I found this amusing:


I did smile at the scene featuring Anakin at one with the Force - and Solo's comments at the end.

Bad animation & obvious humor; yet so much better than the actual movie.

All so obvious, and yet somehow fans embrace this movie, and all the others.*

末末末末末末

* Except PHANTOM MENACE for some reason. Even George Lucas' most devoted worshippers have a limit, I guess.

ROTJ is certainly not without flaws.

I enjoyed it regardless because it was eventful: the Jabba's palace stuff, Endor, Death Star and so much else. Also, and this is very much subjective, it sort of became a Christmas tradition in the house I grew up in: for some reason ROTJ got shown every year, probably between 24th and 26th December. I can't recall a period in the 80s to early 90s where it wasn't show on TV.

So it became special for that reason, too. ROTJ and Xmas chocolate became intertwined for me. I'm sure they showed STAR WARS and TESB at Xmas, too, but there appeared to be always room in the schedules for ROTJ.

Some obvious humor. But....they didn't build the Death Star with a big weakness. It had a big hole in it because it wasn't finished being built. (And of course exhaust port run to the reactor, how else would they be exhaust ports?)

Han at the end is cool though!

There was a different ending to ROTJ elsewhere: Chewie and Solo were the ones on the Death Star. Solo beat Vader, Chewie beat up the Emperor.

Where did this happen? In young Robbie's bedroom, with his action figures.

You see, young Robbie had an obsession with Solo, Chewie and C-3PO being the heroes of each and every battle! Whilst this was going on, Luke was trapped underneath Jabba.
