Later this year, Lucasfilm is releasing a brand new LEGO Star Wars animated special on Disney+ called, the “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 the new original song Scarif Beach Party performed by “Weird Al” Yankovic.

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. While searching for his friends, he encounters three Force ghosts: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Leia Organa, who each share their own unexpected stories of vacations gone wrong, helping him to understand that holidays are about more than just having fun.

Disney has already announced that the series will premiere exclusively on Disney+ in many countries in the Northern Hemisphere on August 5th, 2022.


However, the animated special will be arriving a little later on Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand, where it will arrive a little later on Friday 23rd September 2022. This delay shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, as currently, it’s winter in the Southern Hemisphere, so releasing a summer special might not make too much sense in the region. This isn’t the first time Disney has made a release schedule change for seasonal specials, as “The Wonderful World Of Mickey Mouse” seasonal specials have been released at different times in the region.

Interestingly, Disney hasn’t adjusted the release date for other countries in the Southern Hemisphere, such as in South Africa or across Latin America, as the “LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation” special has been confirmed for an August 5th release in those regions.

“LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation” features the voices of: “Weird Al” Yankovic as Vic Vanko; Yvette Nicole Brown as Colvett Valeria; Thomas Lennon as Wick Cooper; Paul F. Tompkins as Rad; Dee Bradley Baker as Boba Fett; Ashly Burch as the Tour Droid; Kyliegh Curran as Sidero; Anthony Daniels as C-3PO; Trevor Devall as Emperor Palpatine; Allie Feder as Sy Snootles; Jake Green as Poe Dameron; Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker; Ross Marquand as Han Solo; Omar Miller as Finn; Kevin Michael Richardson as Jabba the Hutt; Matt Sloan as Darth Vader; James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan Kenobi; Kelly Marie Tran as Rose; Helen Sadler as Rey Skywalker; Billy Dee Williams as Lando (Holovid); Matthew Wood as Ben Solo; and Shelby Young as Leia Organa.

David Shayne is the writer and executive producer, and the director is Ken Cunningham. The executive producers are James Waugh, Josh Rimes, Jacqui Lopez, Jill Wilfert, Jason Cosler, Keith Malone, and Jennifer Twiner Mccarron. Produced in collaboration with Atomic Cartoons.
