So I heard about this on the radio this morning. I heard it's laughably horrible. I also heard that Lucas has tried to suppress it as best he can. I want to get my hands on a few DVD copies. Anyone know where to look?

For the record, I'm not sure these DVD copies will be, strictly speaking, "authorized."

I checked Ebay, and nothing. I'm not very well versed on how to pick up these sort of things, though.

It's so bad it melts any DVD it's been copied on. The original print is what was actually inside the AotC in the final scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Here is a link to a Cracked.com article about the special. It's safer and less likely to make you commit suicide.

Look for the Rifftrax version. You'll thank me.

Its the whole movie, but voiced over by the MST3k guys.

I do know where to find it, but it is in a place that cannot be named on these forums. In SO many words, you could find it if you HUNT the internet for the right .COM. I could try to subtly direct you, but I wouldn't want to overstep the boundries.

I actually am lucky enough (or unlucky enough, depending on your point of view) to have this monstrosity on VHS. Original commercials and everything. I decided to pop it in last Christmas to show it to my girlfriend since she'd never seen it. Bad idea. You'll laugh at how terrible it is at first, but by the end you'll be wishing you hadn't watched it.

I love Rifftrax and MST3K, so I should definitely check that out. I'm sure it's the only way I'd sit through the special again.

"Happy Spirit Day."

I think that's what they said anyway. I'm surprised it's not on Youtube anymore. Never mind, it's still there.
