Well, well well. Disney’s latest Star Wars installment has been a 45 minute long special and it’s all about going on vacation. Yep, that’s it.
The film ( if you can even legally call it that ) centers around the crew of TROS pretty much immediatly after the film’s events, and for some reason they all decide to go on a vacation starship owned by Lando.
The film also features iconic SW characters reprising their former roles, from Billy Dee Williams, Matt Lanter, James Arnold Taylor ( playing Old Ben ), and Anthony Daniels. Also Weird Al does a voice ( we’ll get to that )
So let’s move into this cartoony version of a plot that probably took about 3-4 hours to write in total.
So everyone’s on vacation, Lando owns the joint, he shows up in a lego hologram and everyone wants to have some fun one last time together before they go their seperate ways. What I also notice is the film treats taking a vacation like it’s some insane once in a lifetime experience that big name people aren’t allowed to do. Like Finn later on meets Anakin’s ghost ( Matt Lanter ) and he’s like “Darth Vader, you took a vacation?” And he’s like “Yep.” Then he tells a story of how Vader and Palps went on vacation together in Scarif? I think. Anyway Weird Al is hosting a concert there and stuff happens.
Stuff happens. That pretty much desribes the movie. There’s really not much to say about it. It had a couple jokes that landed but the whole thing felt like a bizarre, cheap way to get lego star wars characters together and release them with a “letting go” message that probably changed nothing to 99.9999999999999995 of viewers. 4.8/10. And I really enjoyed the Empire Strikes Back lego movie for the record.
