15 reasons the Star Wars Holiday Special is actually terrible

15. Lumpy

For thirty minutes of this stupid thing, we have to just watch Lumpy try and talk to his mother and his grandfather. I say try because we don’t know what in the world they are talking about. Part of the easiness of Han and Chewie is that we don’t need subtitles for Chewie because Han pretty much tells us what he is saying.

When you just have three Wookies in a home together with no one telling us what is going on, it is just a bunch of nonsense that no one enjoys. Basically, it is terrible and annoying and we have to watch this kid try and navigate everything without any of us understanding him.

It wouldn’t be bad if Lumpy didn’t just squeal a bunch. His speaking pattern is something akin to a dying pig. It is not cute and we have to listen to only that for thirty minutes. Again, I express the hatred I have of this special. Especially since we have absolutely no clue what is going on. And then halfway through the whole thing, a guy comes in and just answers their questions but doesn’t translate anything to the audience.

It is like someone kind of knew what Star Wars was and that was it.
