Star Wars: Dark Empire (1991)

Part of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, the trilogy follows events in the Star Wars franchise years after Return of the Jedi, specifically the aftereffects of Timothy Zahn‘s Thrawn trilogy. The story deals with the return of the villainous Palpatine, having successfully cheated death by having his spiritual entity “reincarnated” through the essence transfer ritual and cloning technology. Other themes include Luke Skywalker temporarily succumbing to the dark side of the Force, the official return of Boba Fett (who had seemingly died after being swallowed by the Sarlacc in Return of the Jedi), and the first appearance of Princess Leia and Han Solo‘s son, Anakin Solo.
