With the first season of Star Wars Rebels coming to a close next week, fans will be left without any new Star Wars content for several months, until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18. Thankfully, Disney XD is helping to fill the void in Star Wars programming with a new five-episode series entitled Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales, which will debut later this year before Star Wars: The Force Awakens' theatrical debut.
The five 22-minute episodes will be an animated take on all six Star Wars movies, with a new twist. The movies are being retold through the eyes of droids C3PO and R2D2 in a brand new story set after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. The droids are seen telling their story of how they ended up on Endor, shortly after the Rebel Alliance victory, when an "accidental kidnapping" leads to a brand new adventure that "progresses to the re-telling of the saga in the chronological order, starting from Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace to Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi."
Disney XD would not reveal who is writing or directing Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales, or if any actors from the Star Wars franchise will lend their voices to the series. Lego and Disney XD will announce the air date within the next few months. We'll keep you posted as soon as any official details are released.
