Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi was the final installment of what was referred to in the seventies as the trilogy. In modern times with the release of the Star Wars prequels it is considered the sixth film. Either way it is considered the current final film in the Star Wars franchise and as such ties up many lose ends. It stars Mark Hamilton, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher reprising their roles respectively as Luke, Han Solo, and Princess Leia.
The film opens at Jabba the Hutt's palace where Luke is attempting to rescue Han Solo who has been frozen by Jabba. Before too long it is clear that Luke, Leia, C3PO, RD-D2, Chewbacca, and Lando are all in on the escape and soon the group is off to help the Rebel Alliance. The Emperor has built a new Death Star and is seeking to destroy the Rebel Alliance once and for all.
