My Favorite Scene: The Classic Clash in the Snow

In My Favorite Scene, StarWars.com invites special guest writers to discuss which one scene or moment in the saga resonates with them most. In this installment, Andy Weir, author of The Martian and the new Project Hail Mary, discusses why he loves the centerpiece action sequence from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

Star Wars is a story of bravery, destiny, valor, and perseverance. But none of those come without setbacks, failures, and defeats. And nowhere is that more strongly demonstrated than in the Battle of Hoth. It’s one of the most convincingly detailed and logical sci-fi battles ever shown on film. The stakes are high, you fear for the characters’ lives.

And in the end, the good guys lose.

As a viewer, you go into a battle scene expecting the heroes to win the

On the Comlink: What Does Star Wars Mean to You?

On the Comlink is a feature in which StarWars.com writers hop on a call (virtual or old fashioned) and discuss a specific Star Wars topic. In this installment to celebrate Star Wars Day, Dan Brooks, Kristin Baver, Katie Barnes, Dustin Diehl, and Bria LaVorgna discuss how they first became Star Wars fans and what has kept them interested in the galaxy far, far away over the years.

Dan Brooks: This is coming out on May the 4th, so that’s why we’re talking about what Star Wars means to us. I thought we could start by talking about how we all discovered Star Wars. So I’m going to ask Dustin: tell us your Star Wars story — what were your first steps into…

“You Are Truly On Board a Ship”: Inside Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

For Ann Morrow Johnson, an architect and artist currently making the impossible real at Disney Parks, there’s a lot to love about Star Wars. “As an Imagineer, I’m definitely the type of person who enjoys walking around the Parks, and I love that the trash cans are themed to the same environment that you see at the castles or any of the lands. Star Wars is that on steroids,” she tells StarWars.com. “I think if you look at any of the scenes of the movies — everything from an ice-cream maker to the species in the background — I just think there’s such depth and grit of specificity in worldbuilding. It’s an incredible universe to explore.”

Johnson is exploring that universe, or galaxy far, far away, in a manner
