I just received the above images and the press release below regarding the LEGO Star Wars TV special we reported on previously. LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace will be making its debut on Friday July 22, 2011 on Cartoon Network at 7:00pm Eastern/Pacific. The show will follow the style and humor set by the video games.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LEGO® STAR WARS® Premieres an All-New,
Original Animated Special on Cartoon Network

Premiering Friday July 22, LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace™
Will Feature Signature Family-Friendly Fun, Spirited Action and Irreverent Humor

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (July 7, 2011) – After the runaway success of their wildly popular building sets, video game collaborations and animated shorts, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm will join forces once again for an all-new adventure – their first-ever original television special. Premiering on Cartoon Network on Friday, July 22 at 7:00 p.m. (ET, PT) in high-definition computer animation, the 30-minute original standalone special – LEGO® Star Wars: The Padawan Menace – will feature the charm, action and irreverent humor that have become the signature style of LEGO Star Wars animation collaborations.

Featuring situations, characters and locations from throughout the entire Star Wars Saga, the original adventure is written by Emmy® Award winner Michael Price (The Simpsons) and produced by Academy Award-winning Animal Logic, the production company behind Happy Feet.

“We’re certain that fans of LEGO play and the Star Wars universe will be as excited by this new original animated LEGO Star Wars episode as we are,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “Developing original animated content leveraging the LEGO and Star Wars brands is incredibly rewarding for us because it not only engages and entertains fans in original stories and adventures that further their imaginative play, it authentically delivers on the inherent values and fun that LEGO play brings to the partnership.”

To date, Star Wars is the first and most successful LEGO licensed product collection in the company’s history, generating more than 200 LEGO models and approximately 275 LEGO minifigures inspired by the Saga, which has also spurred a blockbuster collection of videogames, selling 25 million units to date worldwide. In addition to its popularity among younger fans, a significant portion of the LEGO Star Wars consumer fan base is made up of nostalgic adults and franchise collectors.

LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace is scheduled to air multiple times on Cartoon Network during the weekend including: Friday, July 22 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT), Saturday, July 23 at 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and Sunday, July 24 at 4:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

A routine Jedi Academy field trip is turned into a rip-roaring comic adventure in LEGO Star WarsTM: The Padawan MenaceTM. Tour guide Master Yoda leads a group of rambunctious Jedi younglings through Senate chambers when he senses a disturbance in the Force. Summoned to help save the Republic, he discovers that one of the younglings secretly boarded his ship…and has a taste for adventure! Meanwhile, C-3PO and R2-D2 are put in charge of the boisterous group and find themselves in over their heads. As the evil Sith prepare to wreak havoc, it’s up to Yoda and the droids to ensure that their young charges aren’t torn to bricks!

LEGO Star Wars TV Special

LEGO Star Wars animated special? If this article at ComingSoon.net is true, then you’ll be able to see a LEGO Star Wars special hit the small screen this September, in addition to whatever the new animated series will be.

An exciting surprise at the Licensing International Expo 2011, LEGO Star Wars is set to receive a small-screen special this fall. ComingSoon.net spotted the below art for the television event and, while details were few, was told that the special is likely for late September.

Based on the popular video game series, the LEGO TV special is being created in addition to a second, previously announced Star Wars cartoon series. That new series has been given the following official update:

Today, George Lucas is hard at work on a second animated series that will complement ‘The Clone Wars’, taking ‘Star Wars’ in a completely new and fun direction

With the franchise celebrating its 35th anniversary next year, LEGO Star Wars should be a welcome addition to the ongoing animated series, the upcoming 3D re-release of The Phantom Menace and the first-ever release of both trilogies on Blu-ray this fall.
