  • The Black Samurai shares many similarities with both Darth Vader and Darth Sidious; the black armor, the deep voice, the swordsmanship, the ugly white face, and the unmasking and death that follows.
  • It's also worth noting that samurai movies helped inspire Star Wars to begin with.

Scream 2 (1997)

  • When one character argues that sequels are inferior to their original films, one character counters, "The Empire Strikes Back. Better story, improved effects," which is matched with, "Not a sequel, part of an original planned trilogy."

Scream 3 (2000)

  • In the movie, Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy) leaves Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Dewey Riley (David Arquette) and Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox-Arquette) a video on how to survive a horror movie trilogy, mentioning Return of the Jedi along with The Godfather Part III as the final trilogy films that revealed "something we thought was true, that wasn't true."

Drake Stone then says, "These aren't the droids you're looking for." a classic line in Star Wars.

Sorority Boys (2002)

  • When the two guys/girls are sword-like fighting with lightsabers, the scene is like a lightsaber fight. The music in the background resembles the Star Wars music.
  • Harland Williams' character roars like Chewbacca as he pulls a long, wet clump of hair from the drain and says, "It's like a Wookiee, man!"

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)

  • The General in charge of the American Army speaks in a manner evidently intended as a parody of Admiral Ackbar; at one point, he slurs his words enough to make them incoherent. He also uses a holoprojector to outline the plan of battle, much as Ackbar does in Episode VI.
  • One of the soldiers in Battalion 5 parodies Jar Jar Binks by saying, "Yousa people gonna die?!"
  • After speaking to Stan, when the Clitoris vanishes it resembles the scene from The Empire Strikes Back when Luke's vision of Obi-Wan vanishes and Han comes riding to save him.
  • Cartman fires lightning at Saddam Hussein in a parody of Palpatine's attack on Luke Skywalker in Episode VI. Satan looks back and forth between the two as Cartman prepares to kill Saddam, though when Saddam urges Satan to save him, Satan kills the victim, rather than, as Darth Vader does, killing the attacker.

  • The actor Chris Pine, who played Captain Kirk, said that his performance was inspired by Han Solo and Indiana Jones.[3]
  • On their commentary track on the DVD, the lead production staff freely admitted that they, to some degree, echoed the storytelling of A New Hope, with producer Damon Lindelof calling it the "great myth of our childhood" in the tradition of one of George Lucas's heroes, Joseph Campbell. In two scenes from the film (the young Kirk at dawn gazing upon the under-construction Enterprise and the older Spock first seen while scaring off a monster about to eat Kirk), the similarity to a memorable Episode IV scene (Luke gazing at the Tatooine suns-set and Obi-Wan first seen scaring off the Tusken Raiders attacking Luke) is stated to be quite intentional — Lindelof even describes the former as Kirk's "Tatooine moment."

R2-D2 in the wreckage around the planet Vulcan.

  • When the USS Enterprise warps to Vulcan and meets a field of debris made up of several Starfleet ships destroyed by the Narada, R2-D2 can be vaguely seen among the wreckage.

Team America: World Police (2004)

  • The bar scene in Cairo is based upon the Cantina scene in A New Hope. The music and the shots of the customers are very similar. The Arabic dialogue also sounds like the alien voices.
    • There is a shot one may assume where two Arabs are smoking, much like two similar aliens from the cantina.
    • There is a band which also plays similar instruments as the Modal Nodes — indeed, the music they are playing is the cantina music played backwards. The scene is also reminiscent of Jabba's Palace in Return of the Jedi because some fat guys are sitting there watching a dancer, much like Jabba watching Oola.
  • Near the end of the movie, Gary bluffs his way past the North Korean soldiers guarding the front door of Kim Jong Il's Palace by using a Jedi mind trick on them.
  • Korean: Who the hell you?
  • Gary: I'm with the Film Actors Guild. I'm here to help with the broadcast.

Titan A.E. (2000)

  • It was promoted with, "This is the movie Star Wars fans have been waiting for."
  • There is a scene which establishes the drifter colony. At the bottom, towards the right, there is a particular sphere which looks like the Death Star.
  • Akima quotes Princess Leia's line from The Empire Strikes Back when she asks, "Would it help if I got out and pushed?"

Tommy Boy (1995)

  • At one point Tommy (Chris Farley) quoting Darth Vader's famous line by saying, "Luke, I am your father" into a fan, which makes his voice sound mechanical.

Tomorrowland (2015)

  • In the character Hugo's dramatic entrance the Main Star Wars theme is heard.
  • The Blast from the Past store includes many Star Wars references including a life-size, model of Han Solo frozen in carbonite, a poster of Yoda, R2-D2, the Millennium Falcon, X-Wings, TIE Fighters, an AT-ST and a life-size stormtrooper.
  • The character Ursula Gernsback has Princess Leia's buns hairstyle from Episode IV.
  • The Jetpacks used in the film were insired by the white stormtroopers.
  • The director of The Incredibles (2004), Brad Bird was given the opportunity to direct Episode VII but declined.

Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

  • Media mogul Elliot Carver, referring to the headline "The Empire WILL Strike Back" (a reference to the seemingly inevitable Anglo-Chinese war which 007 works to prevent by proving that Carver, and not China, was responsible for the sinking and crew massacre of a British frigate), says, "I rather like the last one. It isn't even mine." This is actually a reference to an infamous Newsweek cover from the Falklands War, showing a British aircraft carrier with the title "The Empire Strikes Back", which is a second Star Wars film.

Toy Story (1995)

  • When Buzz Lightyear is on the bed after Andy placed him there, a pan is seen through his eyes. Then we can hear breathing that is similar to Darth Vader's.
  • When Buzz and Woody are under the truck in the gas station, Buzz tells Woody, "Right now, poised at the edge of the galaxy, Emperor Zurg has been secretly building a weapon with the destructive capacity to annihilate an entire planet!!! I alone have information that reveals this weapon's only weakness....", which is very similar to what Princess Leia tells Han Solo about the Death Star and Operation Skyhook in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
  • When Sid "interrogates" Woody, he says: "Oh! A survivor! Where's the Rebel base!? Talk!!!" and a bit after this: "Where are your Rebel friends now? Hahahaha!"
  • When Buzz sees the Buzz Lightyear commercial on the TV, the sound we can hear when Buzz "shoots" a laser is a TIE fighter's cannon sound.

Toy Story 2 (1999)

  • In the opening scene with the space backgrounds, the music is very similar to the one we can hear after the Star Wars titles. There is also the moment just after this when Buzz passes by, like after every Star Wars title, a ship passes by.
  • When a camera comes through a trap door in a wall, it is a tribute to Jabba's Palace's camera at the main entrance.
  • Zurg says, "Come to me, my prey," like when Darth Vader says to Luke, "Come to me, my son" in The Empire Strikes Back. At the same moment Buzz goes into a hall that lights up when he enters, just like the one Luke takes during his duel against Darth Vader on Cloud City. The room he arrives in has a great pit that looks just like the one in the Emperor's throne room on the second Death Star. When Zurg arrives, he says: "So, we meet again, Buzz Lightyear, for the last time." like Darth Vader in the Death Star when he says to Obi-Wan "I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last.". And of course Emperor Zurg's design is directly made after Darth Vader's armor, especially the helmet.
  • The opening scene contains a number of sound effects from Star Wars, including Darth Vader's breathing, TIE Fighter, and X-Wing, AT-AT and lightsaber sounds.
  • In their climactic battle, Utility Belt Buzz accuses the robot-like Zurg of having killed his father, to which Zurg responds that he is his father: "No, Buzz, I am your father!" causing a horrified Utility Belt Buzz to yell, "NOOOO!!!" This is a parody of the famous scene in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, where Luke Skywalker learns that Darth Vader is his father.
  • Also, the robot that pops out of a wall-like a camera resembles the Perimeter Droid who pops out of the door to a palace of Jabba the Hutt in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
  • Coincidentally, Toy Story 2 was released in theatres the same year as the VHS and DVD release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

Toy Story 3 (2010)

  • When Buzz is under Lotso's control and takes out his friends, Jessie protests, and he tells her: "Silence, minions of Zurg! You're in the custody of the Galactic Alliance!", which is a reference to the quote of Darth Vader in A New Hope when he tells Princess Leia: "You are part of the Rebel Alliance, and a traitor. Take her away!”
  • At the end, when Trixie and Rex are playing on the computer, we can hear a typical Star Wars sound when they finish their game. This sound is the one heard when C-3PO and R2-D2 flee from the Tantive IV in an escape pod, or when Mars Guo's podracer's motor explodes after having sucked up the tool Sebulba had thrown to it.
  • When Big Baby throws Lotso the Bear into the dumpster, it's a reference to Darth Vader throwing Emperor Palpatine into the reactor in Return Of The Jedi.

Transformers: The Movie

  • The movie's promotional material mentions that the film was "conceived in the epic tradition of Star Wars".
  • One of the film's primary characters, Arcee, has a head design styled in the likeness of Princess Leia's famous "cinnamon bun" hair from A New Hope.
  • Megatron, at one point, uses a lightsaber-type weapon on his battle against Optimus Prime. So does Hot Rod during his training just as Luke Skywalker does.
  • The villain Unicron is a gigantic planet-destroying robotic spheroid, like the Death Star.
  • The sound effect produced when Rodimus Prime opens the Autobot Matrix is a combination of several lightsaber power-up sounds from Star Wars; Nelson Shin, who designed the sound, was also on the sound crew for Transformers: The Movie.
  • At the scene where Rodimus Prime receives the Matrix of leadership, the voice of Optimus Prime is heard. This is a reference to Obi-wan Kenobi saying the phrase "Use the Force, Luke" to Luke Skywalker in the Battle of Yavin.
  • Unicron is voiced by the late Orson Welles, who was considered for the voice of Darth Vader.

  • At the end of the movie, when Russell is trying to escape with the flying house, three dogs in airplanes are going after him. The first dog says, "Raid leader checking in," the second says, "Raid 2 checking in," and the third says, "Raid three checking in," which is a reference to the end of A New Hope where the rebels are going to destroy the first Death Star in their X-wings. They are each code named Red Leader, Red Two, Red Three, etc., and when they check in they say, "Red Leader standing by," "Red Two standing by," etc.
  • When the credits are rolling you see a picture of Mr. Fredricksen and Russel who are going to see Star Wars in a movie theater.

WALL-E (2008)

  • When Auto shocks WALL•E in order to take back the plant and GO-4 watches, this might be a spin on the near-final scene from Return of the Jedi where Emperor Palpatine shocks Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader watches, but in this version, Vader (GO-4) doesn't save him.
