I feel like the holiday special is actually one of the most important entries in the entire Star Wars canon because, other than the scenes by the lake on Naboo, it is the only time you really get a feel for the home front in these taxing times, and just how much is at stake to be lost by the regular middle-class inhabitants of the galaxy if the rebellion fails and the empire continues its crushing, authoritarian reign, not only on a galactic level but in its abuses of the personal freedoms and comforts of individuals right in their midcentury modern treehouses.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I watched the cosmic/psychedelic wookiee procession and Leia's Life Day song at least three times in a row today, so I'm counting it as a full rewatch.
I have wasted my life.
