SYNOPSIS
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.
