A LONG TIME AGO IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY . . .

"It is a dark time for the Rebellion. Although the Death Star has been destroyed, Imperial Troops have driven the Rebel forces from their hidden base and pursued them across the galaxy."

INTERIOR: GANTRY--OUTSIDE CONTROL ROOM--REACTOR SHAFT

Luke moves along the railing and up to the control room. Vader lunges at him and Luke immediately raises his lit sword to meet Vader's.

VADER: If you only knew the power of the dark side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
LUKE: He told me enough! He told me you killed him.
VADER: No. I am your father. Search your feelings. You know it to be true.

*****
Even the best actors, the most talented director, and the most amazing special effects can't make a great movie without a superb story to build on. Now here is the complete screenplay of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back--the second chapter in the world-famous Star Wars Trilogy.

The action intensifies with the pitched battle between the Imperial forces and the Rebel squad led by Luke Skywalker on the ice planet Hoth . . . Luke's training in the force by the ancient master Yoda . . . Solo's capture by his sinister nemesis, bounty hunter Boba Fett . . . And the stunning showdown between Luke and Darth Vader.

Fully illustrated with original storyboard art--and featuring an introduction especially written for this edition by director/producer Irvin Kershner--this definitive volume is a must for every Star Wars library.
