The relationship between the LEGO Group and the Star Wars franchise is not just about producing awesome LEGO sets, but also releasing fun games, and entertaining television shows. In 2011 we got the LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace, in 2012 the LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out, in 2013 the LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles, in 2015 the LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales, in 2016 the LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises, and LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. They all expand on the Star Wars story in a humorous, and family-friendly way. And LEGO even released some sets with the character, vehicles, and scenes from the TV shows! Recently, Lucasfilm and Disney announced a new series titled LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars. Below are the details, trailer, and schedule. 🙂
Fans of bricks and blasters, get ready! LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars, a new animated adventure series that spans all Star Wars eras, will debut Monday, October 29, on Disney XD YouTube, and DisneyNOW. Comprised of eight shorts and four half-hour episodes, the series features LEGO versions of the latest heroes and villains of the Star Wars galaxy alongside iconic characters including Kylo Ren, R2-D2, young Han, Chewie, young Lando, BB-8, and General Leia (watch trailer below).
The first five shorts started airing daily the week of Monday, October 29, to Friday, November 2. If you missed them, don’t worry! There will be a compilation special highlighting three additional shorts on Saturday, November 10 at 11:00 a.m. EST/PST. Following the debut of the shorts, four half-hour episodes will premiere Saturdays from November 17th to December 8th (11:00 AM 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). We can also expect (or, at least hope) that LEGO will release at least a couple of sets related to LEGO Star-Wars: All-Stars at some point. The Star Wars expansion sets are always fun!
If you are not familiar with LEGO Star Wars films, I highly recommend you check them out. They include LEGO-ized versions of favorite Star Wars characters (which is funny enough already), extra characters made just for the TV show, and lots of witty LEGO humor.
