The Rebel Alliance learns that the Empire is building a second Death Star and that the Emperor is on board overseeing its construction. The Rebels plan to destroy the station - but a deflector shield protects it from attack. Han - Chewie - Leia - Luke - C-3PO - and R2-D2 are sent to Endor to disable the shield. After being chased by Scout Troopers - they are befriended by the native Ewoks - who join their fight against the Empire. Han tricks the Stormtroopers into letting him into their bunker and shuts down the shield. Rebels and Ewoks battle the Stormtroopers - with Chewie arriving to help his friends in a captured AT-ST Walker. With the shield down - the Rebel fleet destroys the Death Star - ending Emperor Palpatine's rule.
