I've been excited about this episode since it was announced last year. It was clear that this special was put together with lots of love to the Star Wars franchise. There was lots of references to things big time Star Wars fans would appreciate as well as a few Star Wars in pop culture nods, including what seemed to be a tip of the hat to Kevin Smith's Clerks film. The music, a staple of the show, was fun, I especially enjoyed the Tatooine anthem in the beginning.
The series, unlike other specials didn't recast SW with P&F characters, but instead told the story of an adventure that happened parallel to "A New Hope". The Special included all the new hope characters, as well as a nods to things and places that happened in the other movies, both original and new trilogy.
I'm sure Disney will show this special again and again, on both Disney and Disney XD. if you're a fan of Star Wars or P&F you should definitely check it this specialout, you will really enjoy it. Oh, and if you're one of "those" Star Wars fans, take heed to the friendly tip given during the episodes scroll; "...none of this is canon, so just relax".
