One of the most memorable and depressing, yet hopeful images from The Empire Strikes Back was this scene of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2 and C-3PO watch as Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca pilot the Millennium Falcon away in search of Han Solo. The film ending on a cliffhanger was a bit of a surprise to fans at the time, many of whom were angered having to wait years to discover Han’s fate. As the credits began to scroll and the music swelled into John Williams’ all too familiar themes, those in the theater realized that they had witnessed a truly spectacular film.
