My kids really loved Star Wars Lego: The Empire Strikes Out on DVD. I watched along with them and it was tremendously funny! It is based loosely on Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, although it was a parody on the original--and acted by Star Wars Lego minifigures. The box comes with an exclusive minifigure: Darth Vader with medal around his neck. The box reads for ages 6+, and it should be noted that the toy is a choke hazard for children under 3-years old, as it contains little pieces.
I think that fans of Star Wars or Star Wars Lego would enjoy adding this title to their DVD movie library. I liked that the DVD came with the Darth Vader minifigure, as my son loved it and played with it during the movie and still plays with it today. I think that it added to the film's excitement for him. My only criticism of this film was that it was very short with a running time of 22 minutes. Even my kids commented on the movie's length. Generally my expectation for a child's film is at least 60 minutes, with 90 minutes to 2 hours being the usual length. However, the film was enjoyed and we will definitely watch it again.
Star Wars Lego: The Empire Strikes Out was just released on DVD March 26th from Lucasfilm. Available in stores everywhere!
