Now THIS looks fun!   Star Wars will finally be releasing another Holiday Special…but unlike the one in 1978…this actually looks GOOD!   It’ll be the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special…and it will debut on Disney Plus on November 17th!

Of course, the words Star Wars and Holiday Special bring back nightmares to fans and George Lucas alike…because of the original from 42 years ago…which was considered a DISASTER.   Essentially, Lucas had allowed NBC to make a holiday special using his characters and storylines from Star Wars.   However, Lucas had nothing to do with writing, producing or directing what became a cosmic turd of a TV show…and that was a BIG MISTAKE.

Once Lucas saw the finished product…which was released by NBC for only one showing…he was incensed at how horrible it was.   Throughout the years, Lucas has actually tried to find copies of the special in order to destroy them.   Unfortunately for George, the video has been loaded to YouTube…so that countless generations of kids can watch the WORST Star Wars crap ever put onscreen.

Check out the new trailer below…followed by the original special!
