A Star Wars Family Movie Night!
Did you shop on Force Friday? I wasn’t able to shop as I had to work and the kids had school. Boo. I missed out on some sweet Stars Wars Force Friday deals. Double boo. Though we missed out on Star Wars Force Friday, we did the next best thing. We watched new Star Wars movies at our Family Movie Night!
Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles
The first movie at our Family Movie Night was Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles. Since Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles is not due out til September 15, we were super excited to do a sneak preview of this new movie. We are huge fans of all things Lego, especially the Lego movies. I’ve lost track of how many times we have seen the Lego Movie!
For those with kids who are not quite ready for the Star Wars movies, Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles is a movie about the “lighter side of the Force.” Younger kids will get to known Luke, Darth Vader, and Yoda through this “action packed release.” Though we all knew about Luke, Emperor Palpatine, the ghost of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Darth Vader, it was fun to see the Stars Wars movies get the Lego treatment! With four complete episodes, plus a bonus alternate ending, of Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles, watch one episode at a time or watch all four episodes like we did. Lego Stars Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles is available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season One
Lego Star Wars is not the only animated movie in the Star Wars canon. A favorite of my son is Star Wars Rebels. Sold on Blu-ray and DVD, Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season One is now available. Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season One is packed with “15 episodes plus never-before-seen bonus material revealing the magic behind the making of the hit series.”
In Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season One “young hero Ezra Bridger joins the clever but motley crew of the starship Ghost in their resistance against the Empire.” As Imperial forces have occupied remote planet, Ezra and his new rebel friends — Hera, Kanan, Sabine, Zeb, and Chopper — “embark on daring adventures in their fight against oppression across the galaxy.” I’m not as familiar with Stars Wars Rebels, but fortunately I have my son to educate me!
