A simplified description of the current atmosphere of the Star Wars franchise is that it’s both caught between two camps (“it’s okay” and “everything sucks now”), and that it’s “tired” (Solo’s bad box office was officially due to movie fatigue, having Disney-Lucasfilm announce that they’ll space films further after IX). But where LEGO Star Wars is concerned, everything looks promising. The sets are selling good and the minifigures are sought after. Now LEGO’s going to bring Star Wars to the TV in the form of LEGO Star Wars All Stars, a 3D animated series coming on Disney XD and DisneyNOW.
From the trailer they posted, it looks like LEGO Star Wars All Stars will cover all characters throughout the prequel, original and sequel sagas of the massive space opera franchise. That includes (young) Han Solo and Lando, Leia, Admiral Ackbar, Rey and Kylo Ren, and Roger (Roger) the Federation battle droid.
Seeing all the comical takes on various Star Wars plot lines as interpreted in LEGO builds and minifigures is sure to be a treat even for the burned-out main-media followers, as LEGO Star Wars All Stars promises to be the epic series that keeps on giving.
Catch the series starting next month on Saturday, November 10.
