The Star Wars Saga to be Retold from a LEGO Point of View
Via The Hollywood Reporter:
The five-episode limited series ‘Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales’ will retell the saga chronologically and air just in time for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’
The Star Wars movies are getting a Lego re-telling just in time for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
But this is not Star Wars in 22 minutes. The conceit is that the movies are being retold through the eyes of robots C-3PO and R2-D2 in a brand new story.
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.
Details of who is directing or writing the episodes were not revealed.
Lego and Disney XD will reveal airdate information in the coming months.
