’Twas the night before Life Day ...
The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special — a tribute to the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special — brings Rey, Finn, Poe, and the characters of the sequel trilogy together for a holiday celebration. But after finding some sort of Force magic crystal thing, Rey gets sent flying back to the original trilogy to meet young Luke, Yoda, and Darth Vader.
But when Palpatine gets whiff of this key to unlock space and time, he’s determined to use it to change the future. So it’s up to Rey and other heroes from the Skywalker Saga to race through iconic moments of Star Wars to get the key back — which means meeting characters they wouldn’t have otherwise, like a certain masked gunslinger and his child companion.
From the movies, Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) are all set to appear, with Star Wars: The Clone Wars voice actors Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker), Tom Kane (Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn), James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi), and Dee Bradley Baker (various clone troopers) filling in the legendary roles.
The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special lands on Disney Plus on Nov. 17.
