LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special: Connects to Batuu?
So, over on StarWars.com there are a lot of very, very talented people keeping us all informed and entertained.
One of those Force-sensitive folks is Kelly Knox, whose latest post had me running to the remote.
Knox wrote, “15 Easter Eggs to Find in the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special – Less talky-talky, more eggy-eggy.”

On December 18, the piece began:
The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, now on Disney+, is a delightful romp through some of the greatest moments from a galaxy far, far away. Rey visits Jedi Masters of eras gone by to learn an important lesson — and it wouldn’t be LEGO Star Wars without inside jokes and tongue-in-cheek references galore paired with the festive tale! Nods to the original and unforgettable Star Wars Holiday Special, winks to the Star Wars fandom and toy collectors, and so much more are all included in this special Life Day gift to fans of the Skywalker saga.
Now, Kelly posted 15 Easter eggs, but I’m only going to tease three (in the hopes you head over to StarWars.com for the rest) and they are related to “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.”
1. Roasted tip-yip can be found at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Of course Poe Dameron is excited to eat roasted tip-yip. It’s delicious! And, best of all, you can try it at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. And, closer to home, you can cook it yourself with the mouthwatering recipe in the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Cookbook.
2. Thruster roasting is a tried-and-true cooking method seen at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and in The Mandalorian.
Poe Dameron knows his way around a spaceship — and the grill. Using a podrace engine or a starship engine to quickly cook a tasty meal is a tasty trick known across the galaxy from Batuu to Tatooine.
6. Darth Vader does his holiday shopping on Batuu.
Even a Dark Lord of the Sith knows where to find some of the galaxy’s best gifts. You can also browse the unique wares from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge online thanks to the Star Wars Trading Post, or at Star Wars Trading Post at both Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort and Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort.
