Lego Star Wars are creating an homage to the infamous 1978 ‘Star Wars Holiday Special’ with the brand new. “The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special”. The special will bring beloved heroes like Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron back together to celebrate Life Day, the “Star Wars”-y holiday introduced in the original special way back in November 1978.The project features animated building-block versions of characters throughout “Star Wars” history and pays homage to the special’s disco-era predecessor, which has become a ‘so-bad-it’s-good’ cult favorite as fans have found it via video-sharing sites and bootleg videos.The Lego holiday special, which executive producer Josh Rimes teases will feature a few “Star Wars” movie actors reprising their roles, catches up with the cast after the events of last year’s saga-closing “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” Rey and droid pal BB-8 head off on a quest to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force, but their visit to a mysterious Jedi Temple sends them careening through time and space. Rey interacts with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and other characters in some of the franchise’s most beloved moments, as they try to return in time for a Life Day feast with her friends on Chewbacca’s Wookiee home world of Kashyyyk.
The special will premiere Nov. 17 2020 exclusively on Disney+ streaming service.
