35th Anniversary Tribute for Star Wars Holiday Special

I dropped by Skywalking Through Neverland to talk about the Star Wars Holiday Special to commemorate its 35th anniversary. From the show notes:

Sky­walk­ing Through Nev­er­land com­mem­o­rates the 35th anniver­sary of the clas­sic Star Wars Hol­i­day Spe­cial.  This was our intro­duc­tion to Chewbacca’s wife Malla; father, Itchy and son, Lumpy as well as an ani­mated Boba Fett and a singing Princess Leia. Five super­fans dis­sect, dis­cuss and remember.

A life-long dream real­ized — we meet Har­ri­son Ford!!

We also begin a series of trivia chal­lenges. This week we put Dis­ney experts to the test. Do you know which Dis­ney movie you can find Pinoc­chio hid­den up in the rafters?
