My kids love Legos. When we visited downtown Disney back in May, the kids spent a lot of time in the Lego store. We were all excited to put together our first LEGO Star Wars construction set a few weeks ago, and then we had fun watching Star Wars Droid Tales afterwards.
As a self processed Star Wars fanatic, I love all of the movies and have watched them so many times that I have memorized so many of the scenes. Star Wars Droid Tales is an animated lego version of the Star Wars episodes, and it allows me to introduce my kids to my favorite movies of all time. My daughter has become interested in the animated Star Wars programs and now even my youngest will watch it along with us.
The show is directed by Michael Hanger and written by Michael Price. The first episode had a really cool twist of humor injected into the script. It started out with the premise of conquering the second death star again. Afterward they celebrated by having a big party on Endor with breakdancing. C3PO used R2-D2 as a garbage can and vacuum cleaner. Then C3PO started telling the story, but the audience fell asleep 30 seconds into it. So funny!
I loved the Lego spoofs; they add a different comedic twist to the stories I enjoy so much. This episode brought to life everything we have been thinking of after watching all of the theatrical movies. Examples of this include: making fun of the annoying Jar Jar Binks, the characters asking why Queen Amadala needs to avoid signing that treaty, and the wimpy voice for Darth Maul. I especially thought the selling of the red flags and danger signs from Wado were completely hilarious.
The people involved in creating this show took all of the right scenes for each of the Phantom Menace and Clone Wars movies and created a funny Lego spin to them that was not only entertaining but funny and mysterious as well.
Additionally, I enjoyed watching the video game of battle droids and Yoda facing off against Count Dooku, but I would have liked to see Yoda fight rather then do a circus juggling act before Count Dooku escapes. I’m very interested to find out who that mysterious rouge is?
The narrator provided simple clarification on what was happening in the story, catering to the younger viewers. It allows kids to follow along and better understand the story. There are funny moments throughout the Star Wars saga itself but Star Wars Droid Tales takes it to the next comedic level.
Not only was Star Wars Droid Tales funny but I am curious to know who that mysterious rogue is and will C3PO ever find the kidnapped R2-D2? I will certainly stay tuned to find out. Whether you’re a big Star Wars fan or just an occasional viewer, you will love the Star Wars Droid tales episodes.
