Considered the most morally and emotionally complex of the original Star Wars
trilogy, THE EMPIRE STRIKE BACK continues creator George Lucas's epic saga where
STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE left off. The Rebel Forces--which include young adventurer
Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), rogue pilot Han Solo (Harrison Ford), and the
beautiful but seemingly humorless Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher)--have been
successful in destroying the Evil Empire's Death Star. However, the Empire's top
commander, the terrifying Lord Darth Vader (played by David Prowse, voiced by
James Earl Jones), is scanning the galaxy for the Rebels' secret location. After
a visually stunning showdown on the ice planet Hoth, the Rebels are forced to
flee, and Luke separates from Han and Leia. Masterful storytelling weaves
multiple, archetypal plotlines that pit Vader against Han and Leia as he
desperately attempts to capture Luke for political--and, secretly,
personal--reasons. Luke, meanwhile, finds himself under the tutelage of the tiny
but powerful old Jedi Master Yoda, who teaches him the ways of the Force and
warns the impatient but talented student against the threat of the Dark Side.
Greek tragedy meets a philosophical hero's journey in EMPIRE, a remarkable
sci-fi epic in which the performances are as powerful as the spectacular special
effects. In 1997 a special edition of the film was digitally remastered with
enhanced visual and sound effects. Several scenes--including the one in which
Luke Skywalker encounters a deadly Wampa on Hoth--were reedited with more detail
while other scenes--such as the one on Cloud City--were added for the rerelease.
