Return of the Jedi ★★★½ Star Wars: Episode 6—Return of the Jedi 1983 (PG)

Third film in George Lucas' popular space saga. Against seemingly fearsome odds, Luke Skywalker battles such worthies as Jabba the Hut and heavy-breathing Darth Vader to save his comrades and triumph over the evil Galactic Empire. Han and Leia reaffirm their love and team with C3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Calrissian, and a bunch of furry Ewoks to aid in the annihilation of the Dark Side. The special effects are still spectacular, even the third time around. Sequel to “Star Wars” (1977) and “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980). 132m/C VHS, DVD . Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Billy Dee Williams, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Kenny Baker, Denis Lawson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Sebastian Shaw, Jeremy Bulloch, Toby Philpot; D: Richard Marqruand; W: George Lucas, Lawrence Kasdan; C: Alan Hume; M: John Williams; V: Alec Guinness, Frank Oz. Oscars '83: Visual FX.
