Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles

Your favorite Star Wars heroes are back with four complete episodes (plus a bonus alternate ending!) that unleash the lighter side of the Force.

After headstrong Luke nearly delivers the good guys into Palpatine’s clutches, Master Yoda and the ghost of Obi-Wan Kenobi unearth the Holocrons – last remnants of the secrets of the Jedi – to further Luke’s training. But Darth Vader also seeks the Holocrons, and he’ll stop at nothing to get to them first! Meanwhile, courageous superclone Jek-14, a Force-sensitive clone, comes out of retirement to help bolster the Rebels. Share all the action-packed thrills of these interlocking, intergalactic adventures in LEGO® STAR WARS: The New Yoda Chronicles!

My Thoughts

 My son has always been a huge fan of Star Wars Legos, and seeing them come to life on the television screen was a huge thrill for him. This series is tons of fun because all of your favorite Star Wars characters including Luke, Yoda, and Darth Vader all make an appearance in Lego form.  Chewy is my favorite!  This DVD set includes four different episodes.

Escape from the Jedi Temple - Luke gets his friends into some trouble and Yoda and the ghost of Obi-Wan decide they need to take his training to another level.

Race for the Holocrons - Luke searches for sacred crystals that could help him complete his training.

Raid on Coruscant - Luke raids the Coruscant to get the Holocrons back from the emperor.

Clash of the Skywalkers - The Emperor sends Darth Vader and his whole force to destroy Luke and recover the Holocrons

I think it's so cool how they are able to take these toys and make them into a television show. It encourages my children to use their imagination when they play with their Star Wars Legos. In their mind, they come to life the same way they do on the screen. It's a fun and exciting series with lots of action, and I hope they will keep it going for many years to come.
