TNT will host a daylong marathon of the original “Star Wars” trilogy on Sunday, Sept. 6.

•“Star Wars: A New Hope” (noon and 11:30 p.m. ET, starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Alec Guinness and Peter Cushing): In a distant galaxy, a long time ago, young Luke Skywalker assembles his motley crew of allies including space rogue Han Solo and two "droids" – C3PO and R2D2 – to rescue Princess Leia, the rebel leader of her planet, from the clutches of the evil Empire as embodied by its enforcer Darth Vader.

•“Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” (2:45 p.m. and 2:15 a.m., starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Alec Guinness): Luke Skywalker and his loyal band team up to do battle with Empire's forces who decide to enact revenge. Yet, Luke is empowered by the Jedi master Yoda in learning to master the "Force,” something he will need when he meets Darth Vader in a startling confrontation.

•“Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” (5:32 p.m., starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill): Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian and their small army of friends rescue Han Solo from the clutches of the menacingly ugly Jabba the Hutt and go on to do battle with the Empire, even after Darth Vader has broken off in his own rebellion.

Plus:

•“Solo: A Star Wars Story” (8:30 p.m., starring Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover and Thandie Newton): Young Han Solo finds adventure when he joins forces with a gang of galactic smugglers and a 190-year-old Wookie named Chewbacca. Indebted to the gangster Dryden Vos, the crew devises a daring plan to travel to the mining planet Kessel to steal a batch of valuable coaxium. In need of a fast ship, Solo meets Lando Calrissian, the suave owner of the perfect vessel for the dangerous mission, the Millennium Falcon.
