The five-part animated comedy Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales is now on its way to DVD, featuring a slew of new and retold adventures from the Star Wars saga.
The synopsis for the miniseries reads as follows:
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!
The series itself retells the events of the Original and Prequel Trilogies in a comedic light, along with a droid-centric adaptation of the Star Wars Rebels episode “Droids In Distress”. In addition, a new story is told involving R2-D2 being kidnapped after the victory on Endor, leading C-3PO to muster up the courage to save his companion.
