Without actually watching yet, I'm going to say no. Can't dodge a beam of light. Star Wars is fiction.

And more importantly, why would you bother? A laser can't even penetrate your navigational shield!

To be fair, I've never taken "dodging" energy blasts in scifi as literally seeing the incoming beam and getting out of the way. More generally taking "evasive action" to make you harder to hit, not jumping aside from specific volleys.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Imagine having the technology to produce light-sabers and only using it to fight duels. :lmao:
