The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is expected to be set after
the events of last year's The Rise of Skywalker with Rey,
Finn, Poe Dameron, Rose Tico and Chewbacca gathering to
celebrate Life Day, which is a Star Wars holiday that was
first introduced in the 1978 TV special.

Rey sets off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper
knowledge of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is
hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments
in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke
Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan, and other iconic heroes
and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films. But will she
make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true
meaning of holiday spirit?

Franchise stars reprising their roles in the LEGO Star Wars
Holiday Special include Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Billy
Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), as
well as Star Wars: The Clone Wars vets Matt Lanter (Anakin
Skywalker), Tom Kane (Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn), James Arnold Taylor
(Obi-Wan Kenobi), and Dee Bradley Baker (clone troopers).

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is a production of Atomic
Cartoons, the LEGO Group, and Lucasfilm. It is directed by Ken
Cunningham and written by David Shayne, who is also
co-executive producer. James Waugh, Josh Rimes, Jason Cosler,
Jacqui Lopez, Jill Wilfert, and Keith Malone are executive

Executive producer Josh Rimes previously revealed that the
new 45-minute holiday special is inspired by It's a Wonderful
Life, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Christmas Vacation and
old Burl Ives musical cheer. He also excitedly teased that
LEGO versions of the franchise's villains including Emperor
Palpatine, Darth Vader, and Kylo Ren will have a chance to
interact with one another.
