Watch star wars episode iv a new hope 1977 full movie online. Princess Leia is captured and held hostage by the evil Imperial forces in their effort to take over the galactic Empire. Venturesome Luke Skywalker and dashing captain Han Solo team together with the loveable robot duo R2-D2 and C-3PO to rescue the beautiful princess and restore peace and justice in the Empire.
Imperial stormtroopers, having picked up the droids’ trail, locate and murder Luke’s family. With no ties to the planet, Luke agrees to go with Obi-Wan to Alderaan and learn the ways of the Force. At Mos Eisley, they charter a ride with Han Solo and Chewbacca, crew of the Millennium Falcon.
Flying the not-so-friendly skies, the Millennium Falcon evades the Imperials and makes the jump to lightspeed. When they come out of hyperspace, they learn that the Death Star has destroyed the planet and—despite their earlier escape—they’re captured by the Death Star.
Using video game logic, they trick stormtroopers into the Falcon, steal their clothes, and seize a nearby control room. Obi-Wan goes to turn off the power to the tractor beam while Luke convinces Han Solo to help him rescue Princess Leia.
The heroes manage to rescue Leia, and after a quick detour through the trash compactor, return to the Falcon. Obi-Wan turns off the tractor beam but is confronted by Darth Vader on his way back to the ship. With a knowing smile, Obi-Wan willingly perishes at the business end of Darth Vader’s lightsaber. Luke witnesses his mentor’s demise but escapes with the others… thanks to some otherworldly prompting by Obi-Wan.
Leia leads the Millennium Falcon to the Rebel base on Yavin IV (although she suspects the Empire is tracking them). They totally are. Using R2’s data, the Rebels strategize to destroy the Death Star by having a one-man starfighter launch a photon torpedo into a tiny exhaust port connected to the station’s reactor. Han Solo decides to skip the suicide run and settle his debt with Jabba the Hut.
