Plot summaryEdit

Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa arrive at Cloud City hoping to find refuge with Solo's old friend Lando Calrissian, but the Galactic Empire had arrived first and capture the Rebels. Darth Vader tortures Solo in an effort to lure Luke Skywalker to Bespin and then proceeds to freeze the smuggler in carbonite to ensure the procedure would work for his true prize, Skywalker. Meanwhile, on Dagobah, Yoda is training Luke in the ways of the Force, and the young Jedi has visions of his friends in pain in Cloud City. Luke decides to try to rescue them despite Yoda's objection.
