As a panel explained, Summer Vacation takes place after Star Wars Episode 9, and sees Rose, Rey, Finn, Poe, and Chewbacca taking a vacation after defeating Emperor Palpatine. They’ll discover throughout the special that a number of other Star Wars characters in history have also tried to take vacations…which hasn’t always gone well for them. And of course there will be a couple of musical numbers.
A whole roster of Star Wars favorites will make appearances during the special, including C-3PO, Lando, Boba Fett, Rey, Poe, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Rose, Jabba the Hutt, Anakin Skywalker, Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, Finn, Han Solo, Leia, and Palpatine. We’ll also see LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures characters Wick Cooper and Valeria return. And there’ll be a celebrity cameo from Weird Al Yankovic, voicing a character named Vic Vankoh.
There’s plenty more news for upcoming shows coming out of Star Wars Celebration, including new info on Star Wars: Skeleton Crew next year and a new trailer for Andor, which is coming in August. We also have a list of every upcoming Star Wars movie and film if you’re still craving more.
