Okay, last week I was cruel, giving you a video offering that every fanboy who hasn’t already seen it wants to watch, and every fanboy who’s already seen it wishes they hadn’t. Kind of The Ring of Christmas specials. This week I am again benevolent, with a smorgasbord of happy, seasonal joybags for you to tear into.
We begin with what the Star Wars Christmas Special should have looked like:
In 1981 Lucas put out an album called Christmas With the Stars. Feel free to skip or just listen to a bit of this one, as it’s mostly notable for R2D2 and C3PO singing Christmas songs, and once you get past the novelty of that… well…
Annnd… here’s where it starts to get awesome.
Don’t know how long these links will be good for, so in case they’re gone and you decide to go looking on your own, the name of the vid is Gift of the Night Fury.
Now I know I’ve done these “history of Christmas” things before, but no one does it better than Kristen Stewart.
And a final bit of music to sweep you out the door, al á, the Muppets.
