Beaches and LEGO bricks — what could be better for a summertime adventure? LEGO Star WarsSommer Vacation It is now Disney+Finn, his friends and a brand new story about them who go on an extravagant trip. Halcyon starcruiser for a long-overdue break. Finn, who is now separated from the rest of the party, meets three Force ghosts: Anakin Skywalker, Obi Wan Kenobi, and Obi Wan Kenobi. Their stories of summer teach Finn a valuable lesson, and the yarns contain enough Easter eggs for an entire spacecruiser. StarWars.com was thus searched LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation — and even consulted with Lucasfilm’s Leland Chee, one of the creatives behind the original special, as well as writer/executive producer David Shayne — to uncover as many in-jokes, story connections, and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it references as possible. These 20 are the best.
1. The Finn-tastic Disney+ introduction.
It’s easy to do that “skip intro” button, partner! You’ll miss Finn in LEGO Star Wars The form effectively ends the normal intro, which is played before everything. Star Wars Disney+ programming
2. These ugly sweaters are back.
Consider this one a sneak peek: Artoo and Threepio’s wintery attire will match their minifigure appearance in this year’s LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar.
3. Many gonk waiters are available.
As a gag, gonk droids carry food and beverages. Of course, as gonk droids have no arms, they’re basically balancing trays atop their “heads.”It’s not an easy task!
Fun fact bonus: Ken Cunningham is a big fan of gonks which could explain the Easter egg.
4. One Yerdua Drop please
If you’d like to try Finn’s drink of choice, you’re in luck. It’s based on an actual beverage that you can order at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser The “Yerdua Poison-Spitter Drop.”
5. Meet the “galactic libations” droid.
A play on C-3PO’s “human-cyborg relations” programming, the galactic libations droid’s moniker takes the joke one step further: it’s name is BV-RJ, or “beverage.”
6. What’s in a name?
LEGO Star WarsThe Freemaker Adventures Lt. Valeria is a fictional character who teams up to Obi-Wan to tell a tale from Tatooine’s past. Her name will be well-known to her fans. But revealed here is her first name — Colvett — which comes from a mashup of voice actor Yvette Nicole Brown’s first and middle names.
7. For a Hutt, a dessert
Jabba’s birthday cake is decorated with the Hutt’s favorite treat: Klatooinian paddy frogs. Hey, it’s his party.
8. Some robots are programmed with music.
Keep your eyes peeled on the crowd in Jabba’s palace and you’ll spot a crowd-surfing protocol droid.
9. The design origins Gamorrean girl’s clothes.
“Gamorrean Girls” turns out to be a catchy summer tune, and the actual design of the Gamorrean girl at Jabba’s party comes from an authentic source: art by legendary Star Wars Ralph McQuarrie serves as the concept artist
Valeria wants Sy Snootles to be played as a bonus Easter egg “‘Gamorrean Girls’ in the key of D,” she’s being musically accurate — that’s the song’s actual key.
10. Boba has a theme and he’ll use it.
Hear the music cue as Boba comes in to Obi-Wan’s target, Colvett? That’s his new theme from the season finale of Boba Fett: The Book of Boba FettIt made its debut outside the series.
11. Force ghost vaycay.
Force ghost Obi wan, also known as Force ghost, switches his wardrobe unannounced and is seen in the same shirt, with a summer theme, from his story. Even if your name is immortalized, you should still dress properly.
12. What’s that symbol?
When R2-D2, C-3PO, and BB-8 emerge from the spa, they’re all sporting robes and towels with matching logos: the insignia of Chandrila Star Line, owners of the Halcyon starcruiser. You can also find this logo at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.
Bonus Easter egg
13. “Twin Suns,”Only sunscreen Sith Lords trust.
Accept no substitutions.
14. The sand is used to build Sith castles.
When Finn heads to the beach, he builds Darth Vader’s Mustafar castle. Most impressive, considering he didn’t even have a shovel.
15. “Weird Al”He makes his Star Wars debut!
His own background is the song-parody legend Star Wars, including 1980’s “Yoda” and 1999’s “The Saga Begins.” But as Vic Vankoh, he’s now officially part of the Star Wars galaxy — and his character’s name takes inspiration from “Yankovic.”
16. It’s not a polka party, but it’s close.
“Weird Al”Performs “Scarif Beach Party” LEGO Star WarsSommer VacationVic Vankoh uses his bandfill to hold his accordion in the same manner Yankovic did with his legendary accordion.
17. For Force ghosts, scuba gear is available
When Anakin shows up at the beach, he emerges from the water sporting scuba gear — a nod to the regulator used to create Darth Vader’s breathing sound effect in Star Wars: A New Hope. (As to why a Force ghost needs scuba gear, we don’t care. We love it.
18. Tropical porgs!
These colorful birds point to the possibility that different kinds of porgs — first seen on Ahch-To island in Star Wars: The Last Jedi — exist across the galaxy. Might there even be Mustafar Porgs Hoth porgs? There are many things we don’t know.
19. ‘80s-inspired bully.
Ben Solo’A misadventure in its entirety has resulted in an ‘80s movie vibe to it, but the obnoxious, makes-your-fists-clench Rad is directly inspired by the love-to-hate ‘em bullies of fare like Pretty in Pink, Karate Kid, Back to the Future. Rad, just like the antagonists in those stories, gets his comeuppance.
Bonus fun fact: Rad is voiced and acted by Paul F. Tompkins who has previously played roles in Star Wars animation. But Tompkins’First Star Wars This sketch was recorded live, and features an appearance. Star Wars ShowStarWars.com’s team produced the film. The film in which he played an hocking salesman “toy Yodas.”
20. Rose revisited.
Rose Tico was played by Kelly Marie Tran, her favorite character. Some of her dialogue even got rerecorded. Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It’s good to have her back.
