Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (6 ):

This is a laugh-out-loud parody of the Star Wars prequel stories, in much the same vein as The Empire Strikes Out. With Yoda in the starring role, there's the expected bevy of jokes at the expense of his trademark speech pattern, of course, but those are just the icing on this show's comical cake. What's most fun are the persistent jabs at the live-action movies themselves, with rapid-fire inside jokes that will fly above the heads of kids tuning in but will delight those viewers with at least a working knowledge of the original films' storyline.

The Lego Star Wars joint franchise has gained traction with fans, all of whom will celebrate the fact that Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles spans three episodes rather than just one. Of course, this means more screen time for the marketing side of the show, since nothing makes Lego more enticing than animated Lego. But that's a relatively small price to pay for this gem of creativity and comedy.
