The vitriol that at first met the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special has since transformed into a sort of deranged gratefulness for exactly how fucking weird it was—Jefferson Starship, Bea Arthur, and Harvey Korman meeting up for Wookie Christmas? For hell’s sake, we’ll take that over the bland and illogical Rise Of The Skywalker.
Consider us excited, at that point, for the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special, a continuation of Rise Of The Skywalker wherein the Star Wars family prepares for Wookie Christmas (sorry, Life Day) as Rey and BB-8 are shot through existence to encounter a portion of the franchise’s most iconic moments firsthand. “But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?” asks a synopsis. One can only dream.”
As you’ll find in the trailer, the special’s time-hopping premise implies you’ll see everybody from Yoda, Darth Vader, and Emperor Palpatine to Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Qui-Gon Jinn in Lego structure, maybe the best, everything being equal.
The special is additionally extending itself past the center establishment, with the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda seeming to dissolve a couple of hearts.
Kelly Marie Tran, Billy Dee Williams and Anthony Daniels will repeat their roles as Rose Tico, Lando Calrissian and C-3PO, respectively, while Clone Wars voice entertainers like Matt Lanter, Tom Kane, James Arnold Taylor, and Dee Bradley Baker balance the cast.
