• The Star Wars Holiday Special (Full Movie) star wars star wars holiday special The Star Wars Holiday Special dr-archeville •

37 years ago today – November 17th, 1978 – CBS pre-empted both Wonder Woman and The Incredible Hulk to air The Star Wars Holiday Special.  It has never been rebroadcast, or officially released on home video.   Lucas himself – who actually had little to do with its production – has said that if he could, he would destroy every copy with a sledgehammer.  (I’ve always  suspected that Lucas’s dissatisfaction with this is why he became so wary about letting other people play with his stuff.)

The link above goes to the movie, in its entirely, on YouTube.  Watch it now before Lucasfilm/Disney takes it down!

Trivia: The Star Wars Holiday Special is where Boba Fett was actually introduced!  It also introduced Chewbacca’s family: his wife, Mallatobuck (“Malla”), their son, Lumpawarrump (“Lumpy”), and Chewie’s father, Attichitcuk (“Itchy”).

HAPPY LIFE DAY!

EDIT: The animated short (which introduced Boba Fett) has been cut from this version.  You can watch it here or here.
