Ewoks Caravan Of Courage.

JK Y'all.

I agree with everything said about ROTJ. But ESB is the better movie in the series because it is about character development and moral conflict and harsh reality, instead of dancing puppets.

Yeah, I did like the big puppets standing around on Vader's Star Destroyer. And the green puppet on the swamp. The puppets on Cloud City playing with 3PO's head. Oh, and the puppet on Hoth that attacked Luke!

You know, Star Wars would be a lot less cool without all those puppets (and people in alien suits).

fixed.

But for realzies. yeah dancing and otherwise puppets are vital to Star Wars, which is why I agree that ROTJ best sums up the saga. I just didn't have anything to add on top of that that wasn't already said by other members, so I said why I think ESB is the better movie, not necessarily the better representation of SW.

And dancing Greedo.

Plus, a singing Bea Arthur--ah, the mysteries of the darkside.

I have never seen the Holiday Special. Does Greedo really dance in it?

It's been ages since I've watched The Holiday Special (and I'm not gonna watch it again just to confirm this Razz ), but I'm pretty sure Greedo isn't in it.

Maybe just a random Rodian?

I do remember Luke fixing his X-Wing with R2D2, which means he is already a part of the Rebel Alliance, which means he has left Tatooine and if I know anything about SW, I know that poor Greedo was already fried by Han at that point Very Happy .

Looked like Greedo to me. Maybe they used the same costume?

They probably did use the same costume.

In universe explanation may be that Lumpy was not watching "live from Tatooine", but a pre recorded imperial video.
I can't remember if it was supposed to be live or not. If not, than maybe Greedo really is dancing in the Holiday Special.

Return of the Jedi. It defines pretty much what the Jedi are.
