The Imperial forces of the Empire are searching high and low for any of the Rebels. Thus after the Rebellion's defeat on ice planet Hoth, Luke (Mark Hamill) heads to planet Dagobah to train with Jedi Master Yoda (voiced by Frank Oz).

The simple farm boy Luke was in Star Wars: A New Hope is now replaced with a seasoned warrior, that may soon enough win his Jedi stripes. Also Rebels Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) have a lot more experience with fighting the Empire and Darth Vader (body moved by David Prowse and voiced by James Earl Jones).
