One of the coolest things about my job is the arrival of new movies before they are released. I sat down on Tuesday night to watch this DVD and I will have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It was fun but it encourages kid of all ages to use their imaginations which is something each and everyone of us needs to do more often.
The episodes are:
Escape from the Jedi Temple – Luke gets his friends into some trouble and Yoda and the ghost of Obi-Wan decide they need to take his training to another level.
Race for the Holocrons – Luke searches for sacred crystals that could help him complete his training.
Raid on Coruscant – Luke raids the Coruscant to get the Holocrons back from the emperor.
Clash of the Skywalkers – The Emperor sends Darth Vader and his whole force to destroy Luke and recover the Holocrons
After headstrong Luke nearly delivers the good guys into Palpatine’s clutches, Master Yoda and the ghost of Obi-Wan Kenobi unearth the Holocrons – last remnants of the secrets of the Jedi – to further Luke’s training. But Darth Vader also seeks the Holocrons, and he’ll stop at nothing to get to them first! Meanwhile, courageous superclone Jek-14, a Force-sensitive clone, comes out of retirement to help bolster the Rebels. Share all the action-packed thrills of these interlocking, intergalactic adventures in LEGO® STAR WARS: The New Yoda Chronicles!
