The all-new animated Star Wars shorts have arrived to share the Force…
The first Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures animated shorts arrive today on StarWarsKids.com and the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, and they’re charming love letters to some of the saga’s greatest moments and icons. Featuring icons like Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Chewbacca. Princess Leia and our beloved R2-D2 and C-3PO the force is truly strong with them.
Developed with the animation studio Titmouse Animation, the shorts have a vibrant, modern look, falling somewhere between manga and a Star Wars Little Golden Book come to life. Each short encapsulates something about a character, their choices, and their path, taking inspiration from specific scenes and amplifying them.
R2-D2 – “A Loyal Droid”
This short shines a light on a determined Artoo. Part of the fun in setting him up is glimpsing Leia setting into motion the events of A New Hope. The playful escape across the Tantive IV is full of danger and little charming nuggets like the little double back with the ‘nothing to see here’ whistle from Artoo after they nearly run into Vader. Even in such a concise piece, the dynamic between Artoo and Threepio really comes through and is as charming and funny as ever.
If you’re a parent or older sibling who loves Star Wars and want to share it with the younglings in your family, Galaxy of Adventures could be their first step into a larger world.
