According to Gary Kurtz, the original treatment ended with Luke Skywalker walking off alone and exhausted like the hero in a Spaghetti Western, going into seclusion by walking out into the Tatooine desert. George Lucas opted for a happier ending to encourage higher merchandise sales. See more »
When the AT-STs (chicken-walkers) fire their main weapons, each red bolt is usually preceded by a green muzzle flash. In several instances, the muzzle flash comes after or between shots. It most noticeably occurs just after the Ewok in a hang glider drops a rock on a AT-STs roof, its subsequent firing pattern is inconsistent. See more »

A Special Edition was released on 14 March 1997 (USA). It contains a variety of new special effects shots including:
A new dance number for Jabba's palace, with new band members and dancers/backup singers.
New shots of Boba Fett flirting with one of the dancers at Jabba's palace.
The Sarlacc Pit is now more a Sarlacc Beast, with more flailing tentacles and a protruding mouth.
The lightsabers in all 3 movies are less beam-of-light-like and more sword-like.
A brand new ending shows celebrations on Endor, Bespin, Tatooine, and Coruscant, the Imperial Homeworld.
A new shot of a computer generated Bantha herd seen crossing the desert as Jabba's barge sails by in the distance.
When Han Solo is trying to shoot the Sarlacc to help Lando, he says "I can see a lot better now" instead of "Its all right. Trust me."
A new Death Star explosion (similar to the one in the Star Wars Special Edition)
New music in several sections, most noticeable in the end celebration.
One of the little known Special Edition additions was a digital re-mix of the Emperor's death scene. When Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker betrays the Emperor, he now lets out a tortured scream as he picks up the Emperor. This was re-mixed with James Earl Jones's scream, Mark Hamill's screams and a sound of a screeching tire.
A short moment at the end when Luke winks at the Jedi ghosts was removed.
The audio track for the very last scene of the film, with all of the actors gathered, was corrected to have music continue to play. In the original release, the actors' voices and laughter could be heard in this scene.
When a tiny ray drew the entire galaxy to the Light ...
So the legendary original trilogy "Star Wars" came up to its logical end, for 6 years it excited the minds of the audience. Lucas and the company present to us the long-awaited finale, which will finally put all the points in the fates of the heroes and give us one of the most spectacular space battles between Good and Evil.
This time, the little-known Richard Markwand sits in the director's chair. All of us favorite "father" STAR WARS George Lucas acted only as a screenwriter. For which it can be praised, because the script was very good, without long actions and dialogues, and most importantly-exciting.
The Far-Far Galaxy becomes the battlefield between the Empire and the Rebels. The construction of the second Death Star is coming to an end, and anticipating an early attack of the rebels, the head of the evil galactic state Emperor Palpatine arrives at the station to watch the battle, arrogantly hoping for the victory of the imperial forces. Meanwhile, the drama continues to develop between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The former farm boy knew the Force and now he is waiting for the final fight with Lord Sith. Luke believes that there is still good in him and that there is still a chance for salvation.
In addition to meeting with Vader Luke, in the company of his friends: Leah, Chewbacca and the droids R2D2 and C3PO saves Han Solo from the slippery claws of the gangster Jabba the Hutt. And soon the main characters are reunited with the forces of the Rebellion to prepare for the final battle.
Actor's game, once again, you can praise. Mark Hammil again shone. The tension he felt, fighting inside himself with anger, spurred by the Emperor, was transmitted from the screen and made him feel empathic with the protagonist. Carrie Fisher, this time, supplemented her game with a beautiful figure, so often flashed at the beginning of the picture. Harrison Ford once again proved that he is an excellent actor who does not give up his position. I would especially like to note Ian McDiarmid. The image of the Emperor was excellent. How much evil, arrogance, excessive pride. This actor played Palpatine just as well in the prequel trilogy.
Visual effects, as it should for STAR WARS, are performed at the highest level of quality. The abundance of space battles, fights on lightsabers, technology - all this due to high quality becomes a matter of good nostalgia. I really liked the new characters - Ewoks, little bear cubs-aborigines of the green planet Endor, on whose orbit the "Death Star" was built.
I want to say a big thank you to John Williams for the fact that this magnificent composer rejoiced with his delightful melodies throughout all the sagas, both original and prequel trilogy.
The picture has once again proved that, no matter how gloomy and dark the world is, even the slightest ray of light can illuminate this world.
George, along with Richard, completed the saga dignifiedly, in a big way. But, as we know, Lucas's imagination is unlimited and the departure to the history of the Star Wars has been postponed, since 16 years later a new episode appeared - "The Hidden Menace", which marked the return of the phenomenon to the screens.
