Hunted across the galaxy by the relentless empire, the valiant heroes of the rebellion fight for survival, while young Luke Skywalker finds himself drawn to the Dagobah system to learn the ways of the Jedi from the wise mentor Yoda. When his friends fall into the hands of Darth Vader, Luke journeys to the cloud city of Bespin to confront the Sith Lord, but is he prepared emotionally for what is to come?

Even as he comes to terms with the hard truths he faces in confronting Vader, Luke has no time to rest, as a reckoning must come for the nefarious gangster Jabba the Hutt on Luke’s home world of Tatoonie, a valiant rescue mission is carried out, but can all of Luke’s new training enable him in freeing Han Solo?

This fanedit combines the majority of the definitive middle act in the Star Wars saga with over forty five minutes worth of footage from Return of the Jedi to create a more complete viewing experience, with a different prologue and cliffhanger ending!

Changes are largely

-Vader communicating with the Emperor opens the film
-Majority of the first half of ROTJ plays out shortly after Luke receives his metal hand
-New ending is Luke receiving verification of his father’s identity and learning there is another Skywalker (but we don’t learn it’s Leia), film ends on Yoda fading away.

This sounds like quite a different and interesting edit. How will you transition between the two movies?

There’s a wipe shortly after Luke gets his robotic hand and we join 3-PO and R2 approaching Jabba’s palace.
