Qui-Gon Jinn wished Anakin Skywalker “May the Force be with you” shortly before the start of the Boonta Eve Classic. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi used the phrase throughout his life, including at the end of his message sent through the Jedi beacon, warning any possible survivors of Order 66 that the Galactic Republic had turned against the Jedi and that those who remained should not return to the Jedi Temple. He later told Luke Skywalker, “The Force will be with you. Always” during the Battle of Yavin. Skywalker would later wished Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca “May the Force be with You” before they started their search to locate Boba Fett and to rescue their comrade Han Solo from being frozen in carbonite.
The phrase “May the Force be with you” originated in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and has continued to be part of Star Wars stories ever since.
