Synopsis of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Screenplay:

The original screenplay of “Return of the Jedi”, the third and concluding episode of “Star Wars”, the classic sci-fi film saga. Published to coincide with the launch of the remastered films, featuring stills from the production.

The film is set one year after The Empire Strikes Back and was produced by Howard Kazanjian. The Galactic Empire, under the direction of the ruthless Emperor, is constructing a second Death Star in order to crush the Rebel Alliance once and for all. Since the Emperor plans to personally oversee the final stages of its construction, the Rebel Fleet launches a full-scale attack on the Death Star in order to prevent its completion and kill the Emperor. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker, a Jedi apprentice, struggles to bring his father Darth Vader back to the Light Side of the Force.

Derived from George Lucas’s original story, the screenplay was composed by Lawrence Kasdan (who soon afterwards established himself as a director with Body Heat and The Big Chill). This produced a psychologically complex piece of epic storytelling, treasurably enhanced by the verbal jousting – and the affecting romance – between Han Solo and Princess Leia.
