The bad news is that Solo, together with Luke Skywalker Mark Hamill and Princess Leia Carrie Fisher, is prisoner to the grotesque Jabba the Hutt.

The next task is to rid the galaxy of Darth Vader body by David Prowse, voice by James Earl Jones and the Emperor Ian McDiarmid, now in command of a new, under-construction Death Star. On the forest moon Endor, the good guys enlist the help of a feisty bunch of bear-like creatures called the Ewoks in their battle against the Empire.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The third film in the original Star Wars trilogy, Return of the Jedi 1983 completes the story that begins with 1999's The Phantom Menace and attempts -- not entirely successfully -- to tie up all the loose ends. For its initial DVD release in 2004, producer George Lucas outraged some fans by digitally substituting the image of Hayden Christensen playing the young Darth Vader for British actor Sebastian Shaw, who originally was shown as the badly disfigured villain under the black helmet. This was one of several changes Lucas made to have the earlier Star Wars movies conform to the six-film saga. Of course, he had also enhanced Return's special-effects scenes in 1997 for a theatrical, VHS, and laserdisc re-release. This Limited Edition, in addition to including the 2004 DVD cut, offers the original 1983 version on a bonus disc, enabling nostalgic fans to enjoy the same Jedi they saw in theaters more than 20 years ago. Enhanced or not, this film isn't as good as the previous two. It was designed to appeal to very young viewers, what with the generous amount of footage allotted to those cuddly little Ewoks. But let's not kid ourselves: if you're a Star Wars fan, you have to have it. And being able to choose between enhanced and un-enhanced versions has to count for something.
All Movie Guide
Considered by some a mild failure after the tantalizingly unresolved and morally complicated The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi nonetheless was a gigantic box-office hit and a beloved conclusion to the trilogy that would change science fiction filmmaking -- and, indeed, modern mythology -- forever. Overrun by furry Ewoks, the sixth episode in the planned nine-part story represented George Lucas' turn toward kiddie sensibilities, which he would continue in force with the much-reviled Jar Jar Binks character in Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Still, with C3PO constantly getting himself into slapstick jams that inspired endless doomsday whining, the saga had always included silly bursts of comic relief, and the Ewoks only furthered that trend. Paradoxically, Jedi is in some ways the most adult film of the series, delving into the dangerous morass of Luke Skywalker's mounting hatred, including images of rage and emotional torture to rival those of Empire. The improving special effects were the true stars of the third installment, among them a memorable Tatooine clash with Jabba the Hutt's minions, a breathtaking speeder bike chase through the trees, and the climactic battles with the Ewoks vs. the walking battle droids and the Millennium Falcon vs. the rebuilt Death Star. Of course, more soap-opera style revelations continued to reinforce the grandeur of the epic story line. Often thought of as the least effective of the original three Star Wars movies, Jedi's inferiority is relative, to say the least. Lucas' trilogy created such a vast empire of devoted fans that any chance to see laser blasts and light sabers sent them flocking to the multiplexes, instantly forgiving the sometimes hammy dialogue and overly theatrical acting for the opportunity to absorb more of the magic.

    Excellent Movie

    With the completion of the prequels, the entire Star Wars Saga comes together - finishing strong with the Return of the Jedi. I am a big fan of the original trilogy in its original form. I grew up watching VHS tapes of the originals and there is a great nostalgic feeling I associate with them. But there is one edit in the enhanced version that I really enjoy: Hayden Christensen being featured as Annakin Skywalker. This ties the prequel trilogy with the original trilogy and demonstrates that the entire story of the Star Wars Saga is Annakin's story.
    Great movie, but it could have been better without the Ewoks. I think the final battle would have been real cool on Kashyyyk with the Wookies aiding the Alliance.

    The Best DVD

    This is a one of a kind, it really is. It has the 2004 DVD release and also the original 1983 theatrical version of 'Resturn Of The Jedi'. It has been cleaned up and restored, and is in 5.1 surround sound, both versions have this. Even the original. It seems Lucasfilm have changed their mind and cleaned up the originals and gave them the best DVD treatment. Also, there are a few more extra extra's. The extra's include a new photo gallery, and a one hour documentary on the original version. Also, a new commentary.!

    5 stars for the movie- NOT for the NON-ANAMORPHIC transfer

    "Frank Ford's" "review" notwithstanding, the official press release from Lucasfilm has stated that the 'bonus' disc containing the original 1983 version of Return of the Jedi will NOT be anamorphic, but a non-anamorphic transfer from an old laserdisc master. Hopefully, they'll get on the ball over at Lucasfilm and fix this mess before September 12th. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    WOW, YOU HAVE TO GET THIS!

    I have gotten my copy of Return Of The Jedi DVD, original and special edition in one DVD release. This is very worth getting. I was not expecting the nice quality in the release, but the original version is cleaned up and restored and the sound is terriffic. The original version is on the second disc, while the 2004 version is on the first disc. There is a 2004 commentary on the first disc and there is a newely recorded commentary on the original version on the second disc. There is also a very detailed documentary, over an hour long about the original versio on the second disc. I was surprised by the release, because I was hearing that the original versions were not going to be cleaned up, so I was shocked to see it has been cleaned up. THIS IS A GREAT RELEASE!
