Opinion-Star Wars: The Holiday Special – A Forgotten Foray into the Star Wars Universe

The level of fandom that rushed to see it over and over was unprecedented. In a strange effort to capitalize on that popularity, and provide families with some fun Christmas viewing, George Lucas made Star Wars: The Holiday Special.
