Han Solo and the Rebel Commandos have fallen into the Emperor's trap and are now herded out into an area outside the shield generator bunker, in a terrific image used for early REVENGE OF THE JEDI promotion, as seen here in a spread FOR the FANTASTIC FILMS magazine.

Han Solo was to have fought against the Empire in a raid on a critical Imperial facility during REVENGE's original story ideas, according to Gary Kurtz, and would have been killed off halfway through the film. Lucas changed his mind about killing lead heroes off by the time he began his own storylining process going into 1981, and against the strong-willed requests of Harrison Ford.
