LEGO Star Wars special premieres July 22

File this one under the ‘so not for me.’

Lucasfilm/LEGO/The Cartoon Network have a press release today detailing The Padawan Menace, a standalone TV special that will premiere Friday, July 22.

Tour guide Master Yoda leads a group of rambunctious Jedi younglings through Senate chambers when he senses a disturbance in the Force. Summoned to help save the Republic, he discovers that one of the younglings secretly boarded his ship…and has a taste for adventure! Meanwhile, C-3PO and R2-D2 are put in charge of the boisterous group and find themselves in over their heads. As the evil Sith prepare to wreak havoc, it’s up to Yoda and the droids to ensure that their young charges aren’t torn to bricks!

No doubt the kids will love it.

    Since they don’t seem to mention any voice actors, I wonder if this show will be done in the style of the LEGO games, where characters don’t really speak, but mime, make non-word sounds, and sometimes hold up polaroids to communicate.

    i think this should be awesome.

    Yeah, looking forward to seeing this (whenever it’s shown in the UK that is), I’d rather see a LEGO SW show than any other ‘humour’ show that’s being developed.

    I love the LEGO games, so this may be right up my alley. What I’m not looking forward to are the inevitable fan bickering sessions about this being canon/not canon/whatever.
