It’s been thirty years, but the anniversary went by with only a little fanfare. On November 17th, 1978, fans were inflicted with the great pain of The Star Wars Holiday Special. It sounded good on paper – a bit of a variety show revolving around familiar Star Wars characters, Harvey Korman, Art Carney, and others, and the original stars. Too bad it was horrifyingly awful. It’s never been aired again, and although it seems that Lucas and others will now at least admit it exists, they still don’t plan to release it…ever.
