Oops! Saturday is too soon. I'm on a work deadline for Monday and will be working all weekend, taking time out only for Bruce's party, a few meals and a couple of winks.

Just a warning........this movie is BAD. not bad in a campy way, not bad in a "it's cute for kids way", ......it is horrible.

Rumor was Lucas actually tried to get all the original copies back off the market because it was so horrible. Thats why you always see 8th generation copies off TV.

Couple of points of interest though. In the original movies (before the "special edition" re-releases of Star Wars) ,Boba Fett was not seen until Empire Strikes back. But he is in the cartoon section of the Christmas Special, so technically it was the first sighting of Boba Fett.

Also, rumor is that Lucas uses the whole "wookie tree village" from the x-mas special in the upcoming 3rd prequel.

Yeah, I'm a star wars geek.

OK, this Saturday at the Pineapples' is out, I've got an email out to Bruce, but I suspect that showing it at the UGH party won't be the best option. I'll try for another venue pre-UGH (could probably just do it in my hotel room), or we can save it and do it in a few weeks at the Pineapples' (or another location, if anyone else is interested and the timing doesn't work out for the Pineapples).

BTW, a coworker just came back from Maui, and he brought me a fresh pikake lei. I'm wearing it right now, and I'm on cloud nine.

We could watch it at my place this weekend, if you don't mind driving to SF.

At ComicCon this year, they showed about 15 pieces of pre-production art of the Wookiee village from Episode III. It looks really cool, but given the big dissapointment of Ep I and (maybe to a slightly lesser degree) Ep II, I am not holding my breath...

I am feverishly working to make the UGH House partially presentable-it is suffering from a year of neglect and being used as a storage unit! I can not take any time of on Saturday--maybe Sunday? -bruce

I'm leaning towards saving it for a few weeks until the Pineapples are ready, it's too tight a squeeze this weekend with all the driving I'll be doing.

You better hang on to your video copy of that special. I've heard that Lucas has destroyed the master.

That would suprise me... Lucas is such an archivist, I can't see him destroying anything no matter how wacky it might be.

If you check out a site called www.theforce.net You can probably find more info on it there. I posted on some boards there and it seemed everyone had thought Lucas would put it out on the Trilogy DVD....guess he REALLY hates it!

I remember watching this during it's original airing as well. And, like many of you, felt very disappointed by the end.

However, they could have made Star Wars paper ass-gaskets and I would have loved it at the time.

I remember thinking that it sucked, but it was not a total loss because of the introduction of Boba Fett.

Despite all of the bad reviews, I think I'd have to get it, add it to my collection, and watch it through the eyes of an adult to be truly disgusted.

okay not really a post only dealing with the x-mas special (which I only remember chewies family and boba fett when I watched it whenever it was on TV) but here's a cool website with lots of video and picture downloads of all things star wars.

http://www.blueharvest.net/

Very informative website. Check it out.

now back to your regularly scheduled x-mas special thread...

I remember this atrocity from when it was first aired. People, leave this evil Pandora's VHS sealed and don't sully the legend!
Oh wait, Lucas already did that with ewoks and Jar-Jar. Never mind.
