Darth Vader's forces manage to dislodge the rebels from the planet Yavin, and now the survivors are forced to hide on an icy planet called Hoth. The Empire never ceases to search for them, and therefore sends out reconnaissance probes throughout the galaxy. One such device, during a patrol of the planet, you find Han Solo and his loyal friend Chewbacca. Realizing that they have been discovered, the rebels begin to prepare to repel the impending threat. At this time, Obi-WAN Kenobi sends Luke to the distant planet Dagoba, to the great Jedi master Yoda. Skywalker will have to go through a long and difficult training, but thanks to this he will turn into a true Jedi.
