Watched Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) from Disney+

Directed by Richard Marquand. With Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams. After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the Rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy the second Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Darth Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.

Continuing the series in chronological order. Saw this with the monkey tonight. Surprised that she wasn’t scared at all by it.

Something that I noticed on this screening that I hadn’t before: In Empire, Leia tells Han, “I love you,” and he replies, “I know.” At the end of this episode when threatened with death, he tells her “I love you,” and she replies, “I know.” The parallelism of this is subtle but fantastic!

Rating: ★★★★
