Last week I was with a group of about 100 other Star Wars geeks as we visited Lucasfilm at an event sponsored by LEGO in San Francisco. They treated us to a tour, food, drinks and then led us down to George Lucas’s theatre!
Once inside the theatre we were treated to something so top secret that no one outside of Star Wars and LEGO even knew about it. Since that amazing night I have been sitting on this news and FINALLY I can reveal to you what we watched!
LEGO STAR WARS DROID TALES! LEGO STAR WARS DROID TALES!!!
Yes there is a brand new show coming to Disney XD called LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales! We got to preview some uncut footage and while I am not able to tell you what I saw, I can share a bit of information from the LEGO press release. The show is going to be a “Re-telling of classic Star Wars adventures in LEGO® brick form will help fans of all ages “catch up” on the legend.”
“The animated content series consists of five 22-minute episodes that re-tell the Star Wars saga in chronological order from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace up through Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Disney XD is also currently home to the animated hit series Star Wars Rebels.”
The LEGO press release goes on to say:
“As its title suggests, Droid Tales is a re-telling of the Star Wars universe through the eyes of C-3P0 and R2-D2. Following their victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, seen at the close of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, C-3PO and R2-D2 have gathered to regale Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other Rebels with the tales of their adventures that led to the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. An accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing and suddenly viewers are taken on a new adventure that leads to encounters with familiar faces and places that prompt the re-telling of the entire saga. The series offers all of the playful humor that viewers expect from LEGO Star Wars.“
Air date is yet to be determined.
Are you excited?
