    Seriously was the first one not bad enough?  For those of you who don't know, years ago in a galaxy far far away, there was a Star Wars Holiday special released on TV between the original Star Wars film and Empire Strikes Back.  The special was not well received, and it was only aired once on TV, as George Lucas was so ashamed of it that he personally tried to get rid of all copies of that special.  Even admitting in interviews how he wishes he could take all the copies of that special  and burn them.   However,  in spite his best efforts, he couldn't stop fans from distributing pirated bootleg copies of the special.  The special is infamous among Star Wars fans as being one of the worst things ever associated with the franchise that even Lucas is ashamed of it.  Think about that for a moment folks.  This is the same guy who created Jar Jar Binks, and even tried to make him an iconic comic relief in star wars similar to C-3PO and R2-D2, yet he's personally ashamed of that special?   This is the same man that thought it was a great idea to make Indiana Jones:  Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and even begged Spielberg to come back to direct it, yet he finds this holiday special to be bad? The same guy that thought making Howard the Duck into a movie was a good idea?  That guy?  Yeah, it was pretty bad. 

    But apparently Jon Favreau has been quoted in interviews saying he would love to do a new Star Wars holiday special.  What are your thoughts?  Would you be down for a new Star Wars holiday special?  Or do you think they should just let sleeping dogs lie as the last one was bad enough?  Please discuss.

    Without the comedic stylings of the late Bea Arthur, Art Carney, or Harvey Korman, why would they even try?
