Some Star Wars “expert” I am. This nugget came across the wire today, and it surprised the heck out of me:
‘LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars,’ A Series of New Animated Shorts and Full-Length Episodes, to Debut Beginning Monday, Oct. 29, on Disney XD, YouTube, and DisneyNOW.’
So there’s that. And here are the full deets from Disney PR:
Comprised of eight shorts and four half-hour episodes, the series features LEGO versions of the fresh faces of the Star Wars galaxy alongside iconic heroes including Kylo Ren, R2-D2, Young Han, Chewie, Young Lando, BB-8 and General Leia.
The first five shorts will roll out daily the week of Monday, Oct. 29, – Friday NOV. 2, culminating in a compilation special highlighting three additional shorts on Saturday, Nove. 10 (11:00 a.m., EST/PST) on Disney XD and DisneyNOW. Following the debut of the shorts, four half-hour episodes will premiere Saturdays beginning Nov. 17 – Dec. 8 (11:00 a.m., EST/PST) on Disney XD and DisneyNOW.
Here’s a sneak peek at “LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars”:
“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”).
I am on this. Can’t wait to add this to my Star Wars repertoire.
