LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales is a five-part LEGO Star Wars non-canon mini-series that aired on Disney XD. The series retells the story of the live-action Star Wars films, from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace through Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, as well as an adaptation of the Star Wars Rebels episode "Droids in Distress", and a Clone Wars mission created entirely for the show, all from the perspectives of C-3PO and R2-D2.
Plot summary[edit | edit source]
LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales began shortly after the Battle of Endor. C-3PO and R2-D2 tell those assembled around them about the story that led them both to the battle. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "an accidental kidnapping leads to a new adventure that progresses to the re-telling of the saga in the chronological order, starting from The Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi."
