After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
Before filming began, it was discovered that all of Darth Vader's lightsaber props had either been lost or stolen. Thus, one of Luke Skywalker's "stunt" saber props from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) had to be quickly cannibalized into a "Vader-esque" saber for this film.
Command station, this is ST321, code clearance blue. We're starting our approach; deactivate the security shield.
As C-3PO is trying to get his friends untied, Chewbacca pokes his head onto the set before he is cut loose. (Letterboxed version only?)
This is the only Star Wars film in which Denis Lawson's first name is spelled correctly in the credits.
