LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales Coming Soon
Disney and LEGO have announced that the Star Wars movie franchise will be retold in an animated TV series called LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales. This series is scheduled to air on Disney XD later this year and the series will feature five 22-minute episodes that will retell the Star Wars saga in chronological order.
Star Wars: Droid Tales will see R2D2 and C3PO telling the stories from Episode I The Phantom Menace up to Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The airing date of the new series is yet to be confirmed, but it is expected to air before this December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“Since we introduced our first LEGO Star Wars set in 1999, we have seen and heard form countless Star Wars fans who have used LEGO bricks to tell their own version of this timeless story,” 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 humour 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.”
Could we see some new LEGO merchandise to tie in with these animated shorts?
