I am lying, of course. I am a terrible human being with an even worse sense of humor. The 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special is absolutely awful. This made for TV production is so bad it may ruin the entire Star Wars Universe for you.
If you are looking to purchase a copy online, don’t waste your time. To this day, George Lucas and Disney have never released a copy in any format. Don’t try to find it on TV, either. The special has never aired again on TV since its original air date of November 17, 1978.
So if you want to be a TRUE Star Wars fan and know the complete Star Wars story … you need to go through the punishment of watching this film. Channel your inner Jedi. You can do this. As Yoda said, A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.
