HOLLYWOOD – A fan campaign launched today to raise money to finance a remake of the Star Wars Holiday Special.
The Star Wars Holiday Special is going to be remade if a group of fans on the internet have their way. The 1978 TV movie was a science fiction musical extravaganza made before George Lucas realized that YouTube might exist. Large decried as a low point of the franchise’s history, a group of fans are now trying to raise funds to remake the movie for cinematic release. We spoke to Ginty Meatpants about the project:
We started with the idea that we wanted to remake The Last Jedi because that film was so … [makes vomity sounds]! But then someone said what about Attack of the Clones? and we realized that we should really start there. And then someone else said what about Return of the Jedi. We could take out the bit where Chewbacca pretends to be Tarzan and the fucking Ewoks. So we decided to do that instead. And then someone piped up about the Holiday Special and so we’re going to do that one first.
I know. It’s going to take a lot of time and money but I think once we explain to Disney they’ll be fine. After all, we’ve got lots of time on our hands. We don’t have you know girlfriends, or friend friends. So we’ve got time.
So you think that they’ll agree?
Yeah, as long as they don’t ask that bitch Kathleen Kennedy.
But she’s the producer.
Yeah, but don’t tell her.
