For fans of LEGO Star Wars, Disney+ is offering a first look at its upcoming “LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation” special coming later this summer.
The all-new animated special from Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group is the newest entry in the popular signature branded cross-saga storytelling series.
Here’s everything we know about the show, including a trailer to watch.
“LEGO® Star Wars Summer Vacation,” is set shortly after the events of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”
Looking for a much-needed break, Finn arranges a surprise vacation for his friends Rey, Poe, Rose, Chewie, BB-8, R2-D2, and C-3PO, aboard the ultra-luxurious Galactic Starcruiser, the Halcyon.
But Finn’s plan to have one last hurrah together quickly goes awry when he’s separated from the group.
While searching for his friends, he encounters three Force ghosts: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Leia Organa.
Each one shares their own unexpected stories of vacations gone wrong, helping him to understand that holidays are about more than just having fun.
Best vacation ever, right?
Of course if the Rebellion can go on vacation, the remnants of the Empire can too, and we also see Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine having some quality beach time.
