Titled “A Disturbance in The Force,” this upcoming documentary will delve into the behind-the-scenes story of how this 1978 explosion of cheesiness came to be.

While the Star Wars franchise has spawned numerous successful movies, TV shows, and other media, The Star Wars Holiday Special stands out as a notorious misfire.

“A Disturbance in The Force” will explore how the holiday special came to be, and what factors led to its infamy. The documentary promises to provide an in-depth look at the creative process behind the special, as well as the various challenges and obstacles that the production team faced along the way. Viewers can expect to hear from a wide range of interviewees, including famous comedians like Weird Al Yankovic, Gilbert Gottfried, and Paul Scheer, as well as Star Wars insiders like Bonnie Burton and Miki Herman.

Directed by Jeremy Coon and Steve Kozak, “A Disturbance in The Force” is set to make its premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) later this year. With its behind-the-scenes insights and star-studded lineup of interviewees, this documentary is sure to provide a fascinating glimpse into one of the most notorious productions in Star Wars history.
