Is loosely inspired by the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special.

For many, the words “Star Wars” and “holiday special” conjure up some rather unpleasant memories – one’s that most fans of the mega franchise have tried to long forget. Well, there’s a new Star Wars holiday special in town, but luckily, the only thing this one is full of, is enjoyable riffs of nostalgia. In other words – it’s Wookiee-sized fun for the whole family! Now, if you’re familiar with the “Lego animated” brand of humour, then you’ll know exactly what you’re in for. Just don’t expect it to be as hyper vibrant and frenetic as those other Lego movie offerings (sadly, this one misses the comedic mark on more than a few occasions). What it does do, however, is serve up plenty of gleeful mashups of your favourite Star Wars moments. There’s also adequate amounts of insider jokes and movie call-backs to keep the most “hardcore” of fanatics happy. But hey, even if you’re not a longstanding fan of this intergalactic series, you’ll still be hard-pressed to hide your smile here. So put on an ugly “Life Day” sweater, let out your best Wookiee call and enjoy. Hhhummghhra nwurrr rowrigghh!
