Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Princess Leia Organa flee the Death Star to the Rebel Alliance base on the moon Yavin 4. There they deliver R2-D2 to the Rebels, who use the information he is carrying to create a plan to destroy the Death Star. Meanwhile, the Death Star has followed the Millennium Falcon to the Rebel base intent on destroying it. Panicked, the Rebels send their pilots on a mission to destroy the Death Star. Luke, who has decided to help the Rebels, meets up with his old friend Biggs Darklighter as they get ready to blast off into space.
