Summer is here, and the trailer for LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation is about to heat things up! The all-new animated special will premiere August 5, 2022, exclusively on Disney+.
The special comes from Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group and is 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.

Looking for a much-needed break from stormtroopers and TIE fighters, Finn arranges a surprise vacation for his friends Rey, Poe, Rose, Chewie, BB-8, R2-D2, and C-3PO, aboard the ultra-luxurious Galactic Starcruiser, the Halcyon. But Finn’s plan to have one last hurrah together quickly goes awry when he’s separated from the group.
