    Synopsis


    Return of the Jedi
    In the final episode of the Star Wars saga, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) emerges intact from the carbonite casing in which he'd been sealed in The Empire Strikes Back. The bad news is that Solo, together with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), is prisoner to the grotesque Jabba the Hutt. But with the help of the charismatic Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams), our heroes and our heroine manage to escape. The next task is to rid the galaxy of Darth Vader (body by David Prowse, voice by James Earl Jones) and the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid), now in command of a new, under-construction Death Star. On the forest moon Endor, the good guys enlist the help of a feisty bunch of bear-like creatures called the Ewoks in their battle against the Empire. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      The Brilliant Conclusion to the StarWars Trilogy!

      Don't be taken in by those who accuse George Lucas's RETURN OF THE JEDI of being commercialized or disappointing. (In such an ambitious movie, many consciously search for flaws, or feel that putting down such a work makes them intelligent). This energetic, adventurous, and quite weighty film is a superb addition to the Star Wars Saga, begun in 1977 with the stunning, groundbreaking A NEW HOPE, and brought to a deeper level (not that the first film was at all shallow) in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. The acting is well done, and in critical places, such as Ian Mcdarmid's portrayal of the evil Emperor, is excellent. Action and special effects are extremely realistic and tie in perfectly with the storyline, and the film adeptly brings the themes and plotlines begun in the previous two movies to a conclusion. Combined with its predecessors, it is easily the best sci-fi film ever. NOTE: It's best to first watch the two movies that came before Return of the Jedi - Star Wars: A New Hope, and The Empire Strikes Back

      It's funny how movies are not really as great as we remember them. I finally got this on Blue ray. It was so so. As far as the actual disk, that was great. The video was beautiful, the movie a little to Muppet like for my tastes. I remember c3po being annoying in the original movie. Watching this I'm reminded just how much. The best parts were Leia in that metal bikini thing. The worst were those lame Ewoks and all the other muppet like stuff. My only real grip is the steel cage packaging. When you see it there appears to be a nice printed packaging, but it turns out its just a little sleeve type thing that isn't part of the box. You basically get just the steel case. I would have preferred if they at least had a wrap around packaging that you could actually keep. Its not a big deal, but people buy these movies so they can keep them so having something that looks nice is a plus. Still a good blueray though.

      Being one of those that grew up on the classic trilogy, I can still watch it, and love every moment, despite Lucas' continual tinkering. If there's any downside, I would point at that. Otherwise, fans can all appreciate that these originals were what made Star Wars so iconic that they define multiple generations now. Blinking Ewoks are still creepy and shouldn't have ever been a thing. With regard to this steelbook, regardless of the quality of the film, relative to the original Star Wars films; This is a great release. The packaging is beautiful, the features aren't missing anything that you really need unless you are a Jedi Master of nerdiness :D Overall, for those who would like to own the film, this is an excellent way to do it, if you want to have a cool, collectible set. It even matches my Episode VII steelbook.

      All in all, this has always been my personal favorite Star Wars movie. This version of the Return of the Jedi has plenty of the features and what not. My only complaint, and it's not a small complaint, is that the movie has been altered too much from the original version. If you want to see the Ewok's singing the yub nub song on Endar celebrating the big triumph, too bad. Instead you get revisionist scenes of celebrations on planets throughout the galaxy that didn't exist in the Star Wars movies until the first three episodes were made. Other changes have been well documented, you don't need to read them from me. But other than that, this is still way better than watching Return of the Jedi on the old VHS machine we had when I was a kid.

      My Favorite SW Film In Blu-ray Steelbook Packaging

      When this Blu-ray steelbook was on sale for 9.99 on May 4th, you couldn't pass it up even if you own the original trilogy on Blu-ray already. the collectable steelbook is worth the price of admission for 9.99. However, be warned. The extras are scarce on these and no Digital Copies at all. This set is very bare bones. Only get this edition if you want the collectable packaging or if you must own everything Star Wars. It's my favorite one! Emperor Palpatine!

      Blu-ray Steelbook Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

      Return of the Jedi, while a reasonably satisfying finale to the original trilogy, does not match the heights of the previous two films. It is pigeon-holed somewhere in the middle: not quite dark and mature enough to match Empire Strikes Back and not free-spirited and original enough to match A New Hope. The tone is more in line with the first film, but after Empire you want them to continue to get more mature and that didn't happen. The main aspects of the plot certainly are fine, but the subplots involving the Ewoks and rescuing Han seem kind of shoe-horned in. Ultimately, it is entertaining and certainly still worth watching, but a mild disappointment because of the high expectations of following Empire.

      Its Star Wars, need i say more? I bought the first release of Star Wars on Blu Ray a few years back. Although the packaging is nice, i dont like how you have to remove and put back disks into the sleeves. I also didnt care for the artwork. My brother has requested all 6 movies on blu ray so i bought the re-released 6 disk collection only to return it a week later when i heard they were releasing them individually in steel book. Yes you loose the 3 disks of bonus content, but the steel books look so much nicer. Almost want to pick up a set for myself. The bonus content on these is extremely limited, just commentary, which is kind of disappointing, but i rarely watch bonus content anyways...

      The Conclusion to the Original Trilogy

      No point in discussing the movie or franchise. It's been around almost 40 years now and it is a cornerstone of American film making. FOX did a pretty superb job with the first 6 Star Wars movies in Steelbook. Each Steelbook is a glossy finish with debossed titles, 1-Disc, has commentaries as the only special feature, inside artwork, and the back cover shows the theatrical poster of the respective Star Wars movie. I already owned the "Complete Saga" box set, but these were too beautiful to pass up. I had to own them all. They also look real nice next to the new Episode VII: The Force Awakens! Get these while you can! :D
