[Return of the Jedi—The Storybook Based on the Movie] simplifies the plot but covers the main action and reveals the crucial secrets…. It is an adequate vehicle for those who want to recall the pleasure of the movie, but those who have not seen the film will find the book disappointing. The excitement, suspense and sense of wonder have not made the transition to print. Though Jabba the Hutt is still repulsive, the Emperor is incongruously lacking in menace and even the Ewoks lose some of their appeal.
