Angry Birds Star Wars Path of the Jedi Level J-1 Walkthrough

Welcome to our walkthroughs for Angry Birds Star Wars Path of the Jedi. This episode is available for the PC version of the app at no additional cost and as a $1.99 USD in-app purchase for iOS and Android devices (via Google Play).

Update: It has been brought to our attention that, for iOS and Android, “Path of the Jedi” can be unlocked for free. To do so, the user must 3-star all available levels. (In v1.0.0, this means 3-starring all levels of both Tatooine and Death Star.) We are not aware of this will change in the future.

Our strategy level J-1 is to fling Luke towards the edge of the top most metal beam, activating the lightsaber at the last second. With a little luck this should cause the structure to collapse and blow the TNT, wiping out all the pigs.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

I pass all the levels, but not with 3 star. For the first two world i have collected 182 stars. The return of the Jedi world is locked, only the first level is open. When i try to purchase, i can’t connect to iTunes store …

Getting that TNT to blow isn’t all that easy. It sure acts like it wants to get blown, but the collapse all too often stops, then the structure resettles. I only managed it a couple of times, but I managed it, using the video method.

@TruckDriver, hey, wassup truckie, man, I gotta tell you this sure has been a messed up first episode, even doing it the video way has taken me over an hour just to 3 star it, everything that could possibly go wrong, did and kept giving me increments of 200 to 300 points at a time.

BTW, I haven’t seen your name or Kathy’s at Tatooine or Deathstar Leaderboards, you should have started with those first, they were far easier than this hairy planet. I picked me up another Top Score at SW 2-5, this one has thus far lasted 72 hours, hope it lasts for at least a week, well, good luck to you.

” We are not aware of whether this was a conscious decision on the part of Rovio, or if this will change in the future” – When I finished three starring Death Star, a screen with Luke bird and his saber appeared, with a nice message that said (to the effect) that for completing the levels, Path of the Jedi had been unlocked. Such a screen isn’t a fluke, it was programmed in. So, I’m guessing it was a conscious decision. It makes sense (and is quite clever) if you think about it. The casual player who doesn’t obsess over three stars (hard to believe, I know) would probably fork over the $1.99 for the Jedi levels (which are a challenge, to be certain) instead of taking the time to three star the other two, to ‘earn’ it. Kudos Rovio!

Just to clarify why I worded it this way: I never saw the screen myself, as I purchased the episode (to make videos, obviously). I was reporting based on what other people had reported, and the information you included here was not said previously. I greatly appreciate it.

For the level…i use two birds, the first aimed at the slanted wood, what until luke have gone through it then activate the lightsaber…it will destroy most of the wooden structure supporting the first structure…
Than aim the 2nd bird slightly above the tnt, the lightsaber will touch the tnt and explode…

I’ve found it’s more likely to get a one-birder by aiming just under the top metal beam, going through the pig and sabring the wooden blocks to his right.

Some observations. I finished level with 1 Luke but different ways! Worst thing – twice in a row I was so fast to restart :(. That was during Lob Way – trying to rich the same point like at film but by high arc. So I mentioned – twice same area (NEAR deccribed point) and wrongly I was thinking thats the end. Tap the pause, next restart and seen collapsing construction :(. No way back. At this moment I couldn’t replay this way. Mayby latter.

Film Way after some attempt – I finished it too.
Under the top Concret Board Way – go trought pig / wood area, next activate a sabre and smash one of wooden blocks betwen this concret (gray) ones. Low score but a hair over 62K.
Flat Roof Way Fly higher then on film. Sabre point – around top pig. Sabre opened wooden roof and Luke or Big pig rolled down on TNT. Things collapse.

Problem is – some Path of Yedi levels are not so easy to be repeated.

Uck! One of the most devilish levels in any version of Angry Birds, IMHO. Hundreds of attempts trying all the various ways listed above to no avail (and completely random amounts of damage) before at long last getting a three-star clear following the method in the video (although the collapse pattern looked nothing like the one in the video). My only advice is keep trying!

Young Jedi, this level is easy to complete, but hard to master.

66650 on a 1-birder:

I call this the “split the difference” strategy, because you must fling Luke between the top horizontal metal plank and the one below it. You need to open the seam where the pig is and still have enough momentum to push the horizontal wooden blocks in tower 3 to the right.Hit this seam just right and everything to the left of tower 3 falls left and gets the pigs while the wooden block from tower 3 falls right onto the TNT, destroying the pig and the right side of the level.

30k bonus for 3 Lukes. :D

For anyone frustrated in attempting to emulate the walk-thru, if you are using the new and improved Luke sabre, it won’t work that way anymore. The elongated sword takes out an integral part that makes the whole thing work with the short sabre. FYI

By zlyeptitsy

Yes, upon reflection, that explains why I was having so much trouble three-starring the level. Level J-31, which similarly requires a delicate touch, also becomes much more difficult with the increased destructive power of the green light saber.

By stockyirish

This is a pretty hard level to three star, but I did it, after numerous attempts, using 2 birds and getting 62810 points. I used the video method but it didn’t make the leftmost structure fall or kill that leftmost pig. A second Luke right at the pig (adding a saber chop to break more stuff) got me my 3 stars.

I hate to make anyone angry but I found this level quite easy. I just aimed high up to the vertical wood plank, between the two horizontal cement ones and the key was to activate Luke’s lightsaber right as he gets to the pig, BEFORE he makes contact to the wood so that you cut a path. He will continue right on and push through the two side-by-side vertical wooden planks and drop right on the tnt. If Luke doesn’t land on the tnt, one of the pushed out wood pieces will. Very repeatable ;-) The whole right side will blow up, meanwhile the left structure will push leftward with lots of debris points.

By AHill4168 (@ahill4168)Score: 65,570

This is the method that finally worked for me. I think the key to getting the right side to fall and get the TNT, no matter the method, is to fire Luke with as much (pardon the pun) force as possible.

The left side can be destabilised by the explosion, which makes the left pig fall down. All in all, a very tricky episode. Keep trying, and don’t be afraid to wait a bit to see if anything else will fall.

Has anyone tried to do PotJ after the update to 1.1.1 with planet Hoth? Is it unlocked for free after 3-starring Tatooine and Death Star, or do you now have to 3-star Hoth as well?

I was so fortunate as to lose my progress. For some reason, I had an adjustment to my account and the seller (i.e. Google, Amazon, etc.) thought I would no longer want to have the license.

I like AB, which was fun trying to 3-star all the levels which really took a long time…..but come on, that’s like 154 levels now for AB Star Wars.

I finally found an easier way. Send the first bird into the vertical wooden block that the pig is in front of (just under the steel one the video shows you to shoot at). Activate the light saber just before you hit it. If you do it right the bird will sail into the two wooden blocks just in front of the TNT taking them out and detonating the TNT. If this doesn’t clear everything, shoot the next bird at whatever is left. I was able to get this with one bird but you can still 3 star using two birds.
