In a recent virtual chat with the School of Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California, Hamil opened up to the creation of A special holiday of Star Wars. The special feature TV show aired on CBS in November 1978 and has since easily become the most hated star Wars movie. Hamil immediately had a bad feeling about it.

When [George Lucas] He called me and he said, “Well, I heard you don’t want to do that,” I said, “That’s awful! Is not star Wars. It’s like Bob Hope’s specialty. “

He once said, “If I could find every copy of this holiday specifically, I would smash them with a hammer,” Hamil explained. “I said, ‘George, we have to have this, because it shows that everyone is infallible.
