You’ve already binge watched all six episodes of the Star Wars saga and seen the new film The Force Awakens, but you still want more Star Wars this holiday season. Luck – as well as the Force – is with you my, SW-addicted friend. I present to you the The Star Wars Holiday Special. Never heard of it? You probably missed it the first time, as it was made for American television and released in November 17, 1978. Set in the Star Wars galaxy, this film features the main cast from the first Star Wars film released (Episode IV).
The story line of this festive holiday special goes something like this: Chewbacca and Han Solo visit Chewbacca’s home world to celebrate Life Day. They’re chased by agents of the Galactic Empire, who are searching for members of the Rebel Alliance on the planet. The program also features many other Star Wars characters, including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Darth Vader. To prevent spoilers, I’ll leave it at that – you can watch the entire film below. Enjoy!
