A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away Luke, Han, and Princess Leia’s story didn’t end with the destruction of the Death Star – it continues in The Empire Strikes Back. Though they had won a significant battle, the war between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire had really just begun. Now, several months later, the Rebels had established an outpost on the frozen wasteland of Hoth. But even on that icy, backwater planet, they could not escape the evil Darth Vader’s notice for long. Soon, Luke, Han, Princess Leia, and their faithful companions were forced to flee, scattering in all directions the Dark Lord’s minions in fevered pursuit!
