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
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!
The movie is great- despite the, ahem, alterations. It looks great thought I'm not sure if it looks like a movie anymore and by any consistent measure for video quality I don't know how to review it- other than to say it looks better than I've ever seen the movie in all my many years. I wish the DNR had not been slathered all over it. I wish the Yub Nub song was still here. But the audio is amazing. The detail is also great with the caveat of the DNR and the extras are pretty comprehensive. Recommended.
The first copy I bought was bad. When I removed the shrink wrap, the case just sort of fell apart in my hands. But of course Best Buy replaced it no problem, so they still get a 5-star rating. As far as the product itself goes, it's a good quality 4k HDR release, though I wish it wasn't the highly edited version that George Lucas tries to force upon us. I wish they would just release the original theatrical version and leave it at that.
I’ve been a Star Wars fan since 1977 and I’ve passed the Star Wars gene onto my kids. We had the original trilogy in the minivan and they were from 2004 and the discs were scratched and starting to skip so I knew it was time to upgrade. I’m glad we did because whatever source material they used for this DVD is simply amazing. The colors are more vibrant and detail is improved. The sound mix also seems to be more immersive than the previous release as rear channel information seems beefier. If you’re looking to update your discs for your car I would highly recommend picking up this disc. You won’t be disappointed!
I would recommend this to a friend

A Great Movie, But Watch The Two Previous Films Fi
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
The classic Star Wars original Trilogy. Slightly clunky dialogue that somehow still holds a lot of charm in the modern age. Return of the Jedi is a great climactic movie to watch whether you've previously seen it or not. But I'd still recommend watching the first two in the trilogy before picking this one up. All around, a great purchase for what was the finale of a revolutionary series of movies.
Awesome HDR 4K Used in the movie is perfect. This movie never looked any better. Sure the 4K disc Doesn’t have all of the extra features in it but I can still be found on the regular Blu-ray disc. If you’re looking for a perfect version to watch on your 4K TV this is it. I picked this up for $15 while on a black Friday deal I’m very pleased about a purchase.
