8 reasons Star Wars is the best Christmas movie

Star Wars truly is one of the best film franchises out there, and it is now returning to our screens with Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens! We think that these films really are the best movies to watch a Christmas and here’s why

1. The weather is very festive

The Rebel Alliance hide out in ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ really provides to perfect setting for a white Christmas.



2. It brings the whole family together

At the end of The Return of the Jedi, we find out that Leia and Luke are in fact twins! Look at how this fantastic trilogy brings the whole family together, unfortunately Darth Vader is their father, but no family is perfect.

3. Just like Christmas it has a brilliant soundtrack

You can enjoy an array of epic soundtracks throughout the films or maybe just listen to the cantina band from Star Wars: A New Hope on repeat…

4. You get some fantastic present ideas

I mean who wouldn’t want a lightsaber for Christmas!



5. It shows us what a Christmas party would look like on another planet

The end of Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace really shows us how to celebrate a Christmas party in style!

6. It reminds us that if we try hard enough, anything is possible… even lifting an X-Wing out of the swamp just using the force!



7. Just like a Christmas cracker, we can all appreciate the power of a one liner

Obi-Wan Kenobi: What took you so long?
Anakin Skywalker: Oh, you know me, Master; I couldn’t find a speeder that I really liked…

8. And finally, after watching any Star Wars movie, everyone can imagine themselves living in that world
