Star Wars Halloween Special

In 1978, the Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS. It quickly became one of the most infamously horrible pieces of Star Wars history. (Until the prequels, that is, hey yo!) Aside from a cartoon that introduced us to Boba Fett, the television special was notoriously bad, showing us Life Day on the Wookiee home world of Kashyyyk where Bea Arthur sings musical numbers. Anyway, moving on…

In a new weird move of strange corporate synergy, Disney is going to air a Star Wars Halloween Special… on ESPN 2 on October 30th 2014. Will this new Star Wars television special go down in flames like the previous Star Wars Holiday special? Details after the jump.

Abrams has already cut a trailer, but that John Williams is writing music for it, and it’ll be out at some point before the end of the year. Is that possible? Below, we’ll present the rumor and break it down. Read More »
