Well I'm totally on board with doing it, as long as we don't all get arrested.

Oh no - we're going to jail just for thinking about doing it.

This is from seven years ago in 2011, before the dark times of 2015.

Go to 2 min. 54 sec. in the video.

Apparently there is an actual script for THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL. Anthony Daniels says he possesses one and seems to claim that it is about the size of an old school phone book with a cover that is either embossed or printed with a black and silver design. What an amazing object. Acquiring it would be like having the Spear of Destiny or something.

Is the script different from the finished product?

Threepio seems to imply that it's about the size of a phone book, so is it highly detailed about every second of the show or is it full of deleted scenes or things never shot or things for guest stars that didn't come to fruition?

Anthony Daniels said he tried to open it, but couldn't.

Who can say?

He couldn't even remember that the Yule-type holiday being celebrated was Life Day. He says, "It was Wookie Pride Day or something."

Dude, that was a truly psychedelic experience just viewing it.

Imagine having been directly involved?

Here's another tidbit. Anthony Daniels said in that interview that Carrie Fisher was singing "a capella" on set. I was wondering why that might be, since there was an orchestra playing that slow version of the Star Wars theme. The Carrie Fisher quotes in this article are from the morning of that very day of the shoot. She says that she had been wired with an ear piece for that number which was to be shot later in the afternoon.

Hilariously, she wasn't supposed to be singing at all.

Merchandise specifically for the Holiday Special was planned. Kenner was to produce the toys.

I wonder if ANY of those toys exists?  Like, as a prototype or anything?

Forgot just how long it was - took all day to render.  Should be up either late tonight, or tomorrow morning.

Also, had to edit out most of the references to "Wookie Kwanzaa"... but not all of them.
