“Star Wars” in “LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales “
May 29, 2015 By Alex Eyre
Disney XD is also currently home to the animated hit series “Star Wars Rebels” which is set after “Episode III Revenge of the Sith” and 5 years before “Episode IV: A New Hope.” Now the LEGO Group have announced that Disney XD has acquired LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales and will premiere it later this year.
The animated LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales series will re-tell the legendary Star Wars saga in chronological order from “Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace” up through “Episode VI: Return of the Jedi” in five 22 minute long episodes.
“Since we introduced our first LEGO Star Wars set in 1999, we have seen and heard from countless Star Wars fans who have used LEGO bricks to tell their own version of this timeless story, re-enacting favorite scenes and imagining new story lines,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales gives us an opportunity to share highlights of the Star Wars story with a sense of humor and excitement that can only be conveyed through the LEGO brick, and will be a fun resource for families as they gear up for the next movie.”
LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales starts with the victory celebration on Endor in the Ewok village following the events of “Episode I: Return Of The Jedi.” C-3PO and R2-D2 have gathered with Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other Rebels to regale them with to story of their adventures that led to the events of “Episode I The Phantom Menace,” during this story time some kidnapping will apparently take the droids on a new adventure, while also squeezing in a retelling of the entire saga from The Phantom Menace through to Return Of The Jedi.
There has been no released date given, but we do know it will be before Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives on December 18.
