An honest review of the Star Wars Holiday Special


If you thought Anakin’s cornball one liners, the explanation of Midichlorians or Jar Jar Binks were bad…then you’ve seen nothing. George Lucas’ greatest shift to the dark side happened during Christmas 1978 when he pointed the Death Star of medicrity into lounge rooms around the world and shot a deadly ray beam of lame variety “entertainment” know and the Star Wars Holiday Special.

This TV Special has a very loose story line based around Chewbacca trying to get home for the non-denominational Christmas equivalent called Life Day.

This tame storyline is littered with viewing garbage such as annoyingly large periods of wookie dialogue, a crappy childishly drawn cartoon about Boba Fett and songs sung by Bea Aurthur and Princess Leia.

It’s hard to describe the true horror a Star Wars fan has whilst watching their favorite characters reluctantly recite cringe worthy lines and act out scenes that would make Jar Jar Binks fans blush.

Lucas' kaleidoscope of horrific shame

George Lucas has tried to bury this rotting corpse, but he must have buried it in an Indian burial ground because it just keeps coming back to haunt him. It’s also been rumored the CIA has adopted the Star Wars Holiday Special as a new form of mental torture to replace the now out-of-vogue waterboarding.

We’ve put together an more in-depth video review of this classic, we hope you enjoy. “Happy “Life Day!”
