The Star Wars Holiday Special’s Force Awakens-Style Trailer Causes a Great Disturbance in All of Us

But never a greater disturbance than the special itself. *Shiver.*

And you thought George Lucas waited until the prequels to ruin Star Wars.

No, it started much earlier in the Star Wars Holiday Special, and now the special has come back to ruin your cherished memories of the Force Awakens trailer with one, simple video. “The Star Wars franchise is about to reinvent and reinvigorate itself with “The Force Awakens.” But let’s not forget the importance of the Star Wars Holiday Special. This week’s Vulture Remix does the important public service of combining them.”

But hey, at least this trailer is for something you can watch right now, thanks to the magic of the Internet. … But don’t say we didn’t warn you.

He lives in North Carolina with Lisa Brown (his wife) and Liz Lemon (his dog), both of whom are the best, and he will never stop reminding The Last Jedi's detractors that Luke Skywalker's pivotal moment in Return of the Jedi was literally throwing his lightsaber away and refusing to fight.
