Disney XD has released the first trailer for their new Star Wars animated series, LEGO Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles. The trailer invites us to "join the lighter side of Star Wars' most memorable characters." It looks like a fun and silly show that I wouldn't mind watching with my kids, but if I didn't have kids to watch it with I'd probably skip it. The first episode is called "Escape from the Jedi Temple," and it's described as being "filled with the Force and brick-tastic fun."
As seen in the trailer, the Emperor debuts his new theme -- "The Imperial March" -- and doesn't react well at its lukewarm reception. Han, Chewie, Luke, Leia, Yoda, and the entire gang (including a blaster-toting C-3PO) are back, ready to take on Darth Vader and the Empire.
It makes me sad that they'll be releasing this before Seth Green's show, Star Wars Detours. That one looked like it would have been fantastic.
The new series is set to air this Saturday on Disney Channel at 9pm ET/PT and this Sunday on Disney XD at 7pm ET/PT.
