Ewoks & Elves : A Star Wars Christmas
In a way the original Star Wars Holiday Special is a lot like a snuff film. Not many have actually seen it, but everyone has heard rumors of its existence.

Since then it’s mostly lived on in bootleg form, mainly due to George Lucas’s utter hatred of the project. However it was recently resurrected on YouTube if you’d like to subject yourself to the torture.

At some houses, instead of decorating with elves and reindeer, they hang up ewoks and tauntauns.
