LEGO STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Out

LEGO STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Out is an original animated story based on both the LEGO STAR WARS toy sets and the classic and prequel Star Wars movies. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance (Luke Skywalker, Princesss Leia and Hans Solo) are back, but when Luke embarks on his latest mission to stop Darth Vader and his crew, but his newfound celebrity as the "Death-Star Blower-Upper" makes it hard to escape the screaming hordes of fans! LSW: The Empire Strikes Out first aired as a television special in September 2012, and is now available to take home DVD!

Special Features

Although LEGO STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Out doesn't really come with extras on the disc, however a huge draw is the mini LEGO figurine of Darth Vader that is included with the box set.

The Bottom Line

LEGO STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Out is full of back-to-back slapstick and jokes based on the original films that fans and Star Wars newbies alike can enjoy. Highlights include the sith-ling rivalry elements between Darth Maul and Darth Vader and the running gag with the Luke's female fans running amok throughout the adventure is a fun wink to the audience. This is definitely a cartoon that'll make you chuckle, perfect for viewing with younger siblings. The only thing missing is some extras to make it last longer!

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
