Star Wars: Droid Tales

If you've played with the countless Lego Star Wars sets, watched one of the Lego Star Wars animated television specials or sat down with one of the many Lego Star Wars video games, you know that the company that makes plastic building blocks and the film studio responsible for a franchise's worth of space operas, are a match made in lightsaber-wielding heaven. The sensibilities just mesh in a way that produces wonderfully spirited, irreverent entertainment. But nothing could prepare you for the out-and-out fun of the new limited series, Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales, which premieres tonight at 9:30 p.m. on Disney XD. "Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales", is a five-episode miniseries that has an ingenious conceit: it's the entire Star Wars saga, told, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead-style, by C3PO (voiced, once more, by Anthony Daniels) and R2D2. The series takes place after the Battle of Endor that ended Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, as C3PO first recounts his adventures after being assembled by a young Anakin Skywalker. This first episode does a really killer job whittling down both Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and even introduces a nifty wraparound narrative wherein C3PO and Admiral Akbar team up to track down his missing spaceship (just go with it).
