Star Wars Holiday Special: Watch it in All its Glory!

So as an early Christmas gift to all of the Indie Film Hustlers and Star Wars fans out there I decide to give a home to the infamous 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special on Indie Film Hustle.

I have to admit I have never been able to watch it all the way through, it’s just too painful. The Star Wars Holiday Special is basically a tragedy set to film. It defies all attempts at logic and all methods of explanation. It’s like watching a train wreck…you can’t look away.

It’s fascinating how a tiny handful of Betamax and VHS recorders (kids Google Betamax if you want to laugh) back in 1978 apparently managed to record a television special that has never again been officially released within the U.S.

Is the Star Wars Holiday Special (some know it as the Star Wars Christmas Special) the most duplicated home video recording of all time? Probably.

Considering the technical limitations inherent in a 30-year-old home video master, there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of surprisingly high-quality versions of this program floating around.

Now The Star Wars Holiday Special even lives on Youtube for all to watch and cringe! Enjoy my Jedi Junkies with the classic that George Lucas wants to go away but never will.

The Hypothetical Star Wars Holiday Special 2015

The good folks over at Funny or Die did this AMAZING Hypothetical Star Wars Holiday Special. Too funny for words and actually better than the original, depending on how you look at it. Starring Jason Alexander, Lydia Hearst, Keith David, Train, and DJ Qualls,

Before you see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, find out if BB8 makes it home for Droid Day in the only holiday special based solely on rumor and conjecture about the upcoming film. Featuring a cavalcade of stars and a very special performance from “Train.”
