Given all that Rey, Finn, Rose and Poe have been through in the story Continuation of the trilogy, I would say they were overdue for a break. Luckily, the quartet gets a chance to sit back and relax Lego Star Wars summer vacationthe latest Lego special coming to Disney+, which will come with a brand new one “Odder” Al Yankovic Song titled “Scarif Beach Party”. I mean, knowing that, do you even need to watch the first trailer of the special?

Well, you might want to, since the song is awesome even in the extremely shortened version played in the trailer:

LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation | Official Trailer | Disney+

The official synopsis: “In search of 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 star cruiser, the Halcyon. But Finn’s plan to have one last hooray together quickly goes awry when he gets separated from the group. While searching for his friends, he encounters three force spirits: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Leia Organa, each with their own unexpected stories about vacations gone wrong, helping him to understand that vacations are about more than just that Fun. ”

That’s right, because a holiday is also about relaxing. But it sounds like the special is trying to say something along the lines of “holidays are about hanging out with your friends,” which I’d put firmly under the “having fun” category. To put it bluntly, this trailer doesn’t bother me nearly as much as last year’s Lego Star Wars Halloween Special, save for the Emperor’s hilariously over-the-top excitement at the possibility of becoming “Ruler of the Beach.” But it could be 30 minutes of hiss as long as I get a new “Weird” Al Yankovic to hear war of stars song sometime during.

By the way, Yankovic’s character is named Vic Vankoh, which is a nice touch war of stars name, but significantly worse than Yan Kovic, in my humble opinion. From course You travel on the halcyon. God forbid Disney miss a chance to lure children to ask her parents to pay $6000 to LARP at Galaxy’s Edge Park.
