Disney XD has recently acquired LEGO Start Wars: Droid Tales. The series which will be coming out later this year will tell the story of the Star Wars saga in 5 – 22 minute episodes. Starting with the Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace through Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales brings us the story through the eyes of R2-D2 and C-3 PO. But with a twist! As the duo sit around sharing their story with Luke, Han, Leia, Chewbacca and the rest of the Rebels at a victory celebration in Ewok Village on Endor, there is a kidnapping which will take us on new adventures mixed in with faces and locations we are familiar with and leads to the re-telling of the entire saga.
Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group shared “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,”
Jill Wilfert also shared the excitement that “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.”
Full of excitement, humor and fun, this series promises to become another instant favorite for Star Wars fans and will be coming to Disney XD just before the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (in theatres, December 18, 2015).
