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.
At one point during the battle on Endor, Leia turns towards a Scout Walker and shoots a man who is either standing on or leaning out of the top. This man is rumored to be none other than the director, Richard Marquand, who also did the voice for the interrogator ... ...
Command station, this is ST321, code clearance blue. We're starting our approach; deactivate the security shield.
When Vader is watching the Emperor attack Luke, his helmet is very dusty and what looks like streaks of finger marks can be seen on the helmet. In the next shot, just before Vader picks up the Emperor, his helmet has been cleaned and is shiny again.
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.
