“We started realizing that the way they play with them isn’t with canonical separation, it’s not, ‘Let’s put all the classic trilogy sets here, the prequel sets here, new sequel sets here,'” Executive Producer James Waugh told Entertainment Weekly. “My son literally just dumps his bucket out. We realised that was a play pattern that could actually inform the fun of this show.”

The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special will arrive on Disney+ on November 17.
