Summary
Forced by an Imperial attack to flee from their base on the ice planet of Hoth, the Rebel forces are scattered. Luke makes his way to Dagobah for training by the Jedi Master Yoda while Han, Leia and C3PO head to Bespin to avoid the Imperial fleet. It is here that Darth Vader sets a trap to lure Luke to the Dark Side of the Force, and in the midst of a savage lightsaber duel lets slip a stunning revelation (well it was in 1980!) about his true identity. The second of the original trilogy is presented on DVD with remastered picture and 5.1 sound, as well as other changes to what's gone before
