The Rescue of Han Solo, also known as the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon,[5] was a mission carried out by members of the Alliance to Restore the Republic to rescue Han Solo, who was frozen in carbonite, from Jabba the Hutt. Solo's friends in the Rebel Alliance set out to find and rescue the former smuggler from Jabba's Palace on Tatooine. Solo was freed by his friends, but the crime lord ordered that they be executed. This led to a battle at the Great Pit of Carkoon between the small group of Rebels and Jabba's forces. One of the Rebels, Princess Leia Organa, killed Jabba, while Luke Skywalker and the others fought off Jabba's guards. With Jabba dead, the Rebels escaped and returned to the Rebellion.[3]

Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, in which the Battle of Yavin appears, is set as Year 32. Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, in which the rescue of Han Solo takes place, is set as Year 36. Using simple math, it can be deduced that Han Solo's rescue took place four years after the Battle of Yavin.
