|LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles|
LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles is a five-part animated series, that debuted on Cartoon Network on May 29, 2013. It was written by Michael Price, who also wrote two previous LEGO Star Wars specials. The first two parts were released on DVD exclusively in North America at Wal-Mart, on October 15, 2013. In 2014 the series was retitled as The New Yoda Chronicles. The series also has several short tie-in Mini Movies.
LEGO Star Wars returns in epic style with THE YODA CHRONICLES, a thrilling, funny and action-packed new LEGO Star Wars story told in three animated TV specials! Set in the “Prequel” Star Wars timeline, THE YODA CHRONICLES stars the one and only Yoda—the Jedi Master who has seen it all, done it all, and taught generations of Jedi Knights—in an all-new adventure. With the help of a fresh class of Padawans, Yoda leads the Jedi in a desperate fight to stop Darth Sidious and his minions from creating a new super-weapon that could crush the Republic and win the war for the forces of Evil.
Episode 4, Escape from the Jedi Temple, was aired on May 4, 2014, and took place during the reign of the Galactic Empire. It was originally titled Quest for the Holocron. Episode 5, Race for the Holocrons, continues on after the fourth episode and aired on June 15, 2014.
Lucasfilm Ltd. allowed the LEGO group free reign with developing the storyline. The team worked to make sure everything looked consistent if it would have been made with LEGO bricks, as well as adding humor to the story.
