Okay, I don't know if anyone here watches video reviews, but one of my favorite critics is called the Nostalgia Critic. He basically watches old bad movies and makes fun of them. Well needless to say, he reviewed a made for tv movie called "Star Wars: The Holiday Special." Apparently the film was so awful that even George Lucas admits to being ashamed of it to this day, and often goes on record to saying it doesn't actually exist within the "Star Wars" universe. Well after hearing how notoriously bad it was, I decided to check it out for myself...and you know something...HE WAS RIGHT. That film wasn't just bad, but it gave a whole new definition to the word, "Bad." Hell, I'm still confused on why people still saw the "Empire Strikes Back", after this garbage tv movie, "Star Wars: The Holiday Special" came on before it in 1978. Seriously, I can ALWAYS find at least one..ONE..thing good about any movie, but this one doesn't really have anything. If anything, it's a piece of f***ing garbage, and Lucas SHOULD be ashamed of this piece of trash.
However, I digress. In the tv movie, the star wars characters celebrate a holiday known as "life force day." although, they never actually say why it's celebrated, or even what the history of it is, I can only assume that it's a generalized holiday to where fans of Star Wars can (insert random religious holiday here) scenario in it's attempt to appeal to various religious cultures. granted, I could be wrong on this; which why I need your help. If you happen to be a huge star wars fan, then can you tell me exactly what "life force day" is, and why it's such a big deal in the star wars universe? you'd be helping me out a lot if you did. thanks.
By the way, did you guys know that Chewie's dad has a thing for African American Earthlings? Who knew? Plus, it turns out Bea Arthur is a bartender in the Star Wars universe too!
Star Wars... I have a glass of theirs stashed somewhere. Is it worth anything?
1980, but not sure.
Edit: Very unsure. I'm still tracking back to when I last saw it.
according to imdb, the special came out on tv in 1978, and it never appeared again since. lucas even claims that he's personally ashamed of it, and I saw the film too last night...and it was bad! trust me, it's beyond bad. the only thing that was good about it was that it featured the very first appearance of boba fett, but even that's not enough to save this movie.
merry christmas wookie, house merry christmas chewie's dad(I got the ho's you requested comin by around 9!)

According to MSN, George Lucas was emotionally hurt by various fans and critics who bashed his "Star Wars" prequels, and said that he felt somewhat betrayed by them; hence he's never going to make another...

Imagine, sometime in the future if the film rights to Star Wars are sold. Would you be in favour of a reboot, similiar to Star Trek?

Star Wars wins hands down. I mean, Star Trek has Spock but that is not enough.
