Before her capture, Leia makes sure the astromech droid R2-D2 will escape with stolen Imperial blueprints and a holographic message for the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi , who has been living in exile on Tatooine.

Finally, they deliver the Death Star plans to the Rebel Alliance with the hope of exploiting a weakness. The third draft replaced a deceased Annikin with Ben Kenobi. Lucas hired Alan Dean Foster , who was ghostwriting the novelization of the first film , to write them with the main creative restriction that they could be filmed on a low budget.

Return of the Jedi Main article: Return of the Jedi Puppeteer Frank Oz left and actor Ian McDiarmid right portrayed Yoda and Palpatine, respectively, in the original trilogy and returned to play the roles in the prequel trilogy.

Afterward, Luke returns to Dagobah to complete his Jedi training, only to find the year-old Yoda on his deathbed. As the rebels lead an attack on the second Death Star, Luke engages Vader in another lightsaber duel as Emperor Palpatine watches; both Sith Lords intend to turn Luke to the dark side and take him as their apprentice.

This led to tension between the two, resulting in Kurtz leaving the production. After losing much of his fortune in a divorce settlement in , George Lucas had no desire to return to Star Wars, and had unofficially canceled the sequel trilogy by the time of Return of the Jedi.

Nevertheless, technical advances in the late s and s continued to fascinate Lucas, and he considered that they might make it possible to revisit his year-old material. The popularity of the franchise was reinvigorated by the Star Wars expanded universe storylines set after the original trilogy films, such as the Thrawn trilogy of novels written by Timothy Zahn and the Dark Empire comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics. Due to the renewed popularity of Star Wars, Lucas saw that there was still a large audience.

This was the final step towards turning the film series into a "saga". Following the release of that film, Lucas announced that he would be directing the next two, and began work on Episode II. Attack of the Clones Main article: Revenge of the Sith Main article: While Palpatine re-organizes the Republic into the tyrannical Empire, Vader participates in the extermination of the Jedi Order ; culminating in a lightsaber duel between himself and his former master Obi-Wan on the volcanic planet Mustafar.
