The fun begins following the victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, at the end of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. R2-D2 and C-3PO 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 you’re taken on a new journey that leads to the retelling of the entire Star Wars saga, as told by R2-D2 and C-3PO! It’s hilarious and playful, packed with all your favorite interlocking characters. LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales is intergalactic thrills for the whole family!
My girls are big Star Wars fans, and Tee is especially into LEGO Star Wars right now. In fact, that’s all she has on her birthday wishlist! LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales is a five-part LEGO Star Wars mini-series that aired on TV last year. It’s basically a playful retelling of the first six Star Wars movies and a little bit of Star Wars Rebels, all while C-3PO tries to rescue R2-D2 from a mysterious kidnapper.
We watched Droid Tales on TV, but it’s nice to have them all in one bundle on this DVD. The kids have been watching them over and over, and they know when all the good parts are coming up. There’s one scene in the first episode where Yoda is facing off against Count Dooku and he starts juggling on top of a ball along with circus music. Every single time, they screech with laughter, “Mommy! Mommy! Look at Yoda!”
These kid-friendly episodes are a great way to introduce young kids to the Star Wars movies but they definitely appeal to adult fans too, with plenty of in jokes that go over the kids’ heads. For example, as Qui-Gon Jinn is talking to Anakin about becoming a Jedi, Watto is in the background selling red flags. 😉
The DVD also includes a small exclusive trading card set which Tee claimed the moment they came out of the box and then promptly mislaid somewhere in the house.
- Episode 1: Exit from Endor
- Episode 2: Crisis on Coruscant
- Episode 3: Mission to Mos Eisley
- Episode 4: Flight of the Falcon
- Episode 5: Flight of the Falcon
LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales is available at Amazon or wherever DVDs are sold.
