Star Wars Holiday Special The Star Wars Holiday Special was a two-hour television special (including commercials) set in the Star Wars galaxy. It was broadcast in its entirety in the United States only once on Friday, November 17, 1978 on CBS-TV from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time (EST). In it, Chewbacca and Han Solo visit Kashyyyk, Chewbacca's home world, to celebrate Life Day. Along the way, they are pursued by agents of the Galactic Empire who are searching for rebels on the planet. The special introduces three members of Chewbacca's family: his father Attichitcuk, his wife Mallatobuck, and his son Lumpawarrump.

here's a wee bit of trivia:

~Carrie Fisher has made claims that she never remembers working in any Star Wars-themed holiday special. This possibly backs up the commonly believed rumor that she was on drugs through the filming of the special. In the special she visibly trips over a piece of scenery, and her eyes are unusually dilated, considering she is in front of stage lighting. In other interviews Fisher has only said that she was 'highly medicated'.

~When asked about his involvement with the special, Mark Hamill has reported that the producers asked him to sing a song for one scene. He refused.

Please!!!. If anyone is thinking of making a Star Wars musical, make it a hundred times better than this offering.

This is one of those WTF? TV moments, though it doesn't surprise me that they made this show. Star Wars was the number one big thing in those days, oh, I remember it well! I was in 8th grade when this show was aired...
