Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Scene 9

Scene 9

Scene 9

  • Back to Dagobah and back to handstands and levitation. Suddenly, Luke's concentration breaks and everything falls—he had some sort of vision of Han and Leia in danger in "the city in the clouds."
  • Yoda claims that Luke is seeing the future, which makes Luke want to leave immediately and save his friends. Yoda strongly warns against this, saying that it will undo everything that they've worked for.
  • We cut to the Falcon flying through the clouds. They're being escorted to a landing site with a great deal of hostility, which makes everyone nervous.
  • They land on a small platform on top of a giant floating city. It's actually pretty awesome. When they emerge, however, there's no one outside waiting for them.
  • Suddenly, a door opens and a group of men emerge—the one in the front angrily calls Han a "swindler" before grabbing him in a warm embrace.
  • This, of course, is Lando. He has a great mustache and even greater clothes and we hope that we're like him when we grow up.
  • They chat like old friends and Han explains that he needs repairs. That's when Lando reveals that the Falcon used to be his ship, and that Han won it in a card game.
  • As they enter the facilities, Han laughs about how a smuggler like Lando is now a political leader.
  • Meanwhile, C-3PO is lured away by a droid that sounds like R2 and ends up.... getting blasted to bits, so we guess C-3PO is dead now?
  • On Dagobah, Luke is loading up his X-Wing despite Yoda's vehement protestations. Even Ghosty-Wan Kenobi joins the game, saying that he doesn't want the same thing to happen to Luke that happened to Vader (Nerd alert: Vader used to be Obi-Wan's Jedi apprentice but turned to the Dark Side of the Force at some point in the past).
  • However, Luke is determined. The two Jedi Masters give him their well-wishes and Luke promises to return after he's taken care of business.
  • After Luke leaves, Obi-Wan says that he is their "last hope," to which Yoda mysteriously responds by saying, "No, there is another."
