of the Jedi...

In honour of R2-D2 actor Kenny Baker's birthday yesterday, LADbible asked which film was the greatest in the franchise.

And it seems as though you all couldn't get enough of the classic flick which contains perhaps the most iconic Star Wars line of all time when Darth Vader reveals to Luke Skywalker: "No. I am your father." (I'm not going to apologise for that spoiler, the film is 40 years old, you've had plenty of time to watch it.)

Kicking off round one in our poll, it was a choice between The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.

In the end Revenge of the Sith got itself in the final poll, after getting a whopping 69.2 percent of the vote. The Phantom Menace was second place with 18.6 percent while Attack of the Clone earned just 12.3 percent.

The next round pitted the three original titles against each other, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. In third place was A New Hope with just 14 percent, while Return of the Jedi pulled in 30.4 percent of the votes - not quite enough to top Empire, which romped home with 55.6 percent.

The third poll saw The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker face off. The clear winner was The Force Awakens with 50.2 percent of the vote, while The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker were almost neck and neck with 24.6 percent and 25.2 percent respectively.

The fourth round was Rogue One vs Solo vs The Clone Wars. Solo managed just 12.4 percent of the votes, while The Clones Wars got 20.5 percent, meaning Rogue One earned a massive 67.1 percent.

On to the final, with Revenge of the Sith, Empire, The Force Awakens and Rogue One all vying for the top spot.

But it was a hands-down win for the 1980 classic The Empire Strikes Back, which took more than half the vote (51.3 percent), followed by Revenge of the Sith on 27.1 percent, Rogue One on 14.5 percent and trailing way at the back, The Force Awakens with just 7.1 percent.
