    Lumpy tribute?, Star Wars Holiday Special should be called "take your life day"!!!

    [image=http://www.stomptokyo.com/sings/swholiday/images/lumpyclose.jpg]

    I can't believe that this piece of crap ever got made. I went to www.StarWars.com and did a search for Lumpy. He is no where to be seen [image=http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/jocastanu/img/movie_sm.jpg] Madame Jocasta Nu would have told us that if it was not in the data banks it did not exist.

    [image=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/90/Tv_star_wars_holiday_special_life_day.jpg] Here it is again, This time Chewbacca is wearing clothes. It's a sad sad day for Star Wars fans.

    To poke fun at "The Holiday Special", the bastard child of the Star Wars Universe.
    To kick a dead horse, I don't blame Lucas for not wanting to release this thing on DVD.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't see the humour in this.

    That's not Chewie in the red dress, it's his wife, Malla.

    And say what you will about THS, I'll take it over AOTC any day. Long live THS!

    Chewie didn't wear any clothes in the holiday special. The only item Chewie wears is his trademark bandolier with leather pouch.

    I stand corrected, dress-wearing Chewie it is. Go to http://www.starwarsholidayspecial.com/photos/wookiee_family.htm
    for pictures of the Chewie clan. Wife Malla's face/head is significantly different than the red-dress-wearing-wookie in the group shot posted above. For example:[image=http://www.starwarsholidayspecial.com/images/photos/wookiee_family/malla.jpg]

    Personally, I don't have a problem with The Holiday Special. To me, it merely shows the day in the life of a typical star wars family. Nothing fancy, just the character's day to day lives, which people seem to not accept. People seem to have a hard time accepting that the characters WOULD have normal lives outside of what you typically see.

    No.people have a hard time accepting that the special is badly written, badly acted, and just plain silly .
    Come on, Lucas blew it big time with this by not exercising any control over it.
    I am not a Lucas basher, but this "George can do no wrong" attitude is silly.

    Lucas didn't do it.He only authorized it, and wrote the story. He was not in charge of production. All I am saying is that the holiday special, despite who worked on it, has its merits. Anyone who can't have fun with it takes Star Wars way too seriously. Look, the fact is, people don't have the exciting lives you see in the main films. They would naturally have quite boring lives like people in the real world can. Plus you judge this against the movues, which is noit a step in the right direction. You expect too much, and that doesn't help. Just learn to appreciate it for what it is, not what you may want it to be.
