'Return of the Jedi'
The forces of evil, led by Darth Vader and the Emperor, are at it again -- creating a second Death Star. Freelance space traveler Han Solo is still frozen in carbonite and now on display at the fortress -- hangout of Jabba the Hutt. So, Luke Skywalker, whoís on the verge of becoming a true Jedi knight, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, C-3PO and R2-D2 take off for the planet of Tatooine to save Han.
This episode leads to a bigger confrontation between the heroic
rebels and Vaderís army. While Lando and the rebels conduct an
aerial attack on the Death Star, Han, Luke, Leia et al land on the
forested planet of Endor -- source of the Death Starís protective
force field, and residence of those helpful, fuzzy Ewoks. Luke confronts Darth Vader, again, and meets the Emperor. -- Desson Howe
