Stumbling upon to droids named C-3PO and R2-D2, he is taken to meet Obi-Wan Kenobi, who then presents him with Luke’s father’s lightsaber. Upon discovering that his aunt and uncle had been killed by Imperial Stormtroopers, Luke decides to train to be a Jedi, like his deceased father, by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Joining up with Han Solo and Chewbacca, the group decides to attempt to rescue Princess Leia, a princess being held captive by the evil Darth Vader. Losing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the process, the group eventually rescues Princess Leia and destroys Darth Vader’s Death Star to conclude the film.
