Disney XD has garnered great success with its LEGO form animated Star Wars series, which is why they’ve gone ahead and produced another one. LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales will be a five-part 20 plus minute per episode series that will premiere sometime in July in the U.S.
Like past LEGO Star Wars series, this one too will tie-into the chronology of the live-action films albeit with more tongue in cheek humour and comedic references. The LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales will take place following the rebels’ 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 humour that viewers expect from LEGO Star Wars.
LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales premieres on Disney XD in July in the U.S. No air date has been released yet for the series on Disney XD Asia.
