LEGO STAR WARS SUMMER VACATION has many comedic moments and thrilling action. The humor involves amusing references to all nine STAR WARS films. However, the 45-minute special has a strong pagan and occult worldview. For example, the main plot is about getting advice from three ghosts. The ghosts use the Pantheistic Force to appear to Finn. This negative content is mitigated by strong morally uplifting values, such as Finn finding purpose and hope. Media-savvy families, however, may want to stay away from this STAR WARS SUMMER HOLIDAY.

LEGO STAR WARS SUMMER VACATION is a sci-fi animated short on Disney+ where the victors who conquered the First Order in the RISE OF SKYWALKER movie take a vacation hosted by Finn, but Finn becomes disgruntled when everyone separate. LEGO STAR WARS SUMMER VACATION is often fun and features positive lessons, such as finding purpose and hope, but the film has a strong pagan and occult worldview where Finn receives guidance from three “Force Ghosts”, Obi -Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Princess Leia.
The film opens with Finn, Rey, Poe, Chewbacca, Rose and the three robots, C3PO, R2-D2 and BB8, who board a transport ship to take a well-deserved vacation. Finn arranged the vacation so they could all spend time together before they went their separate ways. However, when Finn goes to check everyone in at the reception, he finds that everyone has disappeared and gone off to do their own thing.
A discouraged Finn sits in the bar to drown his sorrows, when the ghost of Obi-Wan Kenobi appears. Obi-Wan tells Finn a story about the time on Tattoine where he had to pose as a tourist at Jabba the Hutt’s annual birthday barbecue, to steal an important mineral that Jabba had taken from the rebels. Obi-Wan had to sing a song at the barbecue to distract everyone’s attention so that a rebellious woman he just met could take the mineral. Obi-Wan having fun making the diversion was fun, so his advice to Finn is to have fun “in the moment” because you never know how long the moment will last.
Finn is also visited by the ghost of Anakin Skywalker, who shares the story of trying to get the Emperor to take a vacation from his tyrannical duties when Anakin was Darth Vader. The Emperor eventually realizes that being Emperor is what he really loves to do and taking a vacation was the last thing he should be doing. So Anakin’s message to Finn is, “Do what you love,” because when you do what you love, every day is a vacation.
Finally, Finn is visited by the ghost of Princess Leia. She tells Finn about the time she, Han Solo, and their young son, Ben, took one last family trip to a resort town in Endor before taking Ben to train with Luke. However, when they arrive at Endor, the station is very run down. Eventually, Han and Leia resolve a dispute between the station’s human owner and the Ewoks. Also, Ben must learn to fly the Millennium Falcon out of a debris field when a teenager from Endor forces his way into the cockpit and begins piloting the ship without permission. Leia tells Finn that no one is really gone as long as they are remembered.
LEGO STAR WARS SUMMER VACATION has many comedic moments and thrilling action. Part of the humor involves amusing references to all nine STAR WARS movies. For example, lines and scenes from all three trilogies are reused in fun ways, such as Anakin visiting Finn on a beach and telling him that sand is everywhere.
However, the 45-minute special has a strong pagan occult worldview. For example, the main plot involves Finn getting advice from three ghosts. The ghosts use the Pantheistic Force to appear to Finn and give him advice. Fortunately, however, this negative worldview is mitigated by strong morally uplifting values, such as Finn finding his identity, purpose, and hope. Finn also learns to do what you love, to save what you love, to let go and say goodbye, and to enjoy the moment. Finn also realizes that, while you share memories with friends and family, they never really left after you said goodbye. Media-savvy families, however, may want to stay away from this STAR WARS SUMMER HOLIDAY because of their occultism.
