Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) - 2 Versions DVD
Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) DVD
Includes the original TV Version and the remastered version with commentary
Luke Skywalker and Han Solo battle evil Imperial forces to help Chewbacca reach his imperiled family on the Wookiee planet - in time for Life Day, their most important day of the year!
The story centers around Chewbacca’s family: Itchy, Lumpy, and Mala. They grunt about their tree-top dwelling, waiting for Chewie to come home for the Life Day holidays. Chewie’s stuck with Han, though. So they entertain themselves by watching a Jefferson Starship performance. I’m really not making this up. Chewie’s dad watches a virtual stripper performance and gets quite… excited. It’s not all sex and rock n’ roll, however. The Imperials come looking for the wanted criminal Chewbacca at the family’s home and there are some real tear-jerking moments when the Stormtroopers trash Lumpy’s room.
In the middle, there’s a complete (and really well done) animated segment, which features the first appearance of Boba Fett. All ends well when the heroes arrive home. Princess Leia decides to sing for everyone—to the John Williams Star Wars theme music!
Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Anthony Daniels
