Face-Off: Most Embarrassing 'Star Wars' TV Movie

by urbanemovies | created - 2 months ago | updated - 2 months ago | Public

In April 2021, Disney quietly made its long banished made-for-television 'Star Wars' movies available for streaming on Disney+. While, the two Ewok-themed broadcast TV movie installments are available to stream unedited; subscribers are only able to stream the animated short, “The Story of the Faithful Wookiee” portion of 'The Star Wars Holiday Special'. No official statement been made about whether the reprieve is temporary or permanent with questions regarding their ongoing future availability still unanswered. Star Wars fans are advised to watch them while they can, as their availability may be short-lived.

Disney's LucasFilm for decades has heard calls to make the 'Star Wars' TV movies available. More recently, they have faced mounting pressure to stream the titles via an online petition. The noteworthy policy reversal was buried in a monthly press release among the list of other newly added Disney+ streaming titles. Since, the three titles are the lowest IMDb rated movies of the entire 'Star Wars' movie franchise; one hardly could be surprised by Disney's failure to trumpet the move or their attempt to hide it in plain sight. In 2004, one of these titles proved particularly humiliating, when it was named "The Worst Two Hours of Television, Ever" in the book, "What Were They Thinking: The 100 Dumbest Events in Television History".

In your opinion, which 'Star Wars' made-for-television movie is the most embarrassing installment of the previously banished LucasFilm TV broadcast movies?
