Fleeing the empire, Princess Leia entrusts the plans to The Death Star to R2-D2 including a message to Obi-Wan Kenobi. R2-D2 comes across Luke Skywalker on a planet who views the message and takes it to Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan explains to Luke that Luke's father was a Jedi who was killed by Darth Vader. Luke and Obi-Wan join forces with a smuggler to take them to Leia's homeworld only to find it has been destroyed by The Death Star. They rescue a captured Leia and use the knowledge learnt from the stolen plans to destroy The Death Star.
A few years later, rebels fighting against the Empire are found on a frozen planet and a battle ensues. Luke escapes and travels to a planet to train with Jedi Master Yoda.
