Disney+ Unwraps LEGO STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL Trailer and Poster

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special
First look at the latest addition to the LEGO Star Wars franchise.

In 1978, the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special was aired on TV. Such was the negative reaction at the time that George Lucas promptly sought to ensure it would never air again, but in the internet age a new generation of Star Wars fans embraced its ironic charms through bootlegs.

Now LEGO and Lucasfilm are similarly leaning into its notoriety with LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, an animated Disney+ special that takes place in the aftermath of The Rise of Skywalker while riffing on the original 1978 misfire.

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special brings back franchise stars Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), as well as Star Wars: The Clone Wars vets Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker), Tom Kane (Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn), James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) and Dee Bradley Baker (clone troopers).

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special premieres on Disney+ November 17th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Directly following the events of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” Rey leaves her friends to prepare for Life Day as she sets off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan and other iconic heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films. But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?
