Synopsis

Luke Skywalker embarks on a mission to find out if arch-villain Darth Vader is really his long-lost father, as Vader claimed in the cliff-hanger ending of "The Empire Strikes Back." Along for the ride are Princess Leia, Han Solo and other familiar faces from the first two movies. Jabba the Hut and the furry, adorable Ewoks are just some of the bizarre new creatures they encounter in this third action-packed, special effects-filled installment of the phenomenally popular "Star Wars" series.

Description

The third and final chapter in the wondrous "Star Wars" saga. Luke must save Princess Leia and Han Solo from the clutches of the monstrous Jabba the Hut so they can take on an even more powerful Death Star poised to annihilate the Rebel Alliance. This marks the end of the "middle" trilogy in Lucas' saga. We patiently await the next! Academy Award Nominations: 5, including Original Sound. Academy Awards: Best Visual Effects. **On moratorium as of January 30, 1996**

Notes

Color by Rank. Rated BBFC U by the British Board Film Censors. Estimated budget of $32.5 million. Released in the USA May 25, 1983. Additional distribution company: MH Medien Handels (Germany/Austria/Switzerland -- TV) Additional credits: Arthur Repola, visual effects editor supervisor; Kim Knowlton, animation effects supervisor; Michael Pangrazio, matte artist supervisor; James C. Keefer, animation supervisor; Joe Johnston, animation effects art director; Kit West, mechanical effects supervisor; and Stuart Freeborn, makeup and creature design. The third installment in George Lucas' enormously successful space opera which began in 1977 with "Star Wars" and was followed in 1980 by "The Empire Strikes Back." Intended as a nine-part series, the next installment will reportedly be a prequel to "Star Wars." Like Steven Spielberg's "Indiana Jones" series (for which Lucas wrote the story), "Stars Wars" was inspired by the Saturday matinee serials that Lucas enjoyed as a boy. The "Star Wars" series ushered in a whole new era of high-tech special effects in film, as well as a sci-fi movie craze that spawned countless "Star Wars" imitations. With the billions he raked in from the "Star Wars" films ("Star Wars" was the highest grossing films of all time until the release of "E.T."), George Lucas started the state-of-the-art special effects company Industrial Light & Magic, which produces the effects for numerous films and TV shows, including "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Though directed by Richard Marquand, the director of the television epic "Search for the Nile," George Lucas was constantly present on the set during the making of "Return of the Jedi." Marquand said it was "like directing 'King Lear' with Shakespeare in the next room." Working titles for the film were "Star Wars: Episode 6: Return of the Jedi" and "Star Wars: Episode 6: Revenge of the Jedi."
