Lucasfilm and Lego are partnering up once again! But this time it isn’t what you think. Lucasfilm and Lego will be joining forces to create their first-ever original television special. This television show will premiere on Cartoon Network on Friday, July 22 at 7:00 p.m. (ET, PT). This 30 minute T.V. show will be featuring all the characters from the Star Wars saga but instead of cartoon drawings it will feature Lego characters, but that’s not all. The T.V. show will also be featuring situations and locations from throughout the entire Star Wars saga!
After hearing about this new television show I freaked out! I have been a Star Wars fan for years, and the fact that my entire family is into Lego’s I couldn’t wait. And I believe that if you are a fan of Lego’s or Star Wars you are definitely going to enjoy this show! “Developing original animated content leveraging the Lego and Star Wars brands is incredibly rewarding for us because it not only engages and entertains fans in original stories and adventures that further their imaginative play, it authentically delivers on the inherent values and fun that Lego play brings to the partnership.” – said Jill Wilfert (vice president of licensing and entertainment for the Lego group)
Well one thing is for sure; this new T.V. show is certainly going to have me glued to the T.V for a long time! From all of the epic action of star wars put into the fun and creative world of Lego’s this new T.V. show is certainly going to blow you away!
