The recently concluded first season of Disney XD’s “Star Wars Rebels” was apparently just the beginning of the network’s plans to bring the galaxy far, far away to the small screen. And their next trick sounds, dare I say, awesome. According to the Hollywood Reporter, we can soon look forward to “Star Wars: Droid Tales,” which will feature C-3PO and R2-D2 just after “Return of the Jedi” rehashing the first six films in the franchise over the course of five episodes set to air later this year.

Oh, whole thing is done with Legos, like “The Lego Movie.” It’s sort of a Cliff’s Notes for the whole saga so far, told with Legos. Awesome.
