Droid Tales told from the Droids’ point of view on DVD **** 4 Stars
By Gabrielle Pantera
HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 3/18/2016 – While celebrating at an Ewok village after victory on Endor, C-3PO tells of the story when he first met Luke and Leia’s parents. R2-D2 slips away to investigate a mysterious stranger, is kidnapped and C-3PO goes in pursuit. As C-3PO searches for R2-D2 he tells the tales of their other adventures.
Charming and funny, Disney XD series for the whole family. The dialog is witty and the story of what the droids were doing during the humans’ adventures has surprises. Some jokes will pass right over the heads of the kids but adults will get them.
Included with the DVD are three sets of trading cards. If you liked the Lego Movie you will enjoy Droid Tales. Star Wars from the perspective on the droids. Walt Disney Home Entertainment, Lucasfilm and LEGO.
