The Tuesday Videos: A Long Time Ago, In a Galaxy Far, Far Away…

I know how some of you hate it when I theme these things, but Christmas is on the way and I’ve built up a LOT of videos to get through. This week is all Star Wars… specifically all Star Wars Holiday Special. That’s right, the long decried and nearly as long denied (by Lucas) TV special that Georgie Boy made back when he was certain that Star Wars was going to flop is here for you to watch in all its grisly glory. For those of you out there who have never seen it and wondered, “How could anything possibly be as bad as all that?” let me just say that you are in for a treat of awfulness. It’s not boring, exactly, but it IS weird and exceedingly off-brand.

On the other hand, it really does explain the prequel trilogy, as a mind who could devise something like this would undoubtedly be capable of nearly any depth of banality. (Kid of unfair since Lucas didn’t have much to do with it. And hey! Introduction of Boba Fett!)

So… uh… enjoy!

(The whole thing is pretty long. Feel free to watch a little and come back later, after you’ve salted your eyes.)

  1. Thanks. I’ve always wanted to see this. I’m not sure why.
    But I thought Lucas still insisted this WAS canon, just like the two Ewok World TV movies.

  2. I’ve only gone through part 1 so far.

    It says much about the (lack of) Wookie (sp?) culture that they find recordings of human gymnastic dance routines entertaining.
