Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back by Irvin Kershner, 1980 (PG)
George Lucas's epic saga continues as Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), in hopes of defeating the evil Galactic Empire, learns the ways of the Jedi from aging master Yoda. But Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones) is more determined than ever to capture Luke. Meanwhile, rebel leader Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), cocky Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Chewbacca, and droids C-3PO and R2-D2 are thrown into various stages of capture, betrayal and despair.
Probably my favorite Star Wars, it is funny, the action is really entertaining, the suspense and revelation (of course now everybody know it). And watching it all over again was a treat.
with Mark Hamill, James Earl Jones, Harrison Ford (Blade Runner, Morning Glory), Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Frank Oz, Alec Guinness, Jeremy Bulloch, Denis Lawson (Perfect Sense), John Ratzenberger (Cars)
