Differences from the film
- Yoda is said to have blue skin in the novel, while in all other appearances his skin is greenish.
- Luke Skywalker's training with Yoda is given more detail than in the film.
- The Battle of Hoth is extended somewhat, such as when General Veers' AT-AT is destroyed by a Snowspeeder shortly after destroying the Rebels's shield generator.
- Darth Vader's lightsaber blade is said to be blue in the novel, whereas in the films it is red.
- When Luke is attacked by Stormtroopers in Cloud City, he returns fire with his blaster, unlike in the film, where he doesn't fire a single shot.
