Get ready for the new daily show

STAR WARS CELEBRATION: Get ready for summer with new Star Wars Lego movie and check a fun new short

May 28th, 2022 by Marc Comments

During the Lego Star Wars panel at Celebration last night it was revealed that this summer we’re getting a new Star Wars Special called Summer Vacation.

We didn’t learn much about except that yes it will feature all your favourite characters and given the little Darth Vader minifig we saw at the event with his little summer shirt, it’s fair to assume that this Christmas the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar will tie into this movie.

The new movie will hit Disney+ on August 5th, just as summer ends.

Honestly, I have no real time for the Lego Star Wars shows – except the Freemakers, which was great and needs to be updated and brought into the main Star Wars story as it had some amazingly clever stuff going on as well as fun characters and a great story – but I appreciate many do, so fill your boots on this one, guys.

Also at the panel, we got a fun Lego short celebrating the 45th anniversary of, as it was called then, Star Wars [A New Hope].

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
