Lucasfilm has released the first LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special trailer, offering a first look at footage from the upcoming Christmas special airing exclusively on Disney+. Yes indeed, they made a new Star Wars Holiday Special following the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special that aired on TV in 1978 and featured the main cast from Star Wars in an embarrassing new storyline.
The animated LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special similarly takes place on Life Day, but it features far more in-jokes and far fewer original cast members. We do know that Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), and Anthony Danies (C-3PO) all contribute to the voice cast, but thus far unconfirmed are Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, or Oscar Isaac. The only one I could maybe hear in this trailer is Ridley, but even then it could just be a solid soundalike. I’m not super convinced Driver would be eager to come back for a LEGO Star Wars movie to poke fun at his shirtless scene in The Last Jedi.
That’s how this trailer is able to include two Han Solos – one young, one old – Darth Vader, Palpatine, and Kylo Ren all in the same movie.
Check out the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special trailer below. It premieres exclusively on Disney+ on November 17th.
