The Star Wars Holiday Special w/ the Original 1978 Commercials (FULL MOVIE) what a time capsule!
i have no words for how incredible horribly wonderfully awful and embarrassing this is. the commericials. omg. ohhhh. myyyyy. gggggod. scenes of wookies that go on forrrrrrrrever. an awkward harrison ford.
i can't believe i hadn't seen this until today. i am in shock.

i cannot stress enough how you MUST watch this if you are a star wars fan.

"This is the full 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special. The Star Wars Holiday Special is a 1978 American television special set in the Star Wars galaxy. The special is notorious for its negative reception. Anthony Daniels, in a documentary promoting the worldwide tour of Star Wars: In Concert, notes with a laugh that the Star Wars universe includes "The horrible Holiday Special that nobody talks about". George Lucas had limited involvement with the film's production, and was unhappy with the results. The Star Wars Holiday Special has never been re-telecast or officially released on home video.


with bea arthur, and jefferson starship!!!!
you cannot make this up!
it's.....unbelievable.

the commercials for GE and car manufacturers and bell telephone and pantyhose.

and omg, the bizarre wookie ritual at the end for "life" day as they all wear red robes and walk into the sun!

what a christmas special!

enjoy!

Saw it when it aired. The big buzz at the time was getting our first look at Boba Fett :)

ya, that's part of this that gets remembered the most.

but the rest of it....chewie's grandfather "itchy" and the weird "fantasy woman" singing to him in the virtual reality machine thng?

just all of it. i don't even know where to begin.

and the COMMERCIALS...god, it was hard to watch those because it was all about keeping jobs here, and now all those jobs are gone. it was haunting to see those.

And some folk thought The Phantom Menace was the black sheep of the Star Wars family.

Great pantyhose ad though!

i know it's so so bad.
and the fact that it was done in all seriousness.

after everyone comes back from the bar/party tonight, i recommend watching this "tipsy"

although that might make it more inbearable,
my mnd is still trying to process what i just saw.

and i didn't know the star wars collection made a toy TRASH COMPACTOR. wow. want.

I remember watching this as a kid. No way could I sit through it now.

I do have the Rifftrax version though. If you haven't seen that, you should get it.

You can probably still find it on their website. There might be a torrent floating around too, given the time of year.

OMG!!!!!!

No one will believe this, but I was actually thinking of this show about a month ago. (Should I admit this?)

Horrendous, horrendous, horrendous!

Good God in Heaven, this had to be the worst production in TV history. I remember watching this live with family and friends... all of us were doing the 70's version of "WTF"?!!!! (Which is the same as today's WTF, but with longer hair).

I am just as convinced now as I was then that, "They"... "Had something"... on every single cast member of that amazingly horrible show in order to force them to perform it.

No amount of money would compel such accomplished actors to lower themselves to such professionally suicidal drivel.

Normally, at this point, I would say, "AMAZING"! But really, to describe this show, it would be far more accurate to say, "APPALLING"!

As for the commercials.... umm... I think I need a moment.... OK, I guess we were, by that point, indoctrinated. I don't recall thinking they were "unusual". (An old lady buying Fruit of the Loom underwear???? again... WTF?!)

OP! Thank you! I think... :)
