Characters: Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrizian, Chewbacca, R2D2, C3P0, Han Solo, Leia Organa, Darth Vader ( Anakin Skywalker), Yoda, Emporer Palpatine, Jaba the Hutt, Boba Fett and Emperor Palpatine.
Our heroes have returned to Luke’s home planet of Tatooine to rescue Han from the clutches of Jaba the Hutt. Luke has rebuilt his lightsaber from parts found in Obi Won’s hut. Lando has already infiltrated Jaba’s palace to help Luke from the inside.
Luke has sent R2 and 3P0 on ahead to deilver a message and gift to Jaba.
“Greetings exaulted one. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight and friend to Captain Solo. I seek an audience with your greatness to bargain for Solo’s life. I know that you are powerful mighty Jaba and that your anger with Solo must be equally powerful. With your wisdom I’m sure that we can work out an arrangement that will be mutually beneficial and enable us to avoid any unpleasant confrontation. As a token of my goodwill I present to you a gift, (motions towards R2 and 3P0) these two droids. (3P0: what did he say.) Both are hard working and will serve you well.”
3P0 thinks R2 has played the wrong message. Jaba’s right hand man informs Jaba that Luke is a Jedi and that he should not bargain with him. Jaba will not bargain because he does not want to give up his favorite decoration. He does take the droids though. R2 will serve on Jaba’s sail barge while 3P0 will become a translator in the main throne room.
Later that day while Jaba is having a party, Leia, disguised as a Bounty Hunter, brings in Chewbacca for the bounty. Jaba offers 25,000 but Leia demands 50,000. They come to an agreement of 35,000. Chewbacca is taken away.
Later on that evening, Leia sneaks back into the throne room to try and free Han from the cryogenic freeze. She succeeds and after explaining a few things to Han, helps him up. They start to head for the door when they are stopped by the sound of Jaba laughing. Jaba had apparently been watching the whole time. He sends Han to prison while he tells the guards to bring Leia to him. He seems quite taken by her.
The next day, Luke comes in. After force choking a couple of guards he makes his way to the throne room. He easily manipulates Jaba’s right hand man, he comes in to Jaba’s throne room. He tries to work his powers on Jaba but Jaba won’t break so easily. Before he knows it he’s in the pit below the floor. Now he has to face off against a really big and ugly monster. Now he has to fight for his life as he tries to outsmart the monster. He succeeds but now he has just gotten himself into bigger trouble.
Now he finds himself back in the throne room. Only this time, he is in shackles and so are Han and Chewbacca. Jaba is apparently furious about losing the creature bellow and wants Luke and the others to pay for what has happened.
Now our heroes are on a barge heading for the pit of cacoom, the nesting place of the old powerful Sarlac. Han’s vision has gone from seeing black to bright. Luke tells him that there’s nothing to see. He used to live here.
They stop over the pit and Luke is moved to the plank. Jaba offers them a chance to plea but Han doesn’t want to. Luke tells Jaba that this is his last chance. Free them or die. Jaba doesn’t bite and now Luke gets to show off. Luke steps off the plank, then grabs the edge, uses the leverage to pull himself back up then somersaults in mid air and lands on the barge, right where he left. He lifts his hand and his saber lands right in his hand, activating. Luke starts to fight off the bad guys while Chewbacca frees Han. Luke destroys the sail barge and after grabbing the droids our heroes are off to the rendezvous point. Luke heads back to Degobah while Leia, Han, Chewbacca and Lando head back to the rendezvous point.
Back on Degobah Yoda and Luke have a conversation. Yoda confirms that Vader is Luke’s father. He also tells Luke that he has a sister. With that Yoda dies.
Outside Luke is helping R2 with some things on his X-Wing. A holo or Obi Wan Kenobi comes up to him and Luke gets on him for not telling Luke the truth. Luke also finds out that Leia is his sister.
He makes it back to the rendezvous point and with the gang back together now it’s time to finish off the Empire once and for all. Luke and the others go to the forest moon of Endore to destroy the shield generator. Luke senses that Vader is near and after telling Leia that they are related, he goes to meet him.
Vader takes him to Emporer Palpatine. Now Luke must put all he has learned into play. Will he chose good or evil. To find out get Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi on DVD.
