June 22nd, 2022 by Marc Comments

Man, I recall when LEGO Star Wars gave us The Freemaker Adventures and it was full of characters we could relate to and told a story that could actually take place in the main Star Wars universe.

Now, however, it’s Darth Vader on a summer holiday, the third LEGO Star Wars holiday-themed special. I mean… what? Ok, I’m being grumpy here, I know I am. This is for kids and I’m sure they’ll enjoy it… I just remember when things like this could appeal to audiences young and old.

Still, we get a new ‘Weird Al’ Star Wars song, so there’s that, amiright?

CELEBRATION 2022: Star Wars characters set for Summer Vacation!

Best vacation ever! Lego Star Wars Summer Vacation, an Original special, streams August 5, only on Disney+.

The all-new animated special from Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group and the newest entry in the popular signature branded cross-saga storytelling series that began with “LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special” and continued with “LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales,” will premiere August 5th, 2022, exclusively on Disney+.

LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation, which is set shortly after the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, features the voices of “Weird Al” Yankovic, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kelly Marie Tran, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, and returning cast members from previous “LEGO Star Wars” specials, and includes “Weird Al’s” new original song, Scarif Beach Party.

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….
