They may be from the Dark Side, but even Darth Vader and the Emperor enjoy some fun in the sun!
This summer, watch your favorite Star Wars characters live it up in the form of LEGO minifigures in a new animated special from Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group. LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation is the latest special to join the cross-saga storytelling series that first began with LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special.
LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation is set shortly after the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and stars the voices of Weird Al Yankovic, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kelly Marie Tran, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, and returning cast members from previous LEGO Star Wars specials. Weird Al will also perform a new original song, called Scarif Beach Party.
In the special, Finn sets up a surprise vacation for his friends Rey, Poe, Rose, Chewie, BB-8, R2-D2, and C-3PO aboard the luxurious Galactic Starcruiser, the Halcyon, to take a break from stormtroopers and TIE fighters. However, Finn gets separated from the group and encounters three Force ghosts: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Leia Organa, who each share their own stories of vacations gone awry.
LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation will begin streaming exclusively on Disney+ on Aug. 5. Watch the trailer below to see Dark Vader setting up a game of lightsaber limbo on the beach, Obi-Wan chilling out in a Hawaiian shirt, Jabba the Hutt singing karaoke, and more!
