MY PERSONAL TOP TEN FAVORITE ORIGINAL TRILOGY MOMENTS
At the end of The Empire Strikes Back, Han Solo – encased in Carbonite within which, we are told by C-3PO, “he should be quite well protected” – is taken by Boba Fett to Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine. We know that Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca are leaving the Rebel Fleet to attempt rescue. We know that Luke Skywalker promises to meet them at the rendezvous point on Tatooine. But, until Return of the Jedi, we don’t know how they will get Solo back.
Following Luke’s plan, Luke himself, C-3PO, Princess Leia, R2-D2 and Chewbacca are all captured by Jabba and Lando is undercover. When Han is thawed out, appraised of this situation and told that Luke is now a Jedi Knight and in charge of the rescue, he is incredulous at best. “I’m out of it awhile and everyone gets delusions of grandeur” he quips to Chewbacca.
But Han’s most Han-Solo-y moment of the entire movie comes when he is finally reunited with Luke.
Han: How we doin’?
Luke: Same as always.
Han: That bad, huh?
