Proof You’re Never Too Old For Lego’s

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

So it’s probably been a minute since you’ve thought about your Lego days. Disney, Star Wars, and Lego are joining forces to release a holiday special this November, and we can’t wait! Lego Star Wars Holiday Special, which will premiere on Disney+ in November, will directly follow the events of The Rise of Skywalker. We’ll get to see Lego versions of Finn, Chewie, and Rey in the Star Wars Holiday Special! According to a press release, the special “reunites Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose and the droids for a joyous feast on Life Day, a holiday first introduced in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special” and features Rey going on a new adventure with BB-8 to prepare for the holiday and gain a deeper understanding 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 and other iconic heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films,” the release reads. “But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?” We’re totally pumped for the special as we get closer to its Disney+ premiere on Nov. 17.
