Toons & Tunes: Christmas Tauntauns
Yes, this is yet another Christmas themed video. I can hear your collective groans, but ’tis the season, so deal with it.
This little ditty manages to be fun, sweet and quirky without getting overly sappy or sentimental like many holiday songs tend to do. The CGI is a tad primitive and the singing is a smidge flat, but to be fair this was the early 2000’s and the singer, Kirsty Dawson, was only 16 at the time and this was her first time performing in a recording studio. Anyways, George Lucas himself apparently liked the short, since he hand picked it as the winner of a Star Wars fan film contest. Enjoy Christmas Tauntauns.
