General synopsis

The three films, which pick up 19 years after the events of the prequel trilogy, center around Luke Skywalker, the farmboy son of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala. Restless for adventure, Luke joins the ragtag Rebel Alliance in its struggle to overthrow the evil Galactic Empire.

Luke successfully resists the efforts of Vader and Emperor Palpatine to turn him to the dark side of the Force; instead, he turns his father back to the light side while the Rebel fleet scores a decisive victory against the Empire to end the Galactic Civil War.
