The Empire Falls...
As Rebel leaders map their strategy for an all-out attack on the Emperor's newer, bigger Death Star. Han Solo remains frozen in the cavernous desert fortress of Jabba the Hutt, the most loathsome outlaw in the universe, who is also keeping Princess Leia as a slave girl. Now a master of the Force, Luke Skywalker rescues his friends, but he cannot become a true Jedi Knight until he wages his own crucial battle against Darth Vader, who has sworn to win Luke over to the dark side of the Force.

This is the Special Edition that messed up a great movie. From the overly goofy musical number in the Jaba Palace scene that makes the scene less serious now. To the dull musical score in the end that replaced the original score. Lucas just shouldn't have messed with something that didn't messing with.
I mean I never had a problem with Ewoks. Especially when Jar-Jar is far worse. The film was a childhood favorite of mine, the way it was. Was the one I watched over and over again until I realized how great Empire was when I was older.
What was in my opinion a solid film, Lucas made weaker once he messed with it in 1997. Now he forces this version on us as the only version available on DVD or digital.
