The LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles so far included a very interesting trailer (link at the end of this article), then some disappointing mini-episodes. However it looks like LEGO is gearing up for a lot more…
➡ First of all you can go to the LEGO Star Wars homepage and click on the glowing stars. Each of the stars reveals another short episode, a screen-saver or some other info about The Yoda Chronicles. Some of the episodes are actually pretty good (like the one featured below). More stars go “live” as time passes, so go back regularly to check for updates.
➡ Also, inside the latest LEGO Club Magazine there is a mini-magazine dedicated to LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles, which includes an introduction to the story and more info on what to expect:
Count Dooku has hatched a sinister scheme to use a Kaiburr crystal to create an army of evil warriors with enhanced Force powers. The wise Jedi Master Yoda has hidden the crystal away in a secret location, but as his former apprentice, Count Dooku knows exactly where to find it.
When the Kaiburr crystal is stolen, it’s up to Yoda – along with some old friends and new allies – to get it back before it’s too late. But who is the mysterious Jek-14… and what role will he play in the fate of the galaxy?
LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles unfolds throughout 2013 in the LEGO Club Magazine, online at LEGO.com/StarWars, and in an all-new trilogy of animated episodes on Cartoon Network.
Catch the first episode on May 29th and come back to the next issue for another special LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles collectible mini-magazine!
Within the mini-magazine there is also an interview with the LEGO designers behind The Yoda Chronicles. It is revealed that they have been working on a unique ship for The Yoda Chronicles, which will come with four very cool minifigures. It is also mentioned that they are doing something super cool with one of the minifigs. (Click image for larger view.)
➡ Then there is the LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles book from DK Publishing, which comes with an exclusive Special Forces Commander Clone Trooper. You can pre-order the book on Amazon right now for $10.90, which is 43% off the cover price of $18.99. The book is scheduled to ship around July 15. BUY HERE
The first in a brand-new series, LEGO Star Wars: Yoda Chronicles features themed spreads based on the legendary Yoda’s adventures, from his leadership of the Jedi council and his duels with Count Dooku and Darth Sidious, to his support of the Wookiees in the Clone Wars and his training of Luke on Dagobah. Specially commissioned photography shows minifigures and vehicles in action, with tons of storylines and facts that kids will love.
So between the book, the LEGO Club Magazine specials, the website specials, and the cartoon, it looks like The Yoda Chronicles will end up being something pretty unique. What do you think? 😉
