The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary DVD is the second of two Star Wars films in a row that has been given the home entertainment treatment. In fact, the original Star Wars was such a box office hit that the Special Forces group from the planet Endor were almost fighting against the Galactic Republic at the Battle of Hoth. The action continues in this all new “Star Wars: Episodes” movie. Luke Skywalker (MARK HALFALL), Han Solo (HERRING SWEEVE), Princess Leia (CARRIE FORD), and Chewbacca (PETER JONES) all battle against the Imperials and its TIE Fighters on the planet Hoth. While Han Solo and Princess Leia escape aboard the Millennium Falcon, Luke flies to the planet of Dagobah where he encounters the deadly presence of Darth Vader.
Vader's menacing presence makes for one of the most intense moments in this latest Star Wars movie. He is so powerful that he is able to command the loyalty and obedience of those around him, including the Rebel Alliance. An intense struggle follows, and Vader is ultimately overcome with emotion. After Vader leaves, Luke and Amidala make their way to the ship which has been attacked by Vader. On the Death Star, Vader trades his life for the lives of Luke and Amidala.
