A low point in Star Wars history
Any nerd worth their salt has glimpsed portions of the God-awful 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special. George doesn’t want you to see it and for good reason. I’ve never been able to get all the way through it without lots and lots of scene skipping. Here’s one of the best examples of how low this “special” sank. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Bea Arthur’s cantina song. Now I love Bea as much as the next guy, but she had no place in the coolest place in Star Wars, the creature cantina. The one good thing about this clip is that we get a better look at some of the cantina’s denizens. The bad thing is that the “video” quality highlights how fake it all is. Enjoy.
