Star Wars holiday variety show

Pictures with Darth Santa and his Mandalorian bounty hunter elves. Highlights from the legendary Star Wars Holiday Special. (Don’t tell George!) And a presentation by Nerdvana contributor and Star Wars fan supreme Dustin Diehl.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Dr. Diabolic, Nerd Nite Phoenix and Bookmans Entertainment Exchange are teaming up to present a First Friday all-ages holiday variety show 7 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Phoenix Art Museum’s Whiteman Hall. Museum admission is free, but tickets to the variety show cost $5 at the entrance and online. The free photo booth will open at 6 p.m. There will also be charity toy drive taking donations on-site for Aid to Adoption of Special Kids.

The Star Wars Holiday Special is the infamous 1978 TV movie set in the Star Wars galaxy. Chewbacca and Han Solo visit the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk to celebrate the Wookiee holiday Life Day with his family, which includes his wife Malla, his son Lumpy and his father Itchy. As Chewbacca and Han are known Rebel agents, they are pursued by the Galactic Empire, who in the process invade Chewbacca’s household.  The special is notorious for its negative reception and regret from Star Wars creator George Lucas.  It also officially introduces the bounty hunter Boba Fett.  Highlights from the special will be played in conjunction with a special presentation from local Star Wars aficionado and former Ignite Phoenix Presenter Dustin Diehl.
