Jon Favreau Wants To Do A Star Wars Holiday Special On Disney+
Disney+ is set to launch on November 12th and will include a wide selection of content including the Star Wars movies. But there are many doubts about the addition of the “infamous” Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978, which actually introduced the character Boba Fett. Since Lucasfilm hasn’t re-released it since it originally aired.
During a recent interview with E, Jon Favreau revealed that he would love to do a Star Wars Holiday Special on Disney+.
“I was the one bringing The Holiday Special to the table, that’s my generation. I love The Holiday Special — certain sequences more than others — but I love the introduction of Boba Fett and that rifle that he had. That animated piece still holds up. It’s pretty cool. I draw inspiration from that. I would love to… someday maybe someday on Disney+ we’ll do a Holiday Special, too. I gotta pitch that to them.”
