Star Wars (Special Edition) is the definitive version of the 1977 classic science fiction blockbuster, written and directed by George Lucas, and featuring all new special effects that complete Lucas' vision as he originally saw it. Taking place in a galactic empire lorded over by an oppressive senate which is being challenged by a popular resistance movement. The government forces have captured Princess Leia, a rebel leader, and a motley group is attempting to rescue her. These include a farm boy named Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, a survivor of the Jedi (a once-powerful brotherhood of warriors sworn to uphold good against evil), Han Solo, a cynical and mercenary space pilot, Chewbacca, an abominable snowman-type monster and two robots. One of these talks in an old-fashioned upper-class British accent, the other only in a series of squeaks and whistles. The government is also attempting to destroy the planet that serves as their base using a 'death star' that can destroy whole planets.moreless
