Oh I would definitely be interested in doing a holiday special. And I’m not going to say who I would be interested in. But one of the people is the member of the cast in an upcoming episode of the show. So we’ll leave it at that for now. I’ve been thinking about it. It’s ready, the ideas are ready. I think it could be really fun. Not as part of this, but there’s an excitement around it because it was so fun and weird, and off and not connected to what Star Wars was in the theater. The Mandalorian cartoon, the Boba Fett cartoon, from the holiday special was definitely a point of inspiration for what we did in the show.

I sort of think there is an alternative way to approach this. Create a story around a family going to the Galaxy's Edge park during the holidays. Think something like The Griswolds in a Star Wars park.

Ah, Lego. Brilliant! It's a nice way to remove yourself from the stupidity of things, and enjoy them for what they are without canon. Nice move, IMO!

OTOH, I take it that Lord and Miller are probably just thrilled! They should have asked them for assistance... (They made Lego movie, then unceremoniously fired from Solo during production)

Just seeing this now, but hilarious!

Not quite OG Vacation, but...
“We wanted to give a wink and a nod to the original,” executive producer Josh Rimes says, adding the new 45-minute holiday special was inspired by “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” “Christmas Vacation” and old Burl Ives musical cheer.
