      Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi - 40th Anniversary

      PG Released Apr 28, 2023 2 hr. 11 min. Action Adventure Fantasy Sci-Fi List
      Reviews 99% 500+ Verified Ratings Audience Score 2023 marks the 40th anniversary of one of the most beloved chapters in the Star Wars saga, Return of the Jedi. Released in 1983, it was the third film in the original Star Wars trilogy, bringing to a close -- at least for a time -- the storylines introduced and developed in 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope and 1980's The Empire Strikes Back. Return of the Jedi is the film that first featured Jabba the Hutt, the lovable Ewoks, and one of the most poignant moments in the entire Star Wars saga -- Vader's ultimate sacrifice to save his son... and the galaxy.

      Keith Garlington Arkansas Democrat-Gazette The influence of "Jedi" (and the original Star Wars trilogy as a whole) has gone well beyond the first three films and still entertains legions of fans today. It did me all those years ago. And it still does today. Rated: 5/5 Apr 28, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
