‘LEGO Star Wars: All Stars’: A New Animated Series Spanning All Eras to Debut This Monday
The Star Wars galaxy is adding another animated series to its arsenal, with LEGO Star Wars: All Stars! Who doesn’t love LEGO? The series will kick off with a series of daily shorts starting this coming Monday, followed by four half-hour format episodes. Lucasfilm recently revealed the animated series of shorts Forces of Destiny is no longer in production, so this new LEGO series mixed between shorts and full episodes will fill that void nicely. Here is the press release followed by a look at the new series!
“LEGO® Star Wars: All-Stars,” a new animated adventure series that spans all Star Wars eras, will debut beginning MONDAY, OCT. 29, on Disney XD YouTube and DisneyNOW. Comprised of eight shorts and four half-hour episodes, the series features LEGO versions of the fresh faces of the Star Wars galaxy alongside iconic heroes including Kylo Ren, R2-D2, Young Han, Chewie, Young Lando, BB-8 and General Leia.
The first five shorts will roll out daily the week of MONDAY, OCT. 29, – FRIDAY, NOV. 2, culminating in a compilation special highlighting three additional shorts on SATURDAY, NOV. 10 (11:00 a.m., EST/PST) on Disney XD and DisneyNOW. Following the debut of the shorts, four half-hour episodes will premiere Saturdays beginning NOV. 17 – DEC. 8 (11:00 a.m., EST/PST) on Disney XD and DisneyNOW.
“LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars” is a production of Wil Film, the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm. Developed for television by Bill Motz and Bob Roth (“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures,” “Penguins of Madagascar”), they join Jill Wilfert and Erik Wilstrup as executive producers (“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures”).
