LEGO and STAR WARS have been a match of legendary proportions. A “peanut butter and chocolate” marriage of pop culture icons, you could say. Now that my oldest daughter is into both LEGO and STAR WARS, she absolutely loved when Cartoon Network premiered LEGO STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES OUT last year. We actually still have it on our DVD all these months later, but this spring we can let it go as Lucasfilm, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, and LEGO have announced a DVD release for March 26… complete with an exclusive DARTH VADER Minifigure!
LEGO STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES OUT
HOLD ON TO YOUR BRICKS….FOR AN ALL-NEW ANIMATED ADVENTURE!
Filled with charm, action and irreverent humor this original story features characters, locations and vehicles across the entire LEGO Star Wars universe including Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, C-3P0, R2-D2, Darth Maul, and more. When the premiere of LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out aired on Cartoon Network, it became the number-one telecast of the day with kids ages 6-11 and boys ages 2-17. Written by Emmy Award winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), the show features many of the beloved Star Wars voice-actors fans know and love including Anthony Daniels, Sam Witwer, Ahmed Best and more.
