Who says kids should only do narrations about things they don’t care a stitch about? My six year old did a great narration today in which he summarized Return of the Jedi. (To see a narration of Episode 2: Attack of the Clones go to my son’s blog. We are working our way towards narrating all of the movies.)
Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi
A Narration by T. Doud
January 6, 2009
The movie Return of the Jedi is about Darth Vader and his son fighting in the fully operational international space station called The Death Star.
Luke Skywalker came from a planet called Tattooine where there were rebels. Once they stole a small ship called the Imperial Shuttle, they went to a tropical looking planet which was actually a moon called Endor where there lived small creatures called Ewoks. There was a big creature that looked like a big Ewok called a Wookie. His name was Chewbacca, or Chewie for short.
Luke, Leia, Han, C3PO, R2D2 and Chewbacca went to the planet Endor and there they found a whole bunch of Storm Troopers, which are the Imperial Army. The rebels were trying to destroy the deflector shield of the Death Star by breaking into the building that controlled the shield.
The Storm Troopers and the rebels fought a battle in the forest. There was a big robot which I call a bunny walker because it goes on two feet. In the movie they are called Imperial Walkers. The Walker shot one of the Ewoks. Another one was sad that it got killed.
The Ewoks thought C3PO was a Golden God and they began to worship him. But they didn’t like Luke, Han, and Chewy. They liked Leia. They decided that they were going to burn the rebels. Luke used the force to make C3PO hover on the chair. C3PO told the Ewoks a story about the Jedis and how they were good. They let the rebels go.
C3PO said, “Now we are part of the tribe.”
Luke headed toward the Dagobah System to meet Yoda who was a very old Jedi Master. Yoda was a green little creature who trained Luke to use the force. When Luke got there he found out that Yoda was going to die. Yoda told Luke that there was another Skywalker who was Leia. Yoda died and disappeared. Obi Wan came out as a ghost and talked to Luke while Luke was fixing the ship.
Luke knew he had to go to the Death Star to fight his Dad who was Darth Vader who used to be Anakin Skywalker. When Luke got there he found the master of Darth Vader, The Emperor. Luke fought Darth Vader with his light saber. He said, “I will never turn to the dark side.”
Luke cut his dad’s hand off. He saw that it was an electric hand. The Emperor got killed because Darth Vader threw him down the hole and made a vortex of blue.
Luke took off Darth Vader’s helmet and he saw his dad’s real face. Then Darth Vader died. Luke took the Imperial Shuttle and went to the rebel place and destroyed the Death Star.
Luke went back to Endor and put Darth Vader in the fire. The Ewoks played happy music and that is the end.
