Holiday Videos 6: A Very Wookie Holiday

Merry Kwanankkamas!

On the night before the birth of baby Jesus (from a woman and God - man had nothing to do with it), we present you with a video from a long time ago (30 years!) and a galaxy far, far away (whatever no-longer-existent sound stage this was made on): "Happy Life Day", from the Star Wars Holiday special! OMFG, I know!

Can you believe Harrison Ford would get down with this? Or the guy who played Chewbacca? I mean, of course C3PO would do anything for a spacebuck, but Chewie? I thought he/she/it was incorruptible!

Anyway, I didn't even watch the whole video, but it's hilarious. Carrie Fisher sings, there's an original trilogy flashback, and a wookie family in the suburbs of Endor say grace before eating their bantha meat or snowglobes or whatever.

  1. Oh my God. I had always heard of the Star Wars Christmas special, but I've never actually seen it. So freaking Bizzare. I think they stoped playing whatever song she was singing and just forced in the Star Wars them half-way through.

    It's too bad this didn't catch on a little more. I would have loved to see a Lord of the Rings Christmas special. Can you imagine Gimli doing a little gig while Legolas is singing.
