After Yoda's death, for the only time, Luke Skywalker addresses Obi-wan Kenobi as "Obi-wan", rather then "Ben", as he did in the first two movies. See more »
Endor is repeatedly referred to as the "Forest Moon" or "Sanctuary Moon" throughout the entire movie, yet in the scene when the Rebel Fleet comes out of hyperspace, you see Endor and the Death Star from a distance, but there appears to be no sign of the planet the Endor moon is orbiting. The novelization explains that the planet has been destroyed "of unknown cataclysm and disappeared into unknown realms." See more »

Opening crawl: "Luke Skywalker has returned to his home planet of Tatooine in an attempt to rescue his friend Han Solo from the clutches of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. Little does Luke know that the GALACTIC EMPIRE has secretly begun construction on a new armored space station even more powerful than the first dreaded Death Star. When completed, this ultimate weapon will spell certain doom for the small band of rebels struggling to restore freedom to the galaxy..." See more »
The Special Edition of this film corrects a minor goof. In the original version, when the Emperor arrives, numerous TIE Fighters are seen flying around the Death Star. The first group of TIE Fighters that appear on screen and fly closer and closer to the Death Star simply disappear in an instant right before the scene changes to the Emperors arrival inside. In the Special Edition, they continue on their path and do not disappear. See more »
I'm sick of people whining about Ewoks! True, they're not the best thing that ever happened to Star Wars, but they DID happen, so deal with it! Besides, they ARE cute, and I don't care if they're marketable. Yubb Nubb!
This movie always leaves me in tears. It's perfect. The end could not be better. I'm excited for The Phantom Menace because it will suddenly throw the focus of the whole story from Luke to Anakin. I love how he is revealed at the end - it would be too unresolved any other way. So those of you who are complaining that Vader's helmet was removed, take a moment to think about it. It's very effective. Vader, the man who hid behind a mask for 20 years, is finally revealed as a sick-looking man. He is not entirely machine - he's vulnerable.
I don't know how the casting director happened to pick such good actors in A New Hope. They all do so well. They are believable characters. Hamill does an excellent job with his dramatic character development. Fisher does a fine job being a female role model (I mean, come on! She killed Jabba even when so many others had failed!). Harrison Ford - need I say more?
The music is once again brilliant. It's so very touching and significant when you can pick out character themes at different parts of the movie. The best climax is when Luke shouts "NOOO!" and jumps out to fight his father in the Final Battle. John Williams is nothing short of a genius! What an amazing man!
Already, the movie has so much more meaning for me because of Episode I. I can't wait to finally see it in the theatres (CAN I WAIT???) and then watch the original trilogy yet again.
