Disney and Hasbro, two of the biggest toy companies in the world, have teamed up for a unique and surprising joint venture. LEGO Star Wars will be available for purchase in October for the first time ever! What makes this partnership especially interesting is that it marks the first time either company has created a movie based on a video game. With this unique toy, they are not only setting new high expectations for themselves, but also for their fans, who have waited patiently for such a release. Let's take a closer look at what we can expect from this amazing new partnership.
LEGO Star Wars: The Wrath of Khan is set to debut in theaters October, and the massive second installment of the movie LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will debut in December of 2021. In The Wrath of Khan, the Resistance must protect the planet of Hoth from the Galactic Empire. An evil dark knight, Kylo Ren, arrives on the planet to seek out a mysterious Force artifact known as the "death crystal". Once Ren finds the crystal and touches it, he becomes trapped in time and the First Order arrives to crush the Resistance. LEGO Star Wars: The Wrath of Khan hits theaters in September, so parents and kids will be able to see the film during the special Halloween weekend promotion event.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens takes place ten years after the destruction of the Death Star in the original Star Wars movie. In the sequel, the Empire is on the rise again and has formed a new fleet to battle the rebellion. The main hero in the movie is a young Stormtrooper called Finn, who leads a group of rag-tag rebels fighting the Empire. The story takes place over eight hours during the night of the Imperial attack on the resistance's base on Hoth. You can see how much time passes when you watch the movie using the big LCD screen at the theater or on DVD. It adds up to hours of movie time.
Kids love the story because they get to use words like double-slashed and asteroid. If they use the wrong words (like bounty hunter instead of enforcement officer) then their statement is incorrect. In an effort to make their statement correct, the kids simply add more letters to their statement and the math goes haywire. For example, if they say, "A bounty hunter got away with three Jakes!" Instead of saying, "A bounty hunter got away with three Jakes!" the correction is, "Finn and a stormtrooper crashed their space ship!"
This game is so popular that it is now taught in some schools. Kids learn how to correctly use words like saber-toothed tiger, space ship and laser gun. It is really cool to watch Luke Skywalker and the gang blast into space. The kids will probably not remember all the details they will be writing in their book, but they can still use the novelties to explain the action. They will learn that the skywalk was supposed to connect the two buildings on the ends but somehow it just fell down.
The LEGO Star Wars video games and action figures are also very popular with younger kids. When the movie was released, there were no real stories except for the ones written by George Lucas himself. He wanted people to enjoy his movie as much as possible so he included plenty of side quests and characters to make the story come to life. Kids will also love the opportunity to play as iconic stars like Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Darth Vader. LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tale is not only a hot toy for kids this summer, but it will be around for many years as well.
