I wonder if the Holiday Special was the reason he became so protective of Star Wars. Seeing as it was done soon after A New Hope, but some time before The Empire Strikes Back, there wasn't a lot of Star wars to be protective about at that time. Just a thought.I've often wondered what frame of mind Lucas was in when he signed off on The Holiday Special? Given how protective he was of Star Wars, I'm surprised at how legendary bad it is supposed to be. Shame we can't get a 4k restoration of it.
