Star Wars and LEGO go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Besides being combined in a series of amusing video games and in toy sets, they’ve also been blended together for some entertaining television specials. It’s a lighter side of the Force, and don’t we all need to embrace the Light side?
In the next LEGO Star Wars special, Escape from the Jedi Temple, the heroes have to face Darth Vader and the Empire. From the official synopsis: “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.”
Hey, any time you give Sidious a John Cusack Say Anything moment is fine by me.
