The impending release of Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker has the Star Wars fanbase abuzz with excitement. Add to that a slew of anticipated series headed to Disney+ this winter, and there’s lots of exciting Star Wars content on the horizon.

While we wait for the end of the Skywalker Saga, here are some Star Wars memes to help you remember some of the best moments from the series.

Funny Star Wars memes

From ultra-niche jokes to goofy jabs at characters, dialogue, and storylines, the internet has been pumping out funny Star Wars memes for years. There is no shortage of material to work with, either. Dozens of video games, books, comics, series, and films set in the expansive Star Wars universe all provide ammunition for clever puns, silly jokes, and meta references.

So without further ado, here are the best Star Wars memes the internet has to offer.

Star Wars prequel trilogy

Anakin is so very easy to ridicule. The thoroughly mockable lines and reviled characters in the prequel trilogy provided plenty of ammunition for meme creators. They take aim at everything from Anakin’s slow fall to the dark side to Order 66 and, of course, sand.
