Writer/director/actor Jon Favreau is no stranger to holiday classics - he directed Christmas favorite Elf. But now he wants to put a new spin on a very different holiday movie - 1978's notorious Star Wars Holiday Special.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight's Ash Crossan, Favreau (who is showrunner of the Disney+ Star Wars show The Mandalorian) says he wants to create a new Star Wars Holiday Special for Disney+.

"Someday, maybe on Disney+, we'll do a Holiday Special too," Favreau said. "Wouldn't that be wonderful?"

Here's the video:

But don't go opening gifts before they're delivered, as Favreau hasn't even taken the idea to Disney and Lucasfilm yet. 

"I gotta pitch that to them. We'll see," he concludes.
