But Finn’s plans for one last binge quickly go awry as he gets separated from everyone.

Lego Star Wars: Summer Vacation (2022) review

The star-studded voice cast showed fans a new side to the characters, and in Lego Star Wars: Summer Vacation, the group went on vacation together but soon found themselves separated. Everyone has something they want to do, and although Finn invited everyone to the tour, the friends couldn’t stand him forcing them to do what he wanted, so the friends avoided him.

Finn, in turn, ended up alone, and suffered for it. Fortunately, he has the help of some very special power ghosts who want to teach him some lessons. The point is to let Finn enjoy his vacation, even if it’s not what he expected.

Because of this, the 45-minute Lego Star Wars: Summer Vacation is made up of several different short stories involving fan-favorite characters, just like the special we’ve seen before. With hilarious jokes and stunning animations, fans can explore a side of these characters never before seen!

While it’s true that Lego Star Wars: Summer Vacation is aimed at a younger audience, it’s suitable for all audiences. A lot of that is down to the excellent script, and the palpable fun from the creators and cast.

Lego Star Wars: Summer Vacation may not feel new, but there are some important life lessons to be learned from it.

Rating: 3/5
