LEGO-sized Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose and the droids will reunite to celebrate Life Day in The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special now available to stream on Disney+. "But there's all sorts of other media, particularly now with digital formats, that I'm so happy, and grateful that I'm a part of it" said Daniels to a question on his retirement from the character and Star Wars.
I have never watched the Star Wars Holiday Special and likely never will, given that new owners Disney are also unlikely to ever release this real turd - or have perhaps already burnt every known copy to ensure it never gets out there in totality. "Most of the crew are proud not only of the special but of the TV variety genre that so few know about today, so they enjoy reminiscing about it", Kozak said, with Coon adding: "We were also able to find a never before released audio interview with Peter Mayhew talking about the Special along with over 15 hours of audio interviews recorded over twenty years ago with over a dozen people who worked on the Holiday Special". Life is not over, the films may be taking a back seat for 3PO, for a very long time, I would think. But she has to make it back to her own timeline to make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit. "And I do want to go on looking after '3PO because he needs looking after".
So, it sounds like Anthony Daniels will try to stick around the Star Wars franchise for as long as he can.
What do you make of this news? Now, Star Wars fans will finally have the chance to get an in-depth look at the behind-the-scenes story of how the Star Wars Holiday Special came to be with io9 bringing word that filmmaking duo Jeremy Coon and Steve Kozak are currently working on new documentary film about the special titled A Disturbance in the Force.
