The film serves as a successor to the original 1978 made-for-TV Star Wars Holiday Special, which was infamously hated by Star Wars creator George Lucas who tried to redact and cover-up its existence, and includes content from the latest Star Wars sequel trilogy. It also takes place immediately after the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Following the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Rey sets off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and other iconic heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films. But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?
