Opening crawlEdit

A LONG TIME AGO IN A
GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY....
It is a dark time for the Rebellion.
Although the Death Star has been destroyed,
Imperial troops have driven the Rebel forces
from their hidden base and pursued them across
the galaxy....

Evading the dreaded Imperial starfleet, a group of
freedom fighters led by Luke Skywalker has established
a new secret base on the remote ice world of Hoth.

The evil Lord Vader, obsessed with finding young
Skywalker, has dispatched thousands of remote probes into the
far reaches of space. Unbeknownst to the Rebel forces, one of
the probes has headed for Hoth.

Publisher's summaryEdit

The Battle Rages On…

Led by young Luke Skywalker, the Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Empire's most lethal weapon, the Death Star. Now the Empire strikes back, attacking the Rebels on the ice planet Hoth. Luke, Han Solo, and Princess Leia barely escape. Luke's teacher, Obi-Wan Kenobi, summons him to the Dagobah system, where Luke meets the wise Jedi Master Yoda. Yoda attempts to teach Luke the ways of the Force. Meanwhile, Han and Leia fall into a deadly trap set by their archenemy, Darth Vader.

Can Luke save his friends in time—and prevent Darth Vader from conquering the galaxy? The Force is strong…but its dark side may be even stronger.
