Fans lined up days in advance for the premiere of this hotly anticipated follow-up to Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
Three years after the destruction of the Death Star, Imperial forces continue to pursue the Rebels. After the Rebellion’s defeat on the ice planet Hoth, Luke Skywalker journeys to the planet Dagobah to train with Jedi Master Yoda, who has lived in hiding since the fall of the Republic. In an attempt to convert Luke to the dark side, Darth Vader lures young Skywalker into a trap at Cloud City. In the midst of a fierce lightsaber duel with the Sith Lord, Luke faces the startling revelation that the Vader is in fact his father.
Written by George Lucas, and directed Irvin Kershner, this film stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Alec Guinness, and Frank Oz as the voice of Yoda.
