Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi script
Synopsis: After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.

Artoo beeps his reluctance as Threepio turns to leave. Suddenly the

massive door starts to rise with a horrific metallic SCREECH. The

robots turn back and face an endless black cavity. The droids look at

one another, afraid to enter.

Artoo starts forward into the gloom. Threepio rushes after his stubby

companion. The door lowers noisily behind them.


Artoo, wait. Oh, dear! Artoo. Artoo, I really don't think we should

rush into all this.

Artoo continues down the corridor, with Threepio following.


Oh, Artoo! Artoo, wait for me!


The door slams shut with a loud crash that echoes throughout the dark

passageway. The frightened robots are met by two giant, green GAMORREAN

GUARDS, who fall in behind them. Threepio glances quickly back at the

two lumbering brutes, then back to Artoo. One guard grunts an order.

Artoo beeps nervously.


Just you deliver Master Luke's message and get us out of here. Oh my!

Oh! Oh, no.

Walking toward them out of the darkness is BIB FORTUNA, a humanlike

alien with long tentacles protruding from his skull.


Die Wanna Wanga!


Oh, my! Die Wanna Wauaga. We -- we bring a message to your master,

Jabba the Hutt.

Artoo lets out a series of quick beeps.


...and a gift.

(thinks a moment, then to Artoo)

Gift, what gift?

Bib shakes his head negatively.


Nee Jabba no badda. Me chaade su goodie.

Bib holds out his hand toward Artoo and the tiny droid backs up a bit,

letting out a protesting array of squeaks. Threepio turns to the

strange-looking alien.


He says that our instructions are to give it only to Jabba himself.

Bib thinks about this for a moment.


I'm terribly sorry. I'm afraid he's ever so stubborn about these sort

of things.

George Lucas

George Walton Lucas, Jr. was raised on a walnut ranch in Modesto, California. His father was a stationery store owner and he had three siblings. During his late teen years, he went to Downey High School and was very much interested in drag racing. He planned to become a professional race-car driver. However, a terrible car accident just after his high school graduation ended that dream permanently. The accident changed his views on life. He decided to attend Modesto Junior College before enrolling in the University of Southern California film school. As a film student, he made several short films including THX-1138: 4EB (Electronic Labyinth) which won first prize at the 1967-68 National Student Film Festival. In 1967, he was awarded a scholarship by Warner Brothers to observe the making of Finian's Rainbow (1968) which was being directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Lucas and Coppola became good friends and formed American Zoetrope in 1969. The company's first project was Lucas' full-length version of THX 1138 (1971). In 1971, Coppola went into production for The Godfather (1972), and Lucas formed his own company, Lucasfilm Ltd. In 1973, he wrote and directed the semiautobiographical American Graffiti (1973) which won the Golden Globe and garnered five Academy Award nominations. This gave him the clout he needed for his next daring venture. From 1973 to 1974, he began writing the screenplay for Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). He was inspired to make this movie from Flash Gordon and the Planet of the Apes films. In 1975, he established I.L.M. (Industrial Light and Magic) to produce the visual effects needed for the movie. Another company called Sprocket Systems was established to edit and mix Star Wars and later becomes known as Skywalker Sound. His movie was turned down by several studios until 20th Century Fox gave him a chance. Lucas agreed to forego his directing salary in exchange for 40% of the film's box-office take and all merchandising rights. The movie went on to break all box office records and earned seven Academy Awards. It redefined the term "blockbuster". The rest is history. Lucas made the other Star Wars films and along with Steven Spielberg created the Indiana Jones series which made box office records of their own. From 1980 to 1985, Lucas was busy with the construction of Skywalker Ranch, built to accommodate the creative, technical, and administrative needs of Lucasfilm. Lucas also revolutionized movie theatres with the T.H.X. System which was created to maintain the highest quality standards in motion picture viewing. He went on to make several more movies that have introduced major innovations in film-making technology. He is chairman of the board of The George Lucas Educational Foundation. In 1992, George Lucas was honored with the Irving G. Thalberg Award by the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for his life-time achievement. more…
