Had there ever been a more anticipated sequel than THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK? And one that not only met expectations, but exceeded them? Producer George Lucas hired relatively unknown director Irvin Kershner and paired him with screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Leigh Brackett (she helped write The Big Sleep), and the result is a film that is at once soap opera, cliffhanger, swashbuckler and sci-fi masterpiece. From its startling opening on the ice planet to Luke & company meeting the awesome Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) in Cloud City, The Empire Strikes Back is one incredible set piece after another, and arguably the best Star Wars of them all.
