Vader Dass (David Prowse) secretly captures the starship of Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) of Alderaan. In a critical moment, Leia orders the robot R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) to carry important information to the reclusive Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness) for help. R2 successfully escaped from the spacecraft, but was captured by the Jawas on the way to find Obi-Wan, and sold to farmer Owen (Phil Brown), R2 had to escape again. The next day, after Owen’s nephew Luke (played by Mark Hamill) found R2, he was attacked by three sandmen. Fortunately, Obi-Wan appeared in time to scare away the sandmen. Luke returned home and found that Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru (played by Kjerag Fraser) had been killed by the Imperial Stormtroopers hunting R2, so he decided to follow Obi-Wan to learn the way of the Force and become a Jedi. Obi-Wan hires the Millennium Falcon of smuggler Han Solo (Harrison Ford) at a high price and heads for Alderaan…
