After rescuing Han Solo from the palace of Jabba the Hutt, the rebels attempt to destroy the second Death Star, while Luke struggles to make Vader return from the dark side of the Force.
Despite being a Jedi, Luke shows several traits that could lure him to the Dark Side, such as force choking, getting angry at Vader after the latter threatens to turn Leia to the Dark Side, and wearing black.
Command station, this is ST321, code clearance blue. We're starting our approach; deactivate the security shield.
During the Rancor scene, when we get a full frontal shot of the beast as Luke tries to find a way out, you can see the puppeteer's blue-clothed arm operating the Rancor on its left side (right for the viewer). It isn't that easily noticeable, since it is dark like the surroundings, but its color makes it stand out.
To compensate for the longer credits, later versions of the film like the special edition and DVD release extend the piece of musical score that plays over the credits.
