For the first time since 2014, we haven’t had a new Star Wars movie this year, but fans are currently being well fed thanks to Disney Plus. The Mandalorian is releasing new episodes weekly and this Tuesday saw the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special arrive on the streamer. The 45-minute festive-themed special is both a follow-up to the Sequel Trilogy, taking place after The Rise of Skywalker, and an homage to 1978’s infamous Star Wars Holiday Special. But, you know, everyone’s LEGO. And it somehow totally works.
Star Wars fans are loving it so far and social media is full of all kinds of reactions from those who are blown away by the hilarious yet surprisingly emotional time-hopping storyline. See below for just a sample of what folks are saying right now on Twitter…
Says it all, really.
Just watched the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special. Loved it.

Though the likes of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Mark Hamill are not involved in it, the special is given some extra legitimacy thanks to three stars from the movies reprising their roles. Namely, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico and Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian.
If you haven’t caught it yet, go watch the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special on Disney Plus now. Trust us when we say that you won’t regret checking it out.
