Any major projects with Lego attached are bound to be an absolute heap of fun, as proven by releases in the last decade such as Chris Pratt’s The Lego Movie and Will Arnett’s The Lego Batman Movie. These movies simply take the theory of what would happen by throwing all different kinds of Lego toys together and exploring the potential combinations and putting it on the big screen; safe to say, they usually bring a few smiles and a ton of laughs along the way.
A new release from Entertainment Weekly has shed some more light on the upcoming Lego Star Wars Holiday Special set to premiere on Disney+ on November 17. Set to begin at the Life Day celebration on Kashyyyk and follow the events of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, multiple versions of Star Wars characters from different timelines will be mashing up with the new and current heroes, including possibly two Han Solos, three Obi-Wan Kenobis, a young Kylo Ren, and even Darth Vader himself.
Executive producer James Waugh gave this quote when discussing the potential of all these characters being thrown into one story:
The Holiday Special has something you will never see in Star Wars otherwise which is all the characters from across all timelines crashing together. Normally story groups are so concerned about maintaining this amazing galaxy so that it feels cohesive, it was liberating to do this in a way that’s charming and fun.
It appears that this new Lego special, which will come as a sort of animated sequel to the incredibly maligned 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, will follow that same route. There are no specifics yet on what combinations will be utilized in the movie, but the possibilities are endless. With 43 years of Star Wars projects to pick from, fans are already fantasizing about the chances of multiple versions of the same characters interacting with each other, and especially how they will work together with Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Lando Calrissian, Kylo Ren and more from the new trilogy
