Three huge Star Wars actors are returning to the galaxy and will be on the small screen this holiday season. Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), and Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico) have all signed on to voice LEGO versions of their iconic characters in The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special.
According to StarWars.com, the special picks up after Episode 9, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Rey continues her Jedi training and comes upon something inside a Jedi Temple that hurdles her through time.

In an Entertainment Weekly article, Tran says her character will have a “particularly significant role.” She says Rose will take charge and save the day in “many ways.” The new special marks the return of the Star Wars Holiday Special brand, as this comes after the infamous 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special that aired only once.
Alongside Williams, Daniels, and Tran, fan favorites from Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be going LEGO as well, including Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker), James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi), and Dee Bradley Baker (Clone Troopers).
You can start streaming The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special on November 17. For now, you can watch several Star Wars LEGO Shorts on Disney+.
