Product Description

Amazon.ca

The high-energy, special-effects-laden conclusion to George Lucas's ambitious Star Wars trilogy delivers the final confrontation between Luke Skywalker (a more confident and mature Mark Hamill) and his nemesis-father, Darth Vader (David Prowse, voice of James Earl Jones), as the rebel alliance makes its last stand against the evil Empire. The film opens with an impressive set piece in the cave of the monstrous Jabba the Hut, who holds both Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) for his decadent pleasure until Skywalker comes to the rescue. The final battle pits an enormous armada of rebel ships against the rebuilt Death Star, the planet-killing weapon of the first film, while guerrilla forces battle Empire soldiers on the planet below with the help of a cuddly army of pint-sized, teddy-bear-like creatures known as Ewoks (Lucas's one concession to merchandising) and Skywalker confronts Vader and the emperor on the Deathstar. Director Richard Marquand invests the tale with plenty of humor and a vigorous sense of adventure without losing the seriousness of Skywalker's mission. The special edition adds, among other effects, more creatures and a bouncy song-and-dance number to the Jabba the Hut scenes, and an extended celebration that literally encompasses the galaxy at the film's jubilant conclusion. --Sean Axmaker

Pros: -Great steelbook cover.
-Great Sound and Visuals
Cons: Worst changes of any of the special editions including:
-Stupid Hayden Christenson replaces Sebastian Shaw at the end of the film in force ghost form.
-Vader says "NOOOOOO" before throwing The Emperor as if him not saying anything somehow hides the fact that he is conflicted.
- Jabbas Palace music number scene *cringe* (I hate this change and the scene in general sooo much)
-Bad CGI

My point is, if hate these special editions then don't bother buying this one. If you can handle them and not get too distracted by them. (Which, as hard as it is, I can do) Go ahead and buy it.

Format: DVD
Didn't even recieve the right product. It was suppose to be the limited edition 2 dvd(first release + latest version), full screen.
What I recieved was regular dvd, not even the same cover as shown in the add, with only one disc(latest version) coming from a boxset(not sku on box)
And finally the add qualified the product as like new, but the box was dirty and the dvd was full of scratches...

I bought all 6 steel books. Two of them can in after market wrapping. Someone did a good job of making them look brand new. And one of them has a tear in the front of the packaging.

Other than that, great looking steel books. Just a bit disappointed as to how they came in.

If you don't already own the Bluray and don't mind too much about eveything George Lucas scrapped with the new edition. Then this is worth it. It's still a big piece of my childhood so, yep I liked it!

Format: DVD
INTRO:For the first time on DVD in 2006 the "original" films of the Star Wars trilogy were released,fans are finally getting the chance to see the original movies,"IV:A New Hope","V:The Empire Strikes Back" and "VI:Return Of The Jedi" as they were shown in theaters back in 1977,1980 and 1983 respectively.Altought those DVDs are said to be for a limited time only,its almost sure that there is going to be another version or release of those "as seen in theaters movies" in a special edition sometime soon.

ORGINAL,REALLY?:This is said to be the original movies,but still some of the mistakes like the blue rod wich held the Millenium Falcon model,that were present in the original version are not present here,making of them not so original,but i beleve that those are minor changes that don`t affect the movie in any way and doesn`t prevent it of being good.

THE MOVIE ITSELF:1983`s Episode VI:Return Of The Jedi is the third movie of the Star Wars series,once again featuring Luke and CO. in this second sequel to "A New Hope" and they ecounter once again with Darth Vader and discovering who he really is,not to forget the classic and memorable "Luke...I Am Your Father",Episode VI is a great enjoyable movie from beggening to end.While it might seem dated compared to the prequel trilogy in terms off sounds and effects it remains amazing.

TWO DISCS?:It is a very nice option to choose between two versions of the same movie,the original version and the special edition version.That way you can choose wich you want to watch and compare the two releases,but why didn`t they make a box set ainvailable as well as the separate movies,it would have contained the three movies togheter,seems like a no-brainer to me.

ONCE AGAIN:This marks the what?

"So be it. . . Jedi."
- The Emperor
With Return of the Jedi, the space opera saga/cultural phenomenon that began with Star Wars in 1977 and continued with The Empire Strikes Back in 1980, comes to a close.
This perhaps the most difficult film to categorize as far as quality and living tup to expectations. Executive Producer Gary Kurtz parted ways with Lucas after Empire, and Jedi would have been a different film in many respects had he and his ideas stayed put. However, Lucas wanted certain things and would not buge, and what the viewer gets is a climactic and spectacular, if somewhat unfocused, conclusion to one of the most beloved film trilogies of all time.
Luke Skywalker, an older and wiser man for his defeat at Cloud City, attempts a daring rescue mission in the seedy lair of the gangster Jabba the Hutt, a mission to free Han Solo who is being kept as a showroom piece by the ruffian slug. This premise gives birth to the first in a string of incredible action set pieces ranging from monster pits to desert oceans to the blackness of space to the luch forrests of the forrest moon of Endor.
Moving the action along, the plot is more daring even than that of the first movie. The Rebel Alliance, having learned of a new, more powerful Death Star, prepare to mount a final resistance against the station in the hopes of ending the war with one swift stroke. To help accomplish this, Luke, Han, and Leia must deactivate the generator that keeps the Death Star shielded.
However, this won't even be as easy as it sounds. Luke no knows that Darth Vader is his father, and he must confront him if he is to become a fully-fledged Jedi Knight.
