Following the destruction of the Death Star, Princess Leia spearheads the revitalised Rebel Alliance, establishing a secret base of communications on the ice planet of Hoth. The Imperial army led by Darth Vader uses every resource at its disposal to discover the rebel position and mount a devastating attack with hulking AT-AT walkers. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker travels to planet Dagobah with R2-D2 to train under diminutive Jedi master Yoda.


Planet earth is slowly dying. Mankind looks to the stars for a new planet to colonise. When scientists discover a wormhole that should allow a spacecraft to travel beyond the galaxy into the unknown, doting father Cooper bids farewell to his son Tom and daughter Murph to lead an exploratory mission in search of a new home. Accompanied by fellow explorers Brand, Doyle and Romilly, Cooper undertakes the most important mission in human history.
