The New Yoda Chronicles to air May 4th on DisneyXD


MakingStarWars.Net discovered that a new LEGO Star Wars program will be airing on DisneyXD on May the Fourth. The New Yoda Chronicles: Escape from the Jedi Temple looks set in the classic trilogy timeframe, with Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon as well as LEGO Star Wars character JEK-14. The new show was first hinted at several months back with a new toy in the LEGO catalog.

The program airs at 7 pm and 9pm ET/PT. (The video above lists showtimes for Disney Channel Asia, which gets it on May 3rd, as does the UK.)

If you look closely, the LEGO title has been removed from the show title, as well as the addition of the word “New” to The Yoda Chronicles. These changes may have been done to neatly get by any existing deals with the previous U.S. broadcaster, Cartoon Network, as well as re-brand the show to fit the new storytelling timeframe. Notice that the word “Rebels” is mentioned in the trailer!
