As we get more and more Star Wars movies, it's easy to forget that the franchise's overall batting average is pretty low once you factor in the three made-for-TV Star Wars movies from the 70s and 80s. The Star Wars Holiday Special, Ewoks: Caravan of Courage (a.k.a. The Ewok Adventure), and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor are inarguably the three worst Star Wars films of them all, and Screen Junkies takes aim at them in their latest Honest Trailer.

The Ewok movies get off relatively easy, considering that they're both unwatchable piles of garbage—though I will give Wilford Brimley's character ten points for being an ornery cuss in the Star Wars universe. This Honest Trailer is out for blood from the Holiday Special, however.

If you've never seen the Star Wars Holiday Special, I'm going to do my best to make it sound as awful as it is, but I guarantee you'll still want to watch it anyway. It's a classic network Christmas special, set in the Star Wars universe, filmed between Star Wars & Empire and starring the entire film's cast along with tons of actors kids love like Bea Arthur, Art Carney, and Harvey Korman.

It's an absolute abomination, and everyone involved looks like they want to be anywhere else on earth, with the exception of the late, great Carrie Fisher, whose coke addiction at the time had already taken her off-planet. It sounds like fun, but it's interminable and unwatchable and the worst thing that Star Wars has ever or will ever produce, sequel trilogy haters be damned!
