The LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises animated television series aired on the Disney XD channel between mid-February and early May this year with five episodes. The series is now over, so I thought to post them here in case you missed out. The story of these episodes takes place prior to the First Order’s attack on Jakku in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, and tells never-before-told stories about Kylo Ren, Han Solo, Finn, Rey, BB-8, Maz Kanata and more. So grab your popcorn and enjoy the show! 🙂

LEGO videos are always enjoyable because of the great animation and funny humor. LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises, is no exception. My only complaint is that the episodes were too short. But remember that LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is coming soon! And in the meantime you can also check out the currently available LEGO Star Wars sets at the Online LEGO Shop.
