STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Gets a Funny New Holiday Special
When the Star Wars Holiday Special was released all those years ago, we saw the warning signs that George Lucas might have been losing it. Fans let it go thinking it was some kind of fluke...then he made those prequel films.
Funny or Die has created and released a new Star Wars Holiday Special in celebration of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which comes out this week. This is just as absurd as the first one, but the fact that it’s done intentionally makes it funny and worth watching.
In the special, BB-8 is anxious to get home for a holiday called Droid Day. For some reason, Kylo Ren is accompanying him on his journey, and Captain Phasma is hunting down the droid. Why? Because the droid is so loved that she thinks he can inspire the First Order.
It's completely ridiculous, but that's the whole point!
