Star Wars Holiday Special a made for TV Movie, which only aired once on November 17, 1978 on CTV in Canada an hour before it aired on CBS in America.  In the Star Wars Galaxy there holiday is  Life Day. Directed by Steve Binder & David Acomba with Mark Hamill as Luke Skywaker, Harrison Ford  as Han Solo, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia Organa, Darth Vader voiced by James Earl Jones and  his first credit as Vader. We also see a cartoon introducing Boba Fett. Produced By NelVana Studios in Toronto, who later would go on to produce, the Saturday morning Droids & Ewoks. Star Wars Holiday Special is considered one of the most hated films of all time. But if you sat throw Jar Jar Binks you can sit through anything.

 

 

 

This film was never released on video, word is that George Lucas wanted buy all the master tapes. So  there were only bootlegs  that were video taped when it aired. I happen to have  boughten a copy a few years back from a comic book shop. It's so bad it's good, I try to get threw it every few years.  The best part is the Bea Arthur song  Good Night But Not Goodbye.
