Summer just got hotter with the arrival of a new clip and poster for LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation, the all new animated special premiering August 5, 2022 exclusively on Disney+. The clip debuted at LEGO’s San Diego Comic-Con panel alongside a new poster and highlights the latest installment in the popular cross-saga storytelling series which is set shortly after the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
The all new animated feature from Lucasfilm and the LEGO group features the vocal talents 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.
Looking for a much-needed break from stormtroopers and TIE fighters, Finn arranges a surprise vacation for his friends Rey, Poe, Rose, Chewie, BB-8, R2-D2, and C-3PO, aboard the ultra-luxurious Galactic Starcruiser, the Halcyon. But Finn’s plan to have one last hurrah together quickly goes awry when he’s separated from the group. While searching for his friends, he encounters three Force ghosts: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Leia Organa, who each share their own unexpected stories of vacations gone wrong, helping him to understand that holidays are about more than just having fun.
LEGO® Star Wars Summer Vacation is written by David Shayne and directed by Ken Cunningham and produced in collaboration with Atomic Cartoons. James Waugh, Josh Rimes, Jacqui Lopez, Jill Wilfert, Jason Cosler, Keith Malone, and Jennifer Twiner Mccarron serve as executive producers.
