    My brother and I keep trying to get his wife to watch it. "You gotta see Luke and his busted nose!" We fast-forwarded through the songs and cringed our way through the squicky Mermeia sequence. However, the cartoon was totally worth it and the cantina sequence (and its song) is possibly one of the better live-action sequences. The song was catchy, though watching Krelman drink through his head was... icky.

    I saw that Holiday Special when it aired in 1978. Gaaaaah! SW was a shock-wave of hyper-coolness that blasted through the fan world in 1977. We were desperate for any new SW. Empire could not come soon enough. And then we got the Holiday Special . . . . wow, we all plummeted to earth after seeing that.

    I remember seeing it when it first aired, and yeah, it was pretty hokey. I don't remember too much of it. I vaguely remember the cantina sequence. Considering I'm one of the few who actually likes Jar Jar Binks, I'm sure I can find something good in it.

    The cartoon was pretty cool, although the drawing style made my eye twitch, and the cantina scene with Bea Arthur singing is worth watching. Those were the two things that we didn't fast-forward, besides the main 'story'. My friend will probably get me to watch it again with him this year, but this year we can buy booze and drink our way through it.

    Anyways. Back to the main topic. All the rumors flying around make me want to smash my head on my desk (I'm young. I was not exposed to this durring the prequels). I can't believe people believing anything any "unnamed but reliable source" says. First of all, I doubt Disney knows exactly what they are doing yet. Secondly, this is Disney and a lot of LFL are probaly still working for them. These people know how to keep things under wraps!

    Indeed. I'm trying not to fall into any of these rumors. I won't believe anything until it's gone through the Lit forum and Wookieepedia. If we believe it, then it must be true.

    I suspect I'm beating a dead horse, but what the heck.

    To the melody of The Times They Are a-Changin by Bob Dylan:

    Star Wars Is a-Changing


    Come gather 'round people, for who would have thought
    That Lucas was selling what Disney has bought?
    Will they ditch the EU as some say they ought?
    You know fans are already raging
    That the love they invested will all be for naught
    And Star Wars - will it be changing?

    'Twas 'Seventy-Seven when Star Wars premiered
    In those days "A New Hope" had yet to appear
    Then Empire and Jedi did bring up the rear
    The trilogy prefectly ending
    But Star Wars ain't over, no, never you fear
    Yes, Star Wars - it was just starting

    Next Heir and the Glove would continue the plot
    And one was made canon; the other was not
    But bits of the Glove made it into the pot
    For somebody thought it worth saving
    That's why Star Wars canon's as big as a Hutt
    For Star Wars - it was expanding

    Along came the Prequels and Lucas declared
    That Luke, though a hero, was only the heir -
    That Star Wars was all about Ani's despair,
    His fall, and eventual saving
    Luke's just a footnote, if anyone cares
    And Star Wars - it was a-changing

    The Sequels are coming - just look at those memes
    Now is this a nightmare or every fan's dream?
    But nothing is fixed till it's shown on the screen
    Till then it's all just speculating
    So let's cross our fingers till Twenty-Fifteen
    When Star Wars - it may be changing
