Merry Christmas, Programs!
I had to save the best for last, November 17th, 1978, this beast was unleashed to the world:
I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing this. I have read about it over the years but could not find a copy of it. I now see several videos of it on YouTube.
For those that have never seen it before here is the synopsis:
“Chewbacca and Han Solo try to get to the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk to celebrate Life Day, but are impeded by an Imperial blockade. Chewie’s family passes the time with various forms of entertainment.”
It had all the stars from Star Wars!
Plus guest stars Harvey Korman, Beatrice Arthur:
Chewbacca’s family, Malla, Itchy, and Lumpy!
The Jefferson Starship!?!
Scum from the cantina: Plus, a cartoon with Boba Fett!
Did they model Vice Admiral Holdo after Ackmena?
I have only seen a trailer of this so far and it looks as bad as everyone has said over the years.
I will be watching it tonight for the first time.
