The Battle of Yavin is one of the greatest space battles in cinematic history. For those unfamiliar with the Star Wars Universe, it is an epic battle where we witnessed the destruction of the first Death Star – the Galactic Empire’s (bad guys!) ultimate weapon. Built to destroy entire civilisation, the Death Star is a menacing weapon of mass destruction that threatens the survival of the Rebel Alliance (good guys!).
Moving forward without geeking out on the detail, the Rebellion got their hands on the Death Star plans and discovers its only weakness: the thermal exhaust port. Luke Skywalker, the greatest Jedi of all time–let’s debate–took advantage of this vulnerability and blasted the Death Star to pieces with the help of the Force. Hurray!
