Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

The Empire begins construction on a new Death Star, larger and more powerful than the last and the Emperor arrives to oversee its final stages of construction.

R2-D2 and C-3PO arrive at Jabba the Hutt's palace on Tatooine, under the guise of 'gifts' to Jabba as a sign of respect from Luke, who is now calling himself a Jedi Knight, to Jabba. Shortly afterwards, a mysterious bounty hunter arrives with Chewbacca as a prisoner and claims the bounty on him. In addition, unbeknownst to him, one of his guards is Lando.

Later that night, the bounty hunter is revealed to be Leia who frees Han from his frozen state but they are caught by Jabba who had seen through her deception. Leia is enslaved by Jabba and made to sit by his side aboard his sailing barge while he prepares to execute the others.

As they are about to be executed by being fed to an enormous creature called a Sarlaac, R2 gives Luke the lightsaber he had been hiding for him and they are able to escape. Leia kills Jabba, strangling him with the chains he had been keeping her prisoner with.

Luke returns to Dagobah to complete his training while the others return to the rebel fleet. There, Luke discovers that Yoda is dying. Yoda and Obi-Wan are not convinced that Luke is ready to face Vader once again. Obi-Wan tries to explain his lie about Luke's father but Luke is still upset. Luke learns that his twin sister has similar potential with the Force and realises this sister is Leia. Luke leaves, returning to the fleet, but not before Yoda dies.

Having learned of the new Death Star, the Rebels plan to destroy it. While under construction, it is protected by an energy shield being generated by the nearby moon, Endor. This shield will have to be disabled before any attack can begin. Han agrees to lead this attack, with Leia, Chewbacca, Luke and the droids while Lando leads the attack in space with the Falcon.

Upon arrival at Endor, Han's team is captured by the local inhabitants, Ewoks, small bear like people, with primitive technology. The Ewoks agree to help, believing that C-3PO is a god. Luke tells Leia that they are brother and sister, and she admits that she somehow always knew. However, Luke realises that he must face Vader and turns himself in. Vader, in turn, turns Luke over to the Emperor.

The Rebel attack forces attack the shield generator on the ground and the Death Star itself, but the Emperor informs Luke that this was his plan - to lure the rebels in to a desperate assault and wipe them out. A huge force of Imperial Stormtroopers arrive on the ground to ambush Han and his team and an enormous fleet of Imperial Star Destroyers prevents the rebel fleet from leaving. Worse, the Death Star itself is fully armed and operational.

However, the Ewoks attack the Stormtroopers allowing Han to destroy the shield generator. In the meantime, the Emperor tries to tempt Luke in to trying to kill him, knowing this would turn Luke to the Dark Side of the Force. Luke almost gives in but Vader stops him and they fight once again, but this time Luke is much stronger, his feelings for his friends and his sister giving him strength.

With the shield down, Lando and the rest of the rebel attack fighters move in on the Death Star, flying within it through its unfinished structure, but the Death Star begins targeting and destroying the rebel fleet, one ship at a time.

Luke defeats Vader, cutting off his hand but then throws down his own weapon, refusing to kill him. The Emperor attacks Luke, using the force to create lightning from his fingers, nearly killing him before Vader intervenes, refusing to allow his son to die and throwing the Emperor down a reactor shaft. However, the Emperor's lightning destroys the life support equipment in his suit that Vader needs to stay alive.

Lando reaches the centre of the Death Star and destroys a critical reactor, causing a massive overload that starts to bring the station down.

Luke tries to escape the collapsing station with the dying Vader, but Vader can go no further. He asks that Luke remove his helmet so he can see his son with his own eyes, telling him that he has saved him before finally dying.

The galaxy learns of the destruction of the Death Star and the death of the Emperor, causing huge celebrations all over the galaxy.
