It was 34 years ago. We were taken to others places as Hoth, Dagobah and the Cloud City. We were introduced to Yoda, Lando Calrissian and Boba Fett. We learned much more about the Force and about who was Luke’s father. C-3PO told us about the chances of surviving an asteroid field…

According to Wikipedia, following a difficult production, “The Empire Strikes Back” was released on May 21, 1980, and initially received mixed reviews from critics, although it has since grown in esteem, becoming the most critically acclaimed chapter in the “Star Wars” saga and is considered one of the greatest films ever made. It became the highest-grossing film of 1980 and, to date, has earned more than $538 million worldwide from its original run and several re-releases. When adjusted for inflation, it is the 12th-highest-grossing film in North America. Read more about “The Empire Strikes Back” on Wikipedia and IMDb.
