Aka: Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back
Fleeing the evil Galactic Empire, the rebels abandon their new base on Hoth. Princess Leia, Han Solo and the droids R2-D2 and C-3P0 escape in the damaged Millenium Falcon, but are later captured by Lord Darth Vader on Bespin. Skywalker, meanwhile, follows Ben Kenobi's posthumous command and receives Jedi training by Yoda on Dagobah. Will Skywalker manage to rescue his friends from the dark lord?
The second entry in George Lucas' Star Wars trilogy finds Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the green-as-grass hero from the first film, now a seasoned space warrior. Luke's Star Wars cohorts Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) are likewise more experienced in the ways and means of battling the insidious Empire, as represented by the brooding Darth Vader (body of David Prowse, voice of James Earl Jones). And, of course, "The Force," personified by the ghost of Luke's mentor Ben Kenobi (Alec Guinness), is with them all. Retreating from Vader's minions, Luke ends up, at first, on the Ice Planet H...
oth, and then the tropical Dagobah. Here he makes the acquaintance of the gnomish Yoda (voice of Frank Oz), whose all-encompassing wisdom comes in handy during the serial-like perils of the rest of the film. Before the film's open-ended climax, we are introduced to the apparently duplicitous Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) and are let in on a secret that profoundly affects both Luke and his arch-enemy, Vader. Many viewers consider this award-winning film the best of the Star Wars movies, and its special-effects bonanza was pure gold at the box office.
Luke Skywalker and his loyal band team up to do battle with Empire's forces who decide to enact revenge. Yet, Luke is empowered by the Jedi master Yoda in learning to master the Force, something he will need when he meets Darth Vader in a startling confrontation.
Darth Vader zet zich in om de rebellie tegen Het Keizerrijk de kop in te drukken. De rebellen hebben een basis op de ijsplaneet Hoth. Wanneer keizerlijke troepen arriveren om de rebellen te vernietigen vluchten Han Solo en Princess Leia naar Cloud City, waar ze gevangen worden genomen door Vader. Luke Skywalker reist af naar de planeet Dagobah, waar hij door de Jedi-meester Yoda in de Force getraind wordt.

Who needs a delicious house when you can have a delicious Imperial Walker?The Empire's siege on the Rebel base on the icy planet of Hoth in " The Empire Strikes Back " would've made for a much more tasty endeavor if the At-ATs (All Terrain Assault Transport) had been made of gingerbread rather than cold, hard steel. Just think about how that one that was undone by the Snowspeeder's cable line being wrapped around its legs would've burst into several million pieces of gingerbread as it collapsed onto the snow.
