* Some of it was probably also part of the unseen torture that Darth Vader used on Princess Leia in ''ANewHope'', especially the parts with Chewie's family. The scene at the end where she's singing? She ''is'' singing, alright... alone in her cell under the influence of whatever that hovering droid injected her with.

[[WMG: Life Day is the one day when all the galaxy's drugs are made legal by the Empire.]]
Like a toned-down, more hilarious version of Film/ThePurge. Plus, it would explain about 99% of the special itself.

''Franchise/StarWars'' as a franchise goes along like it normally would, as does for the most part its fandom and expanded universe...but in the 1990s, rumors start to go about in the more hardcore sects of the fandom about a holiday special that supposedly aired in the late 1970s, how apparently it had Bea Arthur and Art Carney in it, and Wookies talking for 20 minutes. But, sadly, no known copies of the special exist, and the only thing people have to go on is testimonials or maybe some still photos.

** Television shows were still being distributed via 16mm film in the late 70's. It would not be unlikely if an enterprising Star Wars fan got a hold of a network print and made copies.

GeorgeLucas will state so in his will. Not that that will have any legal backing, but they will do so out of respect for the dead.

[[WMG: The announcer in the placeholder commercial is Boba Fett]]
The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6re5fLsELE commercial]] was animated by Nelvana, and the PSA the audio comes from must also be animated by Nelvana. It's random, but it might be plausible. The backwards part is Boba speaking in Mandalorian, and the forwards part is Boba speaking in English. The voiceover sounds nothing like Don Francks, but still...

[[WMG: Mark Hamill crashed his car on purpose to get out of the special.]]
It didn't work (and it necessitated some truly frightening makeup), but it was worth a try.

* It's an Imperial propaganda film that was a botched attempt to discredit the Rebellion in the wake of the Death Star's destruction and how Life Day was portrayed was just typical Imperial racism. Instead, it became a source of SnarkBait in-universe and Vader then gave the director a [[YouHaveFailedMe telekinetic throat hug]].

** It's even more likely it was used too as part of the torture used on Han Solo in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack''.

** Because there's always one nutter uploading it to YouTube for the sheer heck of it/to satisfy people's curiosity that is the exception that proves the rule, 'tis why.
