With Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting theaters this December and it will be kicking things off for an all new generation of fans to enjoy. So what better way to get new fans (i.e. younger kids) ready for the upcoming film, than by finding a new way to re-tell the other films. Thus, Disney XD will be bringing LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales to the small screen sometime later this year. The show will be five, 22-minute episodes that will re-tell the Star Wars saga from the Droids’ point of view:
Set after the Rebel Alliance victory on Endor seen at the end of Return of the Jedi, the droids are regaling the assembled of their adventures that led them to their present situation. An accidental kidnapping leads to a new adventure that progresses to the re-telling of the saga in the chronological order, starting from The Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi.
What’ll be interesting is this is the first post-Return of the Jedi story we’ll be seeing! Sure it’s in LEGO form, but since the formation of the new canon, that time period has been one big blank. So it’ll be nice to see what they show off. No word yet on exactly when we’ll be seeing this show, or who’ll be running it, but hopefully we will hear more about it soon!
What do you guys think about this new Droid Tales show? Are you looking forward to it?
