It has existed for nearly 40 years, but "The Star Wars Holiday Special" has been little more than myth or legend for most fans of the galaxy far, far away.  It brought together all the original stars of A New Hope, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca, James Earl Jones as the voice of Darth Vader, Bea Arthur as the cantina barmaid & Art Carney as the convenience store clerk & in-home deliveryman.  Wait--those last two weren't in Star Wars...were they?

The show aired on network TV one time ONLY back on November 15, 1978. Since that day, all involved have pretended it doesn't exist.

The SLC Fanboys found it on YouTube, watched it, and are now here to give you their thoughts, just in time for the 2016 holidays! You'll think we're making it up. Sadly, we are not.

Let's just say there's a reason Disney & Lucasfilm are always trying to make the video disappear.
