As if the prospect of streaming every single Star Wars motion picture wasn’t already enough of a lure for fans of the sci-fi franchise to use Disney+, a new LEGO-themed holiday special will premiere on Nov. 17 — and it features a handful of fan favorites from over the years.

Kelly Marie Tran, who portrayed Rose Tico in the latest films in the series, returns in Lego format for the special, as do Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian).

Here’s additional information about the special, per the blog:

The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special picks up post-Episode IX and finds Rey continuing her Jedi training. She comes upon something mystical in a Jedi temple that sends her hurtling through time, meeting Star Wars legends and visiting places of the past — but still, she must get back home for Life Day. The cast features many returning fan favorites, including Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, as well as several Star Wars: The Clone Wars vets: Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker), Tom Kane (Yoda, along with Qui-Gon Jinn), James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi), and Dee Bradley Baker (clone troopers) are all back. “We’re particularly thrilled that these great actors from the Star Wars family chose to reprise their roles and came to play in this LEGO sandbox,” Josh Rimes, director of animation development at Lucasfilm, says.

The premiere of the special comes a few weeks after the launch of the second season of The Mandalorian, so this winter will be filled with options for fans of the sci-fi universe.
