You can actually download a copy of the screenplay but until about years ago, Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope ( movie) How can I download PDF?.

I want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi like my father. Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

We must be cautious. Three or four seasons. They're up for sale if you want them. Let me see your identification. You don't need to see his identification. We don't need to see his identification.

These aren't the droids you're looking for. These aren't the droids we're looking for. He can go about his business. You can go about your business. Move along. I can't abide those Jawas. Disgusting creatures! Go on, go on. I can't understand how we got by those troops. I thought we were dead. The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded. Do you really think we're gonna find a pilot here that'll take us to Alderaan? Most of the best freighter pilots are to be found here, only watch your step.

This place can be a little rough. I'm ready for anything. Come along, R2. We don't serve their kind here. Your droids, they'll have to wait outside. We don't want them here. Why don't you wait out by the speeder? We don't want any trouble. I heartily agree with you, sir. I'll have one of those. I'm sorry. I don't like you, either. You just watch yourself.

The Internet Movie Script Database (IMSDb)

We're wanted men. I have the death sentence on 12 systems. I'll be careful. You'll be dead! This little one's not worth the effort. Come, let me get you something. I'm all right. Chewbacca here is first mate on a ship that might suit us. I don't like the look of this. Han Solo. I'm captain of the Millennium Falcon. Chewie here tells me you're looking for passage to the Alderaan system. Yes, indeed, if it's a fast ship. Fast ship? You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?

Should I have? It's the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. I've outrun imperial starships. Not the local bulk cruisers, mind you. I'm talking about the big Corellian ships now. She's fast enough for you, old man. What's the cargo? Only passengers What is it, some kind of local trouble? Let's just say we'd like to avoid any imperial entanglements. Well, that's the real trick, isn't it? And it's gonna cost you something extra.

We could almost download our own ship for that! But who's gonna fly it, kid, you? You bet I could. I'm not such a bad pilot myself. We don't have to sit here and listen- We can pay you 2, now plus 15 when we reach Alderaan. Seventeen, huh? You guys got yourselves a ship. We'll leave as soon as you're ready. Docking Bay Looks like somebody's beginning to take an interest in your handiwork.

We'll check it out. Those guys must really be desperate. This could really save my neck. Get back to the ship, get it ready. You'll have to sell your speeder. That's O. I'm never coming back to this planet again. Yes, Greedo. As a matter of fact, I was just going to see your boss.

Tell Jabba that I've got his money. You should have paid him when you had the chance.

Jabba's put a price on your head so large I'm lucky I found you first. Yeah, but this time I've got the money. If you give it to me, I might forget I found you. I don't have it with me. Tell Jabba- Jabba's through with you. He has no time for smugglers Even I get boarded sometimes. Do you think I had a choice? You can tell that to Jabba.

He may only take your ship. Over my dead body. That's the idea. I've been looking forward to this for a long time. I'll bet you have.

Sorry about the mess. Her resistance to the mind probe is considerable. It'll be some time before we can extract any information from her. The final checkout is completed. All systems are operational. What course shall we set? Perhaps she would respond to an alternative form of persuasion.

What do you mean? I think it is time we demonstrated the full power of this station. Set your course for Alderaan. With pleasure. Lock the door, R2. Check this side of the street. The door's locked. Move on to the next. I would much rather have gone with Master Luke than stay here with you. I don't know what all this trouble is about, but I'm sure it must be your fault.

Give it to me. I'll take it. Look at this. Ever since the XP came out, they just aren't in demand. It'll be enough. Come out of there, Solo! Right here, Jabba. I've been waitin' for you. You didn't think I was gonna run, did you? Why haven't you paid me Look, Jabba, next time you want to talk to me, come see me yourself. Don't send one of these twerps. Han, I can't make exceptions. What if everyone who smuggled for me It's not good business. Look, Jabba, even I get boarded sometimes. You think I had a choice?

But I got a nice, easy charter. I'll pay ya back, plus a little extra. I just need a little more time. Han, my boy, you're the best.

So, for an extra Fifteen, Jabba. Don't push it. But if you fail me again I'll put a price on your head so big If the ship's as fast as he's boasting, we ought to do well. She'll make. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

But we're a little rushed, so if you'll just get on board, we'll get outta here. Hello, sir. Which way? Stop that ship! Blast them! Chewie, get us out of here! Oh, my. I'd forgotten how much I hate space travel. Our passengers must be hotter than I thought. Try and hold 'em off.

Star Wars (1977) aka Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

Angle the deflector shields while I make the calculations for the jump to light speed. Stay sharp. There's two more comin' in. They're gonna try and cut us off. Why don't you outrun 'em? I thought you said this thing was fast! Watch your mouth, kid, or you're gonna find yourself floating home.

We'll be safe enough once we make the jump to hyperspace. Besides, I know a few maneuvers. We'll lose 'em. Here's where the fun begins.

How long before you can make the jump to light speed? It'll take a few moments to get the coordinates from the navicomputer. Are you kidding? At the rate they're gaining? Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dustin' crops, boy! Without precise calculations, we'd fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova, and that would end your trip real quick, wouldn't it? What's that flashing? We're losing a deflector shield.

Go strap yourselves in. I'm gonna make the jump to light speed. We've entered the Alderaan system. Governor Tarkin. I should have expected to find you holding Vader's leash. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board. Charming to the last. You don't know how hard I found it signing the order to terminate your life.

I'm surprised you had the courage to take the responsibility yourself. Princess Leia, before your execution I would like you to be my guest at a ceremony that will make this battle station operational. No star system will dare oppose the emperor now.

The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers. Not after we demonstrate the power of this station. In a way, you have determined the choice of the planet that will be destroyed first. Since you are reluctant to provide us with the location of the rebel base, I have chosen to test this station's destructive power on your home planet ofAlderaan. Alderaan is peaceful. We have no weapons.

You can't possibly You would prefer another target? A military target?

Then name the system. I grow tired of asking this, so it will be the last time. Where is the rebel base? They're on Dantooine. You see, Lord Vader? She can be reasonable. Continue with the operation. You may fire when ready.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) Movie Script

You're far too trusting. Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration, but don't worry. We will deal with your rebel friends soon enough. Commence primary ignition. Are you all right? What's wrong? I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened. You'd better get on with your exercises. Well, you can forget your troubles with those imperial slugs.

I told you I'd outrun them. Don't everybody thank me at once. Anyway, we should be at Alderaan about hours. Now be careful, R2. He made a fair move. Screaming about it can't help you. Let him have it. It's not wise to upset a Wookiee. But, sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid. That's 'cause a droid don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.

I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2. Let the Wookiee win. Remember, a Jedi can feel the Force flowing through him.

You mean it controls your actions?

Partially, but it also obeys your commands. You don't believe in the Force, do you? Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field controls my destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

I suggest you try it again, Luke. This time, let go your conscious self With the blast shield down, I can't even see. How am I supposed to fight? Your eyes can deceive you. Don't trust them. Stretch out with your feelings. You see? You can do it. I call it luck. In my experience, there's no such thing as luck. Look, good against remotes is one thing. Good against the living, that's something else. You know, I did feel something. I could almost see the remote.

That's good. You've taken your first step into a larger world. Our scout ships have reached Dantooine. They found the remains of a rebel base, but they estimate that it has been deserted for some time. They are now conducting an extensive search of the surrounding systems. She lied. She lied to us!

I told you she would never consciously betray the rebellion. Terminate her immediately. Stand by, Chewie. Here we go. Cut in the sublight engines. What the Arrghh arrgh! We've come out of hyperspace into a meteor shower. Some kind of asteroid collision. It's not on any of the charts. What's going on? Our position's correct, except no Alderaan. Where is it? That's what I'm trying to tell you, kid. It ain't there. It's been totally blown away. Destroyed by the Empire.

The entire starfleet couldn't destroy the whole planet. It would take 1, ships with more firepower than- [Beep] There's another ship coming in. Maybe they know what happened. It's an imperial fighter. It followed us!

It's a short-range fighter. There aren't any bases around here. Where did it come from? It sure is leaving in a big hurry.

If they identify us, we're in big trouble. Not if I can help it. Chewie, jam its transmissions. It would be as well to let it go.

It's too far out of range. Not for long. A fighter that size couldn't get this deep into space on its own. He must have gotten lost, been part of a convoy or something. Well, he ain't gonna be around long enough to tell anybody about us. Look at him. He's heading for that small moon. I think I can get him before he gets there.

He's almost in range. That's no moon. It's a space station. It's too big to be a space station. I have a very bad feeling about this. Turn the ship around. I think you're right. Full reverse! Chewie, lock in the auxiliary power. Chewie, lock in the auxiliary power!

Why are we still moving towards it?! We're caught in a tractor beam. It's pulling us in! There's got to be something you can do! There's nothing I can do about it, kid. I'm at full power. I'm gonna have to shut down. They're not gonna get me without a fight. You can't win, but there are alternatives to fighting. Clear Bay We are opening the magnetic field. To your stations!

Come with me. Close all outboard shields. Its markings match those ofa ship that blasted its way out of Mos Eisley. They must be trying to return the stolen plans to the princess. She may yet be of some use to us. Unlock 1, 5, 7, and 9. Release charge. There's no one on board, sir.


According to the log, the crew abandoned ship right after takeoff. It must be a decoy, sir. Several of the escape pods have been jettisoned. Did you find any droids? No, sir. If there were any on board, they must also have jettisoned. Send a scanning crew aboard. I want every part of this ship checked.

I sense something, a presence I've not felt since- Get me a scanning crew in here on the double. There's no one here. Boy, it's lucky you had these compartments. I use them for smuggling. I never thought I'd be smuggling myself in 'em. This is ridiculous. Even if I could take off, I'd never get past the tractor beam.

Damn fool, I knew that you were gonna say that. Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him? The ship's all yours. If the scanners pick up anything, report it immediately. All right, let's go. Hey, down there! Could you give us a hand with this?

TK, do you copy? Take over. We've got a bad transmitter. I'll see what I can do. Between his howling and your blasting everything in sight, it's a wonder the whole station doesn't know we're here.

Bring them on! I'd prefer a straight fight to all this sneakin' around. We've found the computer outlet, sir. Plug in. He should be able to interpret the entire imperial network. He'll try to make the precise location appear on the monitor.

The tractor beam is coupled to the main reactor in seven locations. A power loss at one of the terminals will allow the ship to leave. I don't think you boys can help. I must go alone. Whatever you say. I've done more than I bargained for on this trip already. I want to go with you. Be patient, Luke. Stay and watch over the droids. They must be delivered safely, or other star systems will suffer the same fate as Alderaan. Your destiny lies along a different path from mine.

The Force will be with you always. Argh argh argh! You said it, Chewie. Where did you dig up that old fossil?

Ben is a great man. Yeah, great at getting us into trouble. I didn't hear you give any ideas. Well, anything's better than just hangin' around waiting for 'em to pick us up.

Who do you think He says "I've found her" and keeps repeating "She's here. Princess Leia. The princess? She's here?! Where is she? Oh, no! We've got to do something! The droids belong to her. She's the one in the message. We got to help her. Now look, don't get any funny ideas. The old man wants us to wait right here. But he didn't know she was here. Just find a way back into that detention block.

I'm not going anywhere. They're going to execute her. Look, a few minutes ago, you said you didn't want to just wait here to be captured. Now all you want to do is stay? Marching into the detention area is not what I had in mind. But they're gonna kill her! Better her than me.

She's rich. Rich, powerful. Listen, if you were to rescue her, the reward would be Well, more well than you can imagine. I don't know. I can imagine quite a bit. You'll get it. I better. You will. All right, kid. You better be right about this. What's your plan? I'm gonna put these on you. Han, you Don't worry, Chewie. I think I know what he has in mind. Master Luke, sir, pardon me for asking, but what should R2 and I do if we're discovered here?

Lock the door. And hope they don't have blasters. That isn't very reassuring. I can't see a thing in this helmet.

This is not gonna work. Why didn't you say so before? I did say so before. Where are you taking this Prisoner transfer from Cell Block I wasn't notified.

I'll have to clear it. Look out! He's loose! He'll tear us all apart! I'll get him!

We gotta find out which cell this princess of yours is in. Here it is You go and get her. I'll hold them here. Uh, everything's under control. Situation normal. What happened? Had a slight weapons malfunction, but, uh, everything's perfectly all right now. We're fineWe're all fine here now. Thank you. How are you? We're sending a squad up. Uh, negative, negative! We have aa reactor leak here, uh, now. Give us a few minutes to lock it down. Uh, large leak, very dangerous. Who is this? What's your operating number?

Boring conversation anyway. We're gonna have company! Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper? Oh, the uniform. I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you. You're who? I've got your R2 unit. I'm here with Ben Kenobi. Ben Kenobi?! Where is he? He is here. What makes you think so? A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master. Surely he must be dead by now. Don't underestimate the Force.

The Jedi are extinct. Their fire has gone out of the universe. We have an emergency alert in Detention Block AA Put all sections on alert. Obi-Wan is here. The Force is with him. If you're right, he must not be allowed to escape. Escape is not his plan. I must face him alone.

Get behind me! Watch your left. They went down the cell bay. Can't get out that way. Looks like you managed to cut off our only escape route.

Maybe you'd like it back in your cell, Your Highness. Yes, sir? Are there any other ways out of the cell bay? We've been cut off! What was that? I didn't copy. I said all systems have been alerted to your presence, sir. The main entrance seems to be the only way in or out. All other information on your level is restricted.

Open up in there! There isn't any other way out! I can't hold them off forever! Now what?! This is some rescue! You came in here, and you didn't have a plan for getting out? He's the brains, sweetheart! Well, I didn't- What the hell are you doing? Somebody has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute, flyboy. Get in there! Get in there, you big furry oaf! I don't care what you smell. The Death Star plans are not in the main computer. Where are those transmissions What have you done with those plans?

We intercepted no transmissions. This is a consular ship. We're on a diplomatic mission. If this is a consular ship, where is the ambassador?

Commander, tear this ship apart until you've found those plans, and bring me the passengers! I want them alive! There's one. Set for stun. She'll be all right. Inform Lord Vader we have a prisoner. You're not permitted in there. It's restricted. You'll be deactivated for sure.

Now come out before somebody sees you. I'm not getting in there. I'm going to regret this. There goes another one. Hold your fire. There's no life-forms. It must have short-circuited. Are you sure this thing is safe? Only you could be so bold. The Imperial Senate will not sit still for this. When they hear Don't act so surprised, Your Highness.

You weren't on any mercy mission this time. Several transmissions were beamed to this ship by rebel spies. I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you. I don't know what you're talking about. I'm a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan. You are part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor.Here he comes. The narrow beam swings across rusty metal rocket parts and an array of grotesquely twisted and maimed astro-robots. We'll be destroyed for sure.

What plans? The Force? Luke agrees, although it's obvious he isn't sure why.

Review my other articles. I have always been a very creative person and find it relaxing to indulge in baton twirling. I do fancy reading comics fortunately .
