Starting at the beginning of December, Germany’s Sky Hits digital channel — I guess that’s like STARZ over there or something — will air all six Star Wars films in order plus as much supplemental material as German and Austrian fans can handle for two straight weeks. Okay, so it’s only temporary. But that’s two whole weeks during which, at any time of the day, no matter how down they’re feeling about the euro or whatever, certain lucky Europeans can expect to switch on their sets and be emboldened by the adventures of a ragtag group of rebels armed with laser blasters struggling to break the shackles of galactic tyranny.
What do we get over here? An all Beyoncé radio station. Danke schoen, indeed!
In between the films, the channel will air a total of 20 behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of all six movies as well as two Star Wars documentaries from Emmy-winner Kevin Burns:* Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy* (2004), and 2007’s Star Wars: The Legacy Revealed. - The Hollywood Reporter
That’s all well and good, but the important question is: So close to the yuletide, will the temporarily-branded Sky Star Wars HD broadcast this landmark Star Wars-themed special?
