The Star Wars Holiday Special …Is it really that bad?
Is it really that bad? Yes. Yes it is. With a few moments that were faintly amusing. Created using the real-to-goodness original cast of Star Wars from A New Hope, The Star Wars Holiday Special was an earnest 1978 TV movie featuring awful production values, clearly stoned actors, and some really cracked-out looking Wookiees.

5 Reasons Kylo Ren Is a Good Villain
Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker opens soon. The wait is finally over. The Skywalker family will wrap up with this end to the storyline (though not the series).
