Lego Star Wars Continues its 20th Anniversary Celebrations With a Brand New Tantive IV Set
14 April, 2019, 21:28
Star Wars:The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels are animated series that have earned massive followings over their numerous seasons.
Star Wars fans explore the Lego Star Wars exhibit at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. The Mandalorian-which also stars Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, and Giancarlo Esposito-premieres on November 12.
The project won a place in the Guinness World Records for being the largest display of Lego Star Wars minifigures ever. Princess Leia feature both a new printed skirt as well as alternative white legs (so she can sit down). And this won't be the only Star Wars series coming to Disney+: A prequel to the 2016 flick Rogue One is also in the works, starring Diego Luna in his film role of Cassian Andor.
We'll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding The Mandalorian as soon as more information becomes available.
Unfortunately, Lucasfilm has yet to officially release it online, meaning we'll have to make do with the leaked version you'll see up above, but it's clear enough to get a pretty good look at what awaits us. Which iconic character from the franchise would you like to see appear in the series?
Another thing we know already is that Favreau is unleashing some heavy-duty, deep-dive nostalgia.
Though some wondered if soft drinks from this universe would be sold inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Disney confirmed this week that they would be selling Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Sprite and Dasani bottled water in specially-designed bottles that will fit in with the Star Wars theme. He travels the outer reaches of the galaxy alone, far away from the laws of the New Republic.
The Mandalorian will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist is also on board as a co-executive producer. This LEGO Star Wars 75244 interpretation of Tantive IV, seen fleeing from an Imperial Star Destroyer in the opening moments of Star Wars: A New Hope, faithfully recreates all of the Rebel cruiser's signature details, including an elongated hull, detachable escape pods, elevating gun turrets, cargo hold and 11 massive engines at the back.
LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV will be available exclusively at shop.LEGO.com from May 3.
