1. Duel of the Fates.
Despite the bulk of this list coming from Revenge of the Sith, the film widely regarded as the best of the prequels, the top moment of the prequel trilogy came from Episode I. John Williams’s haunting “Duel of the Fates” begins to play; Maul ignites his double-bladed lightsaber, and the death-waltz begins.
The music, the choreography, Ray Park’s extraordinary stunt work, and the emotional overlay of the scene as it builds to its crescendo all combine to create not only the top moment of the prequels, but one of the most memorable in all of the Star Wars films.
So, what are your favorite moments from the prequels?
