USA Today has revealed that a brand new Star Wars Holiday Special is in the works, and it is slated to hit Disney+ on November 17, 2020. Best of all, it will be a LEGO animated project!

The special is 45-minutes in length, and is influenced by: “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” “Christmas Vacation” and old Burl Ives musical cheer. Apparently, even a few of the actual actors will return to reprise their roles, but which ones is unknown at this point.

It will be set after the events of The Rise of Skywalker, and will feature most of that cast of character, as Rey and BB-8 will be the vessels for the time jumping story. It sounds like even though it will be set post-TROS, characters from all of the trilogies will be featured thanks to the time skipping mechanic.

At the heart of the story though will be Rey and Luke Skywalker’s bond, but not old angry Luke, rather she’ll be teaming up with Rebellion Luke, which may give some super fans the pairing of these two they always wanted, as their relationship in this show is being teased as something unique.

I’m all for LEGO Star Wars projects, so sign me up. These are always cheeky and fun to experience, with plenty of humor, as well as franchise self deprecation. Head on down below to read a brief synopsis.

About The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special

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.
