    I'd imagine there's issues with rights for musical performances and stuff. Can't imagine they were thinking much of rereleases in 1978 or that Lucas tried to retain them after.

    I wouldn't be shocked to find out that Lucas actually made Disney agree to never release The Holiday Special as a condition of the sale. The Special Editions remaining the official version of the OT is definitely one such condition that Disney agreed to.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    Also, for all that the Holiday special has a curiosity factor to it, it would only hurt the brand if it saw a wide release. It was shelved forever for a reason. You'd have to put a warning label dislaimer on the front saying it's awful, and that still wouldn't help.

    More likely to see the Droids tv series and the Ewok movies and Ewoks cartoon to get a re-release push. And those aren't going to happen either.

    Doesn't making a dedicated parody hurt the brand almost as much?

    They're openly acknowledging that a movie about an elderly Wookie masturbating is a part of the Star Wars canon.

    From here on out whenever anyone mentions "The Star Wars Christmas Special", by default media is going to point to the 2020 lego version and start pretending the old one never existed. You'll have to specify Star Wars Christmas Special 1978, or original, and that's just going to fade eventually.

    Presumably the lego version isn't going to have a five minute sequence of raw Wookie dialogue, watching porn, Bea Arthur musical numbers, or half the cast obviously coked out of their minds.

    Well, I mean, it actually MIGHT have some of that in parody fashion, but it'll almost certainly do it in a way that makes if actually entertaining and not cringe.

    It also sounds like its going to be a greatest hits clip show of the movies with a minor narrative framing sequence.

    I mean, the Muppets have had like 7 Christmas specials, you have to really know what you're hunting for to arrive at the John Denver one. Except there's actually TWO John Denver specials with the Muppets, and one of them has "Holiday" in the title and its NOT the Christmas one, so you REALLY need to know what you're looking for.

    And good luck if you want to find a specific Chipmunks Christmas album, they've had nine of them.

    The more things they throw the same name onto over the more decades, the more it actually buries the oldest one. Who even remembers The Ghostbusters exists except as a asterisk to The REAL Ghostbusters?

    That's kind of a worrying decision and I have to ask if the writers plan to make her a proper comedic antagonist or just a figurehead for diversity (which would be a very boring mistake).

    Does Warner Bros have a better history than Disney on this, or are we in for another John Boyega scenario where minority characters are brought in for show only to later be sidelined and revealed as a waste of the audience's time?

    Was that what happened or just the end result of a spate of movies which were poorly planned out?

    Even in the first movie he was just there to serve the white female lead.

    Even then still more relevance than what he got in the 2nd and 3rd movies.

    Yeah but that wasn't nearly good enough.

    The most interesting character in the movie was relegated to the role of "bland supportive friend" while a Mary Sue took the lead and did everything, including somehow being the vessel for us to experience the tragedy of Han Solo's death despite her barely knowing him (that role really needed to go to Luke, Leia, Chewie or Lando).

    Where was Lando anyway?

    He was literally used in the U.S. as minority bait which is really obvious with how the Chinese Poster doesn't emphasize him at all. It would have been ok if his character ever amounted to anything, especially seeing as he represented the most fascinating possible character and maintained that through the entire first movie, even as the attention continually shifted away from him and towards Rey.

    I find it bizarre how often Finns role in TLJ is just dismissed outright as a "disservice to the character" or similar. Whatever you may say about Canto Bight and how much it "matters" to the plot, Finn still has a super-clear and logical character arc; He goes from someone just tagging along because he likes Rey to someone fully invested in the Rebel Cause, which all happened independently from Rey. Finn was set up as a n enemy soldier come true believer, someone who could insipre others to join the fight. Too bad that didn't happen.
