What’s wrong with the Star Wars Holiday Special? I tackle that question in the first episode of my new podcast, The Jedi Beat! I’ve always been a fan of the wackiness that is the Holiday Special but I wanted to learn more about the history of how it was made. What were thinking when they decided to make half of the special in the Wookiee language, Shyriiwook? Joining me on this episode is my hilarious friend and writer/author, Bonnie Burton! She wrote a fantastic article in defense of the holiday special and she also brings a special insight since she worked at Lucasfilm for 10 years. Join us on this journey back to the summer of 1978! Listen to the episode HERE!
