LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation is available to watch now on Disney+ and producer Josh Rimes and writer David Shayne have been interviewed by the Star Wars website team, revealing insight into the production of the special and how the voice talent performed.
“We challenged Omar Miller to deliver heart and emotion, and he totally got there,” says Shayne. “I mean, to get LEGO pieces genuinely choking you up is a kudos to the performances.
Omar Miller is the voice actor for Finn in the special, who embarks on a journey to realise the message behind the film – the importance of memories. That same message is something that the creative team managed to realte to.
“You’ve created all these incredible memories that you will share for the rest of your life,” commented Shayne. “From a personal aspect, honestly, that’s how I felt getting to work with this gang. For this whole crew, it’s a very intimate, incredibly special, really fun team. We’ve been doing this for several years, so Finn, in some ways, was speaking for us.”
