The plot thickens when the heroes fall prisoners of the evil Hutt, who decide to keep Leia as a slave while condemning Luke to be eaten by a Rancor. Finally, the team manages to escape, allowing Luke to return to Dagobah to complete his Jedi training. While the princess, Han Solo and the others goes to the moon of Endor, a satellite inhabited by the small Ewoks, a creatures that don't hesitate to lend their support to their visitors.

Trivia

Carrie Fisher complained about her wardrobe in the first two films of the original trilogy saying that the outfits were so long, you could not tell "she was a woman". The result of these complaints was the little outfit that she wore as Jabba's slave in ''Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi''.

Yoda was not in the original film, but George Lucas decided to add him when he realized it was the right character to confirm that Vader is Luke's father.

Some team members suspected of leaking information to the press, received a fake script in which it was stated that Lando Calrissian was the last hope of the Jedi, a fact which finally appeared in the media.
