Deck the halls with boughs of Star Wars goodness! Disney Plus dropped the official trailer for The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special in our collective lap on Thursday. With Life Day swiftly approaching and the current sociopolitical climate stretched taut, this trailer is a welcome respite from the world. 

Now, the LEGO film franchise is known for its levity and campiness. I’m elated to see that same levity injected into the veins of Star Wars. While our core characters (Rey, Finn, Poe, Luke, etc.) won’t be voiced by their respective actors, I’m certain that won’t detract from The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special itself. 

In the trailer, we learn that Life Day is in full swing and our heroes are in celebration mode. Rey finds a key to the Jedi past and takes a stroll down memory lane. She encounters prominent characters from Jedi history, including Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine. Gifts are exchanged. Festive music abounds. Quips are quipped. But, more importantly, the Force is with our crew every step of the way.

You can take a gander at the lively trailer below for yourselves. Admittedly, I’m more excited for The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special than I was before. It doesn’t appear to take itself too seriously, which is always a plus. No pretentiousness allowed here! In short: it looks like a good time. Couldn’t we all use a good time these days?
