Star Wars Holiday Special

Hello out there in podcastland and welcome back to Spoilers, your bad movie review show on the RatPack Podcast Network, where your hosts have lots of opinions, but zero credentials. This week, we continue our holiday season with a request from our long time Australian listener, SeaSalt, with a made for TV movie that has become infamous: The Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978!!!! Why would you focus this whole special on the one group of characters who don’t speak English? Why aren’t there subtitles so we can understand what the Wookies are saying? Is Chewie’s dad watching porn on that VR headset? Where was Bea Arthur’s character during the cantina scene in A New Hope? Can Boba Fett’s first appearance save this monstrosity of a “film?” Find out this week, but you best be warned, there be spoilers ahead.
