As the rebel leaders map their strategy for an attack on the Emperor's new Death Star, Han Solo remains frozen and imprisoned in the desert fortress of Jabba the Hutt, who is also keeping Princess Leia as a slave. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker, now a master of The Force, rescues his friends but cannot become a true Jedi Knight until he wages his own crucial battle against his evil father, Darth Vader, who has sworn to win him over to the Dark Side
