LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation

Lucasfilm released the full trailer for "LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation," the latest animated special from Lucasfilm and the LEGO Group in a series that began with 2020's "LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special" and continued with 2021's "LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales." Here's the synopsis:

"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.

"LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation" will premiere August 5, 2022, exclusively on Disney+.

Marvel's upcoming Star Wars comics

In "Star Wars: Doctor Aphra" #21, written by Alyssa Wong and illustrated by Minkyu Jung, with a cover by W. Scott Forbes, the rogue archaeologist awakens after touching the Spark Eternal to find that she's powerless in her own body. I guess that's what happens when you're killed, resurrected, and taken over by the entity within an ancient artifact!

Meanwhile, in "Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca" #3, written by Marc Guggenheim and illustrated by David Messina, with a cover by Phil Noto, Han Solo and Greedo's uneasy alliance continues. Both issues arrive on June 29 and are available for pre-order now on ComiXology. Check out for an exclusive preview of both issues.

On The Bombadcast, I geek out with Scotty and Gerry about the truly bombastic finale.

At Live Action Star Wars, Ralph and James discuss Part VI with special guests Jay Glatfelter & Matt Eickhoff.

Chase, aka That Gay Jedi, shares his emotional reaction to the finale.

And on The Resistance Broadcast, Lacey, James, and John go in-depth on the final episode.

And for something a little different, watch Steele Saunders of Steele Wars talk about what it was like to actually be on the set of "Obi-Wan Kenobi" as an extra!
