In an interview with USA today, executive producer Josh Rimes said the special is “a celebration of the saga. Many characters will interact with different characters and maybe even different versions of themselves at different ages. “That means we’re going to see things like Palpatine, Vader, and Kylo Ren hang out – did anyone say the Dream Galaxy Team of Antagonists?
The special will also feature Rey interacting with 1977-Luke in what will surely be a stark contrast to the Jedi Master she hooked up with in the movies. The special will also allow Rey to interact with Luke from 1977 instead of Jedi Master Luke, who she is connected with in the movies. This is sure to offer a fresh and fun take on their relationship as we will see their roles almost reversed.
Rimes says he hopes the special will shed some light on a year that has been difficult for almost everyone. And if there is anything that can make our 2020 a little better, it’s Star wars. His everlasting message of hope is exactly what we need. Additionally, we can see LEGO Poe Dameron in a Christmas sweater. Talk about an early holiday gift.
