When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Transplanted to Mars, a Civil War vet discovers a lush planet inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter a princess who is in desperate need of a savior.
Darth Vader and the Empire are building a new, indestructible Death Star. Meanwhile, Han Solo has been imprisoned, and Luke Skywalker has sent R2-D2 and C-3PO to try and free him. Princess Leia - disguised as a bounty hunter - and Chewbacca go along as well. The final battle takes place on the moon of Endor, with its natural inhabitants, the Ewoks, lending a hand to the Rebels. Will Darth Vader and the Dark Side overcome the Rebels and take over the universe? Written by

Rented the DVD to see if I still found this movie to be as disjunct and trite as I thought it was in '83- it's worse than I remember. It does however warn us that the next two installments will hold together like a flimsy umbrella in a typhoon.
As everyone agrees- the cute little animals (Ewoks) really get under your skin and lower this action/sci-fi to Muppets in Space territory. Little did we know that we'd be begging for the Ewoks after meeting Jar Jar Binks in Episode 1 and 2. The plot of the trilogy begins to convolute during this movie, and the "Days of our Lives come back from the dead" device is exploited like a bad Vegas stripper.
