Movie Description

The sixth film (chronologically) in the "Star Wars" franchise is "Return of the Jedi," features the reconstruction of the Death Star, as well as the "humanizing" of Anakin Skywalker, aka Darth Vader. Richard Marquand directed George Lucas and Lawrence Kasdan's screenplay.

Emperor Palatine, Vader's ruthless successor as leader of the Galactic Empire, but his ego leads to his death from an all-out attack from the Rebel Alliance Fleet. Luke Skywalker, seeking to make amends with his true father, spares no effort in trying to convince Vader to abandon the "Dark Side." He fails, but fatherly pride over-rules when Luke is nearly killed by Palatine and Vader responds by killing the evil Sith. Anakin Skywalker is seriously wounded during the skirmish, but not before his dying words lead to yet another "game-changing" revelation: Luke and Princess Leia are actually brother and sister.

Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher reprise their roles, while Sir Alec Guiness makes his third (and final) appearance as Luke's Jedi Master spirit, Obi- Wan Kenobi.
