Synopsis: 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.
