A Disturbance in the Force trailer explores
the Star Wars Holiday Special
More than 40 years since the first-ever Star Wars Holiday Special
had debuted on CBS in 1978, and despite the TV special's infamous
legacy, fans can't seem to forget this unique piece of content
within the sci-fi franchise. 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. The announcement also came
with the release of the documentary's first trailer which you can
now check out below, teasing the holiday special's impact in pop

Trailer: (2mins 46secs)

A Disturbance in the Force documentary is still currently in
production with Coon and Kozak trying to get in touch with more
crew members of the special and are also aiming to secure
potential interviews with Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill or even
The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau.

"Most attention on the Holiday Special just focuses on how bad it
is and doesn't go deeper," Coon said in a statement. "Our film is
not going to be 90 minutes of dumping on it because no one wants
to watch that. We're gone really deep in the research and like an
onion, there are a lot more layers as to how the Special happened
than you would expect."

He teased, "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. 
The recordings include others who passed away that we thought
we'd never be able to give a voice in the film."

The docufilm is produced by Kyle Newman and Adam F. Goldberg. The
directors are hoping to release the film just in time for next
year's Life Day celebration.

Directed by Steve Binder, the Star Wars Holiday Special was said
to be set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes
Back and was centered around Chewbacca's Wookie tradition of Life
Day. It featured the franchise' main stars including Mark Hamill,
Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and
more. Due to its negative reception, the cast and George Lucas
have always been trying to deny or forget the special's existence
whenever it is being brought up to them.

Star Wars have recently scored another holiday special on Disney+
titled The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, which is now available
for streaming, where Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Rose Tico and
Chewbacca have gathered together to celebrate Life Day.
