Warning: This article contains spoilers for “Lego Star Wars Holiday Special.”

Disney+ debuted its new “Star Wars” spinoff “Lego Star Wars Holiday Special” on Tuesday, bringing fans back to a galaxy far, far away ... in LEGO pieces.

The story is simple — Rey, discouraged after not training Finn well to become a Jedi, heads out with BB-8 to find an ancient Jedi temple, where she expects to learn how to train him. She stumbles upon a crystal that takes her through time and space, where she drops in on a number of major moments from the “Star Wars” series.

We’ve pulled together this full list of moments you’ll find in the holiday special, assuming it’s something you’ll want to check out.

Finn uses Rey’s lightsaber

The opening scene shows Finn using Rey’s yellow lightsaber at the end of “The Rise of Skywalker.”

Luke training with Yoda — “The Empire Strikes Back”

Rey finds Luke and Yoda training together on Dagobah from “The Empire Strikes Back.”

  • “Participation trophies for Jedi, there are not.” — Yoda

Obi-Wan and Qui-gon — “The Phantom Menace”

Rey stumbles upon Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn, who are on a Trade Federation ship in “The Phantom Menace.”

  • “Who cares about a trade dispute?” — Obi-Wan

Obi-Wan and Anakin on the eleva— “Attack of the Clones”

Rey drops in on Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker riding an elevator as seen in “Attack of the Clones.”

X-Wing attack — “A New Hope”

Rey falls into Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing at the end of “A New Hope.”

Emperor and Darth Vader — “Return of the Jedi”

Rey arrives on the second Death Star seen in “Return of the Jedi.” There are some great lines here, including:

Darth Vader saying the “Death Star 2 feels kind of derivative” and they should rename it “Starkiller base.”

Darth Vader also gives the emperor a mug that says “Galaxy’s best emperor.” He says he got it from a gift shop on Batuu, which is the name of a fictional planet you visit at the Disneyland “Star Wars” experience.

Battle of Hoth revisited — “The Empire Strikes Back”

Darth Vader vs. Darth Vader have a lightsaber battle, as do Rey and Darth Vader in the Rebel Alliance’s Hoth base from “Empire Strikes Back.”

Return to Mustafar, Anakin vs Obi-Wan — “Revenge of the Sith”

Rey drops in on the Mustafar lightsaber battle between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. She battles Darth Vader in this scene, which is super trippy.

“The Mandalorian” moment — Baby Yoda!

Briefly, Rey and Darth Vader arrive in the world of “The Mandalorian,” who is with The Child (Baby Yoda). Cuteness.

Battle of Tatooine — “A New Hope”

There’s a huge battle on Tatooine between all the good guys and bad guys, including a legless Darth Maul and Mace Window.

  • Two Han Solo characters fight with Greedo. One says, “You want to shoot first?” “After you,” the other says.

Rey and Yoda have a sweet moment together, which is the first time they’ve shared a moment together.

Luke Skywalker from “Return of the Jedi” and Rey team up
