Even if you’ve never seen the Star Wars Holiday Special, you likely know what it is. It’s an infamous 1978 TV special featuring the cast of Star Wars coked-up out of their minds, celebrating “Life Day,” which is the Star Wars equivalent of Christmas. It was such a disaster that George Lucas, who didn’t have much to do with the special to begin with, wanted it blinked out of existence. And while there are bootleg copies floating around, there’s never been an official release. Now, the documentary A Disturbance in the Force will tell the behind-the-scenes story of how this thing got made.
