Podcast Stardust #186: LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special

by Podcast Stardust

Happy Belated Life Day! On this episode we discuss Rey’s trip through time as she and her friends prepare to celebrate the Star Wars winter holiday.

The Star Wars Holiday Special that debuted 42 years ago. Although it has its own fans, it is not the most well regarded pieced of Star Wars content given its reliance on Wookiee grunts, strange virtual reality sequences, music choices, and more. Now, Star Wars fans have a new holiday special to enjoy for Life Day. This time, the holiday special was created for the Star Wars LEGO universe and follows Rey as she has her own Christmas Carol-like journey through time as she hopes to become a better Jedi Master for Finn.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • The voice cast of the Holiday Special,
  • Rey training Finn as a Jedi,
  • Some of our favorite jokes from the special,
  • The level of the humor and pace of the special,
  • Yoda’s lessons to Rey about failure, and
  • How the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special compares to the original Star Wars Holiday Special.
