In this third film from the original Star Wars trilogy, Luke Skywalker completes his Jedi training with master Yoda in Dagobah, where he confirms Luke’s worst fear — Darth Vader is his father. He also learns that Leia is his sister, and this adds more pressure for him to complete his desperate quest of turning his father away from the Dark Side. Luke, seen above, rescues an imprisoned Hans Solo and Princess Leia from the treacherous Jabba the Hunt and casts Boba Fett into the pit of a Sarlacc. The film also features the famous scene where the Rebels fight to defeat the Empire in the battle of Endor, with the help of an unexpected ally, the Ewoks.

The Tweet announcing the event has since been deleted.
