Hoping to crush the Rebellion once and for all, the Empire began construction of a second dreaded Death Star near Endor in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. In order to stop this terrible fate and destroy the second Death Star, the Rebel Alliance developed a two-pronged strategy: Han Solo and his strike team consist of Luke, Leia, and Chewbacca would destroy the superweapon’s shield generator on Endor, while Lando Calrissian, piloting the Millennium Falcon, would lead an aerial assault.
