Entertaining fun for Star Wars and Lego fans

My kids get too scared trying to watch the real Star Wars movies. Even my oldest, age 7, has yet to sit through more than a few minutes before it gets too intense for him. These comedic Lego Star Wars episodes are great though. None of my three young kids has complained about them being scary and I haven't noticed anything inappropriate. The kids are all laughing and enjoying them and begging to watch again. I rated it 4 and up although we even let my three year old watch with his older brother and sister, so maybe I should have rated it 3 and up.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (4 ):

This laugh-out-loud addition to the Lego Star Wars saga is a witty blend of new characters and storyline with old favorites. Vader and Palpatine take center stage initially, but the plot quickly pivots to focus on an impish Padawan, Rowan, who seems destined for greatness. Of course, to accomplish that, he must exercise patience and a willingness to heed instruction, somewhat reminiscent of a couple of other Padawan learners we've met in Star Wars productions.

The Freemaker Adventures is best enjoyed with a good command of Star Wars lore in your repertoire, but, even without knowing your Ewoks from your tauntauns, you'll find yourself laughing in many spots because of the sheer brilliance of the Lego-inspired humor. Those who do know the background (and foreground, so to speak, given the show's place in the Star Wars time line) will appreciate familiar quotes ("I've got a bad feeling about this") and comical twists on characterizations.
