As we count down to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, LEGO and Lucasfilm are set to retell the entire Saga from the perspective of R2-D2 and C-3PO in the new animated series LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales, and it has been announced that the first episode will air on Disney XD this coming Monday, July 6th at 6.30pm. Subsequent episodes will air on a monthly basis leading into the hotly-anticipated release of Episode VII this December.
Following their victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, seen at the close of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, C-3PO and R2-D2 have gathered to regale Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other Rebels with the tales of their adventures that led to the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. An accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing and suddenly viewers are taken on a new adventure that leads to encounters with familiar faces and places that prompt the re-telling of the entire saga. The series offers all of the playful humor that viewers expect from LEGO Star Wars.
The first episode will retell The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, with episode two focussing on The Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith, and A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi each getting their own dedicated episode.
