How To Watch The Star Wars Holiday Special Free On Roku

Leiaand3po*UPDATE* 12-24-15 It looks like Disney took down the video mentioned in this article even though it had been on YouTube close to a year.

With all the hype of this weekends box office record breaker Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it might be time to watch what is considered by some (including Star Wars creator George Lucas) as the worst Star Wars film ever, the made for TV Star Wars Holiday Special.

To watch this awful gem all you need is the YouTube channel app on your Roku.

If you don’t already have it you can add it from your channel store or by clicking here and logging into your Roku account.

Once you you go to your YouTube channel just search for “The Star Wars Holiday Special (Full Movie)”, you should see a video uploaded by Thomas Searle. This is a full version with very nice quality. It has been up since February of last year so I am assuming Disney/Lucasfilm has no problem with this cut or it would have been taken down by now.

With the 90% of the original cast plus Bea Arthur, Art Carney, Harvey Korman and Jefferson Starship you won’t want to miss this.

If you are away from your Roku and would like to watch it online you can click here and watch it directly on the YouTube site.
