Princess Leia Sings Star Wars

The animated Clone Wars movie reveals George Lucas' deep commitment to destroy his entire Universe. We first suspected this with the advent of the Ewoks, and then the prequels assured us that all of Star Wars' child-like wonder was being emptied out like the last few coins from a broken piggy bank.

We should have realized it sooner, I guess, but we were kids and didn't see the signs of the cheesiness that was to come:

Happy Life Day, everyone.


  1. Oh my heck! What is this from?

  2. It's from the "Star Wars Holiday Special" of course. First appearance of Boba Fett, by the way. He doesn't sing or dance, though. Lame.

  3. Leia totally loves that Wookie. You can tell by the look in her eyes...and the heavy petting. Thanks for posting, it's been awhile since I watched the "holiday" special.

  4. That was beautiful. I teared up a bit. I love how C3PO was swaying to the lullaby that put Harrison Ford to sleep, apparently. It's not quite "Singin in the Rain", but I am sure Carrie Fisher's mother was proud!
