LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is the second Star Wars Holiday Special after the ludicrously unhealthy unique that launched method again in 1978. The LEGO movie has Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose and their droid buddies celebrating Life Day (a vacation among the many Wookiees).

Rey is coaching Finn within the methods of the Force and the Jedi, however is unable to ignite that spark she sees in him. She hears Yoda’s voice and the legendary Jedi Master factors her in the direction of a mysterious Jedi temple. She travels via area and time, and encounters a mess of basic characters from the franchise, together with Palpatine, Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, younger Luke Skywalker, amongst others.

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is a reasonably good Star Wars movie in its personal proper. The story is sensible throughout the context regardless of all of the wild stuff that occurs and basic characters that pop in for some time. If this was a full-fledged live-action Star Wars movie, one may need questioned the behaviour of a few of the unhealthy guys, particularly Darth Vader’s tantrum.

But right here, it looks like nitpicking. The movie, in any case, is only a particular. The joke most of the time lands, and there may be Baby Yoda, too, if just for an all too temporary second.

There can also be a transparent course-correction right here. And not only for the unique particular. This movie feels extra full than Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which was the conclusion to the sequel trilogy and the nine-movie Skywalker Saga.

For one, it addresses Finn’s sensitivity with the pressure, which mainly kicks off the plot. We additionally get much more of Rose Tico, Kelly Marie Tran’s character within the sequel trilogy, who earned the ire of Star Wars fanatics.

Overall, LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is kind of fun and a nice distraction from every part happening on the planet, notably for followers of the franchise.
