Proof You’re Never Too Old For Lego’s

Smart

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!


And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!


Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!


And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

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.
