Star Wars Holiday Special & Toy Drive
Star Wars Holiday Special & Toy Drive
Nerd Nite & FilmBar present Highlights from The Star Wars Holiday Special, the infamous 1978 TV movie set in the Star Wars galaxy. Chewbacca and Han Solo visit the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk to celebrate the Wookiee holiday Life Day with his family, which includes his wife Malla, his son Lumpy and his father Itchy. As Chewbacca and Han are known Rebel agents, they are pursued by the Galactic Empire, who in the process invade Chewbacca's household. The special is notorious for its negative reception and regret from Star Wars creator George Lucas. It also officially introduces the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Highlights from the special will be played in conjunction with a special presentation from local Star Wars aficionado and former Ignite Phoenix Presenter Dustin Diehl.

New Toys will be accepted and donated to Toys for Tots AZ. Patrons who donate will receive a FREE ticket to a future FilmBar Show.
