Three years after the destruction of the Death Star, the Rebels abandon their new base in a assault with the Imperial AT-AT Walkers.
Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) escape in the Millennium Falcon. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) follow Obi-Wan Kenobi's (Alec Guinness) command, and Luke receives Jedi training from Master Yoda (Frank Oz, voice). 


The Empire Strikes Back or Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is a worthy sequel. It is sinister but even more involving than the first film of the trilogy, A New Hope: Luke finds out the truth about his father, and we hear the Imperial March for the first time. Fuelled by action, the film is capable of creating such a tension that keeps viewers on the edge of their seat.
The visual effects are really improved. The score is unforgettable. Darth Vader is amazingly played by David Prowse. 


Luke: I can't. It's too big.
Yoda: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.
