Return of the Jedi Honest Trailer

This weekend brings the next installment of the Star Wars saga with Mark Hamill returning to the role he originated for the first time over 40 years ago. But before that, let’s flashback to the time Mark Hamill returned as Luke Skywalker in 1983, as a full blown Jedi.

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is the third chapter in the original Star Wars trilogy, and while there’s a lot to like, there’s also a lot to be upset about.

The Santa Clause Honest Trailer
