4/3/13: Lego Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out on DVD

I have to admit that I am not a big Star Wars fan.  I am not sure that I have ever watched the movie all the way through.  However when I saw Lego Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out as an Animated Special on DVD I knew that my son would love it.  What I didn't expect is that I loved it too.
 It was hysterical, I was laughing out loud and even made my husband watch it when he got home because I thought it was so funny.
So hysterical!
 Plus when you buy the DVD it comes with this cool Lego Darth Vader which any Lego and Star Wars fan will love.
There are so many funny lines in the movie.
Plus everyone likes Legos.
All of your favorite characters are in it.  Yoda of course!
 More about the DVD:
After a record breaking debut on Cartoon Network, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm announced today that LEGO® Star Wars™: The Empire Strikes Out. The 22-minute original standalone special will bring the same tongue-and-cheek humor fans know and love in a brand new epic adventure featuring everyone’s favorite LEGO Star Wars characters.

Filled with charm, action and irreverent humor this original story features characters, locations and vehicles across the entire LEGO Star Wars universe including Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, C-3P0, R2-D2, Darth Maul, and more. When the premiere of LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out aired on Cartoon Network, it became the number-one telecast of the day with kids ages 6-11 and boys ages 2-17.
This totally cracked me up.
 Written by Emmy Award winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), the show features many of the beloved Star Wars voice-actors fans know and love including Anthony Daniels, Sam Witwer, Ahmed Best and more.
The heroes of the Rebel Alliance including heroic Luke Skywalker, swaggering Han Solo and steadfast Princess Leia have no time to celebrate their victory over the Empire as a new Imperial threat arises. But as Jedi-in training Luke embarks on this next mission, he discovers that his celebrity status as a “Death-Star-Blower-Upper” can be a double-edged lightsaber when he’s constantly mobbed by crazed fans. So much for secret missions! Meanwhile, Darth Vader and Darth Maul are locked in a hilarious “Sith-ling” rivalry as they compete for the Emperor’s approval. It’s an action-packed comic adventure that’s out of this world!
Disclosure:  I received this DVD for review purposes.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
