LEGO Star Wars // JUNE 21, 2022
That is the place the enjoyable begins for the upcoming Disney+ particular.
Our favourite galactic heroes are occurring trip. In spite of everything, saving the galaxy from a cloned Emperor Palpatine in all probability warrants not less than a few days off.
Following a teaser at LEGO CON 2022, Lucasfilm launched in the present day the complete trailer for LEGO Star Wars Summer season Trip, the most recent animated particular constructed — that’s a LEGO pun — for Disney+. Because the title implies, the story finds Finn arranging a shock journey for his buddies aboard the luxurious Halcyon starcruiser for some much-needed R&R. Listed below are 5 issues we beloved from the trailer, and we will’t look forward to extra when LEGO Star Wars Summer season Trip arrives on August 5.
1. The Easter eggs.
It wouldn’t be LEGO Star Wars with out some blink-and-you’ll-miss-it nods to followers. We spy Artoo and Threepio sporting robes with the Chandrila Star Line brand, a ronto wrap (out there at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge), and a few Aurebesh writing. We now have a sense there’s much more to seek out.
2. The saga-spanning tales.
The LEGO Star Wars specials on Disney+ have executed an amazing job at incorporating all eras of the saga. It’s a option to supply one thing for everybody, but in addition to inform tales that simply aren’t actually doable in any other case. And the creators at Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group have executed it once more right here. In LEGO Star Wars Summer season Trip, Finn turns into separated from his buddies on the Halcyon starcruiser and encounters the Pressure ghosts of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Leia Organa, and Anakin Skywalker, who all inform tales of summer season enjoyable gone mistaken. Finn will study what holidays can actually imply, and it’ll be via the lens of characters starting from Ben Solo to Darth Vader.
3. Two phrases: “Bizarre Al.”
Thank the Pressure, “Bizarre Al” Yankovic is again within the galaxy far, distant. The long-lasting singer/comic performs a brand new tune, “Scarif Seashore Celebration,” and additionally voices Vic Vankoh in LEGO Star Wars Summer season Trip; we don’t know a lot about Vic but, however he might be seen within the trailer hyping a contest to rule the seaside. “Bizarre Al” and Star Wars simply appear to go collectively, and it’s been too lengthy.
4. The tropical-looking porgs.
A few colourful birds sit perched atop Darth Vader’s hat, tremendously resembling Ahch-To’s well-known critters. Does this imply there are completely different sorts of porgs all through the galaxy? We now have a lot of questions…
5. The jokes made for followers.
Even on this brief trailer, the intelligent LEGO Star Wars humorousness shines via. BB-8, seemingly recent out of the spa, wears a cucumber slice over his singular lens; Darth Vader, sporting a summer-themed tank high, shudders on the considered making use of sunblock to Palpy (who wouldn’t?); and Jabba lets unfastened at a dance get together. A few of it’s apparent, a few of it’s delicate. However it’s all enjoyable and executed with a transparent love of the saga. That’s LEGO Star Wars.
