LEGO® STAR WARS The Empire Strikes Out™ Animated Special now available on DVD!

We are big Star Wars fans in our house, we have all of the movies (on vhs, dvd and Blu-ray… yes it is a bit excessive) toys and so much more. So when we found out that we would be able to check out the most recent lego Star Wars dvd, we were so excited. If you are a Star Wars fan, it is something that will make you excited too! 

LEGO® STAR WARS®: The Empire Strikes Out™ Animated Special Arrives on DVD.

Packed with Humor, Action and Fun – and an Exclusive Darth Vader LEGO Minifigure!

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (January 22, 2013) – After a record breaking debut on Cartoon Network, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm announced today that LEGO® Star Wars™: The Empire Strikes Out will release on DVD this coming March 26, 2013. The 22-minute original standalone special will bring the same tongue-and-cheek humor fans know and love in a brand new epic adventure featuring everyone’s favorite LEGO Star Wars characters. Distributed by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the DVD will include an exclusive collectible Darth Vader LEGO minifigure and is available now for preorder at

Filled with charm, action and irreverent humor this original story features characters, locations and vehicles across the entire LEGO Star Wars universe including Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, C-3P0, R2-D2, Darth Maul, and more. When the premiere of LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out aired on Cartoon Network, it became the number-one telecast of the day with kids ages 6-11 and boys ages 2-17. Written by Emmy Award winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), the show features many of the beloved Star Wars voice-actors fans know and love including Anthony Daniels, Sam Witwer, Ahmed Best and more.


Your favorite characters are back to save the galaxy in LEGO® Star Wars®: The Empire Strikes Out™. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance including heroic Luke Skywalker, swaggering Han Solo and steadfast Princess Leia have no time to celebrate their victory over the Empire as a new Imperial threat arises. But as Jedi-in training Luke embarks on this next mission, he discovers that his celebrity status as a “Death-Star-Blower-Upper” can be a double-edged lightsaber when he’s constantly mobbed by crazed fans. So much for secret missions! Meanwhile, Darth Vader and Darth Maul are locked in a hilarious “Sith-ling” rivalry as they compete for the Emperor’s approval. It’s an action-packed comic adventure that’s out of this world!

Our Take: 

My family adores Star Wars. From collecting just about all you can imagine that has to do with Star Wars if my husband had his say we would have posters all over the house. I have to put my food down with some things, but for the most part we still have a little Star Wars just about in every room.  Even down to my husband’s Star Wars tattoos, yes he is that big of a fan. Yes we have been to Star Wars weekend in Disney World, a few times it is a great way to enjoy each of the things we all love, Disney and Star Wars, and now that Disney owns the rights to Star Wars, I can’t wait to see what they will come up with next.  Last night we had a movie night, that game us some quality time together to just relax and have fun with a great star wars show. This was a great dvd, we all enjoyed it very much. 

This is a great show, that is full of Lego Star Wars action. My daughter is following in her daddy’s footsteps, and is just as big of a fan of the Star Wars universe as my husband is.  I love that you get a little Darth Vader mini fig with the dvd, my daughter loved playing with the mini fig while we all watched the movie. There is nothing cuter than a Lego version of Darth Maul, it is so small and cute! The dvd would make a great Easter basket stuffer, and for the cost of $15 (it is on sale for only $9.99 on Amazon) it is a great deal, for a last minute gift.
