Tomorrow, March 1st, 2016, the Lego Star Wars Droid Tales collection is released on DVD with all five episodes that aired on Disney XD! The collection features C-3PO, R2-D2, Leia, Han, Luke, Ackbar, and more in LEGO form! Best of all, Anthony Daniels voices C-3PO!!! Your good feeling about this movie will never turn into a bad feeling about this movie and it will remain a good feeling about this movie! So grab this LEGO Star Wars collection, sit down with some popcorn and get ready for an epic LEGO Star Wars adventure!
The story begins just after the Battle of Endor and the celebration of their victory. C-3PO receives his memory from R2 and begins telling the story of The Phantom Menace and the Attack of the Clones. Unfortunately, R2-D2 is Droid-napped by a MYSTERIOUS CAPTOR and C-3PO must rescue his best friend with the help of Admiral Ackbar and his ship, Daisy Mae.
The whole series revolves around C-3PO’s quest to find R2-D2 and rescue him from the MYSTERIOUS CAPTOR. C-3PO’s determinations leads him across the Star Wars universe with stops in Coruscant, Mos Eisley, and Geonosis. At each stop, C-3PO regales the people he meets with epic Star Wars Saga tales involving himself and R2-D2 (hence the title Droid Tales). You could quite literally catch up on the whole sage by watching these five episodes before you watch The Force Awakens. However, the stories are a bit different than I remember them so I am guessing C-3PO’s memory was a little damaged after the three decades of war. For example, I don’t remember C-3PO serving as a Flight Attendant on Bail Organa’s ship…I wonder if this is canon now…
Nor do I remember Luke and Han “bumping” into an imperial probe droid and explaining that their reason for being on Hoth was to Snow Board. Although, if that were the case, I would so join them.
And I know for a fact that Emperor Palpatine never joined the Ghost crowd at the end of Return of the Jedi. Although, this is really funny and a great addition to the story.
With the changes also comes LEGO Star Wars hilarious additions to the plot. I found myself laughing through the whole series. One part in particular had me almost rolling on the floor to the amusement of everyone in the room. Maybe it is just my sense of humor but the whole “Danger Signs” and “Red Flags” from Watto had me unable to breath from laughing so hard. It made me love LEGOS and their animated series even more.
Actually, I think any Lego and/or Star Wars fan will have a good feeling about LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales. Let me just say, this is not just for kids! Adults will love this as well. There is a ton of fan humor for us adults and there is plenty of animated Lego adventures for the kids in the room. In other words, this is fun for the whole family! Let’s not forget that it has Anthony Daniels, which makes this whole thing beyond epic and a 5 star rating in my book. I would have made it the uber rare 6-star rating if James Earl Jones had voiced Darth Vader.
