The fun begins following the victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, at the end of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. R2-D2 and C-3PO have gathered to regale Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other Rebels with the tales of their adventures that led to the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. An accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing, and suddenly you’re taken on a new journey that leads to the retelling of the entire Star Wars saga, as told by R2-D2 and C-3PO!
These LEGO Star Wars movies are some of the best that I’ve seen. They manage to take the lore of the Star Wars universe and inject hilarious jokes that appeal to the adult fans as well as the usual silliness that kids will love. The one thing that I really liked was that they basically gave us a whole DVD filled with the Star Wars Saga in LEGO form. From The Phantom Menace to Return of The Jedi, we get all of our favorite moments that we love in a release that is a tad bit under 2 hours. Yes, 2 hours! Normally LEGO DVD/Blu-rays aren’t anywhere near that length so I….I mean my son was extremely excited about that. The voice acting is spot on and in some cases I couldn’t even tell if those were the actual actors from the films or not. Impressive. Although this DVD doesn’t include any special features (which is a bit of a bummer) it does include a pack of trading cards which is a cool little extra. All in all this is definitely well worth picking up for the price and will entertain you….and yes, your children too. 9/10
