Revealing mistake: After the heroes get snared and surrounded by Ewoks on Endor, the Ewoks mistake C3PO for a god and start bowing. There is one Ewok which only has holes where the eyes and mouth are and you can see the eyes and mouth of the person inside the Ewok costume. (01:07:50)
Luke, Han, Leia, and Chewy arrive on Endor, but they are separated during a skirmish with Storm Troopers. Leia encounters Ewoks, small furry creatures who take her to their tree village. Luke, Han, Chewbacca, C3PO, and R2 become ensnared in an Ewok net, and the Ewoks believe C3PO is a god. The group is reunited with Leia, and Luke persuades the Ewoks to help the Rebels. Sensing Vader is aboard the space station and knowing he can sense his presence on Endor, Luke tells Leia he’s endangering the mission and must leave. He reveals to her Darth Vader is his father and that she is also his child. Luke surrenders to Vader who takes him to Emperor Palpatine on the Death Star. The rebel fleet arrives to attack the Death Star, but the protective shield is still operational. Watching helplessly as the battle unfolds, Luke vows never to turn to the dark side. He struggles to submerge his anger and hate but is goaded by Palpatine to surrender to his emotions and attack him with his light saber. Luke attempts to strike, but Vader intervenes and they duel. Vader hears Luke’s thoughts that Leia is his sister and now he intends to turn her to the dark side. To protect Leia, Luke furiously attacks Vader. He has become powerful and after an intense battle, defeats Vader. Palpatine urges Luke to kill Vader and assume his position, but Luke refuses and tosses aside his light saber. Accepting that Luke can never be turned, the emperor showers him with electrical bolts. As Luke writhes in agony, Vader picks up Palpatine and throws him to his death down a deep reactor shaft. Vader is mortally wounded. Aided by Ewoks, Han and Leia destroy the shield generator. The Rebel fleet attacks the Death Star, delivering it a lethal blow. With destruction imminent, Luke drags the dying Vader to a small ship. Near death, Vader asks Luke to remove his mask so he can look upon his son with his own eyes and then dies. Luke escapes moments before the space station explodes. With Palpatine and Vader dead, the Empire collapses and the Republic is restored. During celebrations on Endor, the ghostly specters of Obi Wan, Yoda, and the youthful Anakin (Vader) appear to Luke. Redeemed and fulfilling his destiny to return balance to the Force, Anakin is a Jedi once again.
Han Solo: I think my eyes are getting better - instead of a big dark blur I see a big light blur.
Trivia: When Oola the dancing girl (with those two things growing out of the back of her head) is trying to get away from Jabba, she briefly falls out of the top of her costume. It isn't as visible in the letterbox version, but quite visible in the regular version.
Question: After Anakin becomes Darth Vader, he seems ruthless, actually evil. "From my point of view, the Jedi are evil!" Is just one quote. That being the case, this movie makes it seem like Anakin knows that he's evil and wishes he wasn't. Basically, my question is, why didn't Anakin turn on Palpatine sooner? Or simply leave the Sith?
