We knew “Weird Al” Yankovic would not only appear in a Lego Star Wars summer vacation special, but sing a whole new song for it. And now that the special is out today on Disney+, the full song has also been released, and apparently? this rule.

Scarif, if you don’t remember, is the setting for Rogue One’s final act, the planet Jin Erso, Cassian Endor, and the crew infiltrate to steal the Death Star plans, and then all die horribly. It’s an odd place to hold a beach party for Lego’s Star Wars brand, especially since half of the Star Wars galaxy seems to be made up of planets of sand. But who is counting?

But Finn’s plans to get together for one last time soon fail when he leaves the group. While searching for his friends, he encounters three Force ghosts: Obi- Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Leia Organa, who each share unexpected stories from their holidays gone wrong, helped them understand that the holidays are more than just having fun.”

Remember, Yankovic plays Vic Vankoh in the special, which I’d still argue is a good Star Wars name, but far less than Yan Kovic.
