"Another Happy Landing" refers to a quote uttered by the character Obi-Wan Kenobi in the film Star Wars: Episode III-- Revenge of the Sith. This piece of dialogue has been the frequent subject of jokes via image macros and YouTube remixes, emphasizing actor Ewan McGregor's speedy line reading.
"Another Happy Landing" is a line from the film Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith, released May 19th, 2005. In the film, the character Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) crashes his ship onto the planet of Coruscant. After failing to land the ship properly, he turns to his shipmates, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) and "Chancellor Palpatine"/memes/the-tragedy-of-darth-plagueis-the-wise (Ian McDiarmid), and quips, "Another happy landing." Since being uploaded to YouTube, the clip has been viewed more than 28,000 times.
One of the earliest iterations of the meme came from the Facebook group The Planet Core-core on March 1st, 2016, which posted an image of Obi-Wan underneath a Vox article about astronaut Scott Kelly (shown below). On April 14th, 2016, the Facebook account Happy Landings-core launched, which within a year, boasts more than 61,600 likes and 62,400 followers.

The line had a reputation following the film's release, but it's popularity seemed to peak with the the YouTube video "Star Wars But Everytime A Ship Lands Obi Wan says Another Happy Landing," which YouTuber Triton Tributes uploaded on January 6th, 2017. Within five months, the clip had over 420,000 views. The English newspaper Express wrote an article about the video and it's sudden popularity.
