Publisher's Summary

Star Wars Manga: Return of the Jedi 3 is the third volume in the Return of the Jedi manga series. It was illustrated by Shin-Ichi Hiromoto and was based upon the original story by George Lucas. It was adapted from the screenplay by George Lucas and Lawrence Kasdan. The cover art is by Adam Warren. Behind the scenes: A few large differences were present in this volume that distinguish it from the movie. An all-new scene in which a Mon Calamari capital ship is battered by a Star Destroyer's laser emplacements was added to the manga. This scene leads directly into the scene where Grizz Frix crashes his fighter into a Star Destroyer, which was in the movie but which is expanded here. Many of the other differences between the manga and its film counterpart stem from the manga style itself. For instance, Han Solo stomping an unarmed scout trooper repeatedly, or scenes being reversed in order for American readers to easily comprehend the book (the most noticeable difference being the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon's placement). Certain scenes of the movie are skipped or compressed though those that are skipped are few and far between. This is understandable given the nature of the media that it is portrayed in.
