Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi

Return Of The Jedi

1983

Richard Marquand
Director
20th Century Fox Film Corporation
Distributor
Lucasfilm
Production Company

The final installment in the series, which was originally going to be titled Revenge Of The Jedi, sees Luke Skywalker first rescuing Han Solo from the clutches of Jabba The Hutt on Tatooine, then once again confronting Darth Vader in a final attempt to bring order and stability to the galaxy. Meanwhile, Han and Leia travel to the forest moon of Endor to deactivate an energy shield which will allow the Rebels to attack the reconstructed Death Star once and for all.

George Lucas has twice tweaked the original version of the movie: firstly a Special Edition released in 1997 and then again 2005 (with a notable change, replacing the original hologram of Anakin Skywalker played by Sebastian Shaw to that of one Hayden Christensen).

For the other five films in the STAR WARS series:
Star Wars Ep. I: The Phantom Menace (1999)
Star Wars Ep. II: Attack Of The Clones (2002)
Star Wars Ep. III: Revenge Of The Sith (2005)

Star Wars Ep. IV: A New Hope (1977)
Star Wars Ep. V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
