Learn the true meaning of Life Day with a festive celebration of the entire Skaywalker Saga in the charming lego style debuting November 17.
 

 
'It’s the most wonderful time of the year on Kashyyyk, and LEGO Star Wars fans are invited to journey back to Chewbacca’s homeworld for a Wookiee-sized celebration of the galaxy’s most cheerful and magical holiday — Life Day!

This November, The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, — which premieres on Life Day, November 17, 2020 on Disney+, — will reunite Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose and all your favorite droids, from R2-D2 to BB-8, for a joyous feast on Life Day, the holiday first introduced in 1978’s Star Wars Holiday Special. The new LEGO special is the first to debut on the streaming platform and will continue the rich longtime collaboration between Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group — playful adventures told in an endearingly irreverent way.

Set after the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Rey leaves her friends to prepare for Life Day as she embarks on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi temple, Rey finds herself 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 Kenobi 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? You’ll have to watch to find out!

And starting next month, you can get a closer look at some of the holiday-themed characters from the special when the 2020 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar releases on September 1. This year, the advent calendar was designed in concert with the development and production of the show. DK will also release the LEGO Star Wars Holiday sticker book, which lets brick fans stick instead of click.

The 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 producers.’
 

 
Hopefully they’ll put on the actual 1978 Holiday Special too on the same night… I know, it is too much to ask 😃

A Lego Holiday Special? Could be fun…

That’s pretty wonderful. Also, please note the upper-half of Maul charging into battle.

I totally read this as “the holiday special will air on Disney +” and did a huge double take.

I imagine a few people will mate 😃 and will also be calling for Disney+ to show the real thing too…

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Getting ready with my own version of the Simpsons Jingle Bells parody:

Jingle bells, mudhorn smells,
Mando got an egg
Razor Crest in distress
And this is the way

Bart Simpson version:

Jingle bells, Batman smells,
Robin laid an egg
Batmobile lost its wheel
And Joker got away

That parody was around long before the Simpsons.

I did not know that.

Just read an article that says it goes back to the 1960’s and other similar Jingle Bells parodies even before then.

Oof. On the one hand this seems fun, but on the other it’s a way of burying the original in the information age. Put it on Disney+ cowards.

I don’t think this is intended to be a way of “burying the original,” given that info about the original is still easy to find online. Not everything Disney does has a nefarious motive.

And also, the original Holiday Special is an absolute trash fire, and it doesn’t deserve to be on Disney+ or anywhere else really.

The original is godawful and this is a legitimate way of reducing it’s visibility in the current world of search engines. It’s not really negative, it’s just a thing that will happen. Just think of when you look up a movie and some remake version now appears on screen. If George hated it so much he could have had done this himself.

Yet we’ve had preservation projects for it about as long as this site has been around. If anything, this will create more curiousity about the original. Disney would be wise to cash in by releasing it with a tounge in cheek commentary from the surviving cast or a spurious documentary. License the Rifftrax audio while they’re at it.

Every generation has a legend…

Every journey has a misstep…

Every Saga has a skeleton in the closet. 😛

Man, I really need to stay off Instagram comments sections… Even in her Lego form, I’m convinced there’s a faction of extreme sequel-haters who get heart palpitations every time they see Rey. Can’t let negativity drag down this obviously light-hearted and wonderful project.

Some moments in the trailer I cringed at, other jokes were absolute gold. Looking forward to watching this soon.

I’m starting to wonder if they’ll be changing Life Day’s canon origins to not specifically come from Wookiees. Because if it were, then giving The Emperor a gift for Life Day would be like giving Hitler a gift for Hanukkah.

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?

I’m pretty sure Life Day is meant for all life and not just wookiees. In the original special, Kashyyyk was just the planet hosting the event that year or something like that. What I’m more curious in is if they’re fixing to say ROTJ takes place during or around Life Day.

Life Day was a Wookiee holiday in the original, but I’m sure anyone could propably join them.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

I loved it. Loved how (in its comic Lego way) it is set after TROS and yet brought back 3 characters 42 years later. I was sad only 3 original voices participated, but I think several Clone Wars voices were back.
