A long time ago in a galaxy far far away....
Nineteen years after the establishment of the Galatic Empire, the few minutes after the battle of Scarif and stealing the Death Star plans, rebels of the Tantive IV goes on lightspeed, and they stop and it flew over Tatooine, but an Imperial Star Destroyer lightspeeds behind them, and goes on a chase over the planet of Tatooine, and her ship is intercepted by the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Devastator over the desert planet of Tatooine. Imperial stormtroopers manage to board the ship, and after defeating the small number of guards defending the ship. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker is in the Tatooine desert repairing a moisture vaporator, assisted by a WED Treadwell repair droid, when he notices shining objects in the sky. Luke looks with his macrobinoculars at two ships engaged in combat beyond the atmosphere. He jumps into his landspeeder. The malfunctioning Treadwell blows a fuse and is unable to follow. Luke speeds off into the desert to find his friends. Back at the Tantive IV, the Sith Lord Darth Vader arrives to assess the damage. Vader is outraged and questions Captain Antilles, whom he eventually strangles and kills. Hiding on the ship, Princess Leia is spotted by stormtroopers. They shoot her with a stun blast and bring her before Vader. However, before being detained, Leia was able to record a holographic message with the help of R2-D2, and assigned the droid the responsibility of taking the message to a Jedi-in-hiding on Tatooine. Vader orders a message be sent to the Imperial Senate, informing them that the ship was destroyed, with everyone onboard killed. R2-D2 and C-3PO use an escape pod in order to escape the ship and reach the planet of Tatooine below.
- Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker: A young adult raised by his aunt and uncle on Tatooine, who dreams of something more than his current life and learns the way of the Jedi.
- Harrison Ford as Han Solo: A cynical smuggler hired by Obi-Wan and Luke to take them to Alderaan in his ship, the Millennium Falcon, co-piloted with Chewbacca.
- Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia: A member of the Imperial Senate and one of the many Leaders of the Rebel Alliance. Many young Hollywood actresses auditioned for the role of Princess Leia, including Amy Irving, Terri Nunn (also a singer), Cindy Williams, Karen Allen, and Jodie Foster.
- Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin: Commander of the Death Star. Lucas originally had Cushing in mind for the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, but Lucas believed that "his lean features" would be better employed in the role of Grand Moff Tarkin instead.
- Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan 'Ben' Kenobi: An aging Jedi Master and former mentor of Darth Vader who introduces Luke to the Force. Lucas' decision to cast "unknowns" was not taken favorably by his friend Francis Ford Coppola and the studio.
Differences from the 1977, and the Special Edtion versions
- Deleted, and extended scenes are used that were never used in the final versions, nor do the Special Editions.
- The scene where Luke Skywalker is in the Tatooine desert repairing a moisture vaporator, assisted by a WED Treadwell repair droid, when he notices shining objects in the sky.
- The scene is a conversation between Luke and his oldest friend, Biggs Darklighter. Biggs has left Tatooine and is on planet leave from the Imperial Academy, where he is training to be a space pilot.
- Aunt Beru's Blue Milk scene is used.
- The extended scene where Luke and C-3PO rush off in the land speeder to search for Artoo, with Threepio driving the landspeeder.
- Alternate Biggs and Luke Reunion — The scene between Biggs and Luke in the Rebel hangar bay lasts longer, involving Garven Dreis speaking of knowing Luke's father when he was just a boy.
- More footage of Kenobi sneaking around the Death Star in search of the tractor beam.
- The visual effects were changed from 1977, and a special edition with a nice visual, and CGI effects like Rogue One, and its sequel trilogy.
- The soundtrack that was performed by John Willaims were upgraded, including the Imperial March theme in this movie.
- Just like Revenge of the Sith, it has a lot of mature humor too, which it fits well in a PG-13 rated.
