While Vader relentlessly pursues the small band of Luke's friends"?Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and others"?across the galaxy, Luke studies the Force under Jedi Master Yoda. When Vader captures Luke's friends, Luke must decide whether to complete his training and become a full Jedi Knight or to confront Vader and save them.
