|The Battle of Hoth is a fictional battle in the 1980 science fiction film Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.|
The Empire, in the form of Darth Vader's Death Squadron, has found the main base of the Rebel Alliance on the planet Hoth. All parts of Hoth that are seen in the movie are snow-covered polar climates. The only local fauna seen are tauntauns, which resemble oversized kangaroos with ram horns, and carnivorous beasts called wampas.
Finse, Norway was used as the location for the fictional Hoth in the movie.
