Overview: The fun begins following the victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, at the end of STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI. R2-D2 and C-3PO 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 you're taken on a new journey that leads to the retelling of the entire STAR WARS saga, as told by R2-D2 and C-3PO!
DVD Verdict: Well, if you love both Star Wars and Lego THIS is, as they all are in the series, the show for you (and your kids) to watch! All your favorite characters come to life in an exciting new way when you sit down to watch the Lego figures acting out a whole new Star Wars legend!
In this new season you get a whole new take on the Star Wars back story because now it's told through the eyes of both R2-D2 and C-3PO! This terrific season includes five (5) episodes:
Exit from Endor
Crisis on Coruscant
Mission to Mos Eisley
Flight of the Falcon
Gambit on Geonosis
Using the vocal talents of Eric Bauza (Spongebob Movie, Ben 10: Omniverse, Batman: Assault on Arkham) as Luke Skywalker/Porkins Pilot; Michael Daingerfield (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Catwoman) as Han Solo/Admiral Ozzel/Biggs Pilot; Anthony Daniels (Star Wars Franchise) as C-3PO, and more, 'Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales' is a blast from start to finish.
In truth though, they are always entertaining and the thing I appreciate most about them is they are funny! Who doesn't like a good laugh? As mentioneed above, this particular DVD focuses on Droid Tales. R2-D2 has always been my favorite since I was a small kid so it was fun to watch his story. We get to see Star Wars through the eyes of the droids and learn lots of fun facts about them - and laugh along the way to! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the added bonus of an exclusive trading card set packed inside each DVD!
