LEGO Star Wars Coming To Television

The LEGO Star Wars games have provided an endearing retelling of the entire Star Wars saga. If you've played the games and wished that the cutscenes lasted longer, you're in luck. An animated special based on the LEGO games is in the works, set during the Clone Wars era.

ComingSoon.net spied posters promoting the special at the Licensing International Expo 2011. According to the site, the show could be hitting televisions by late September.

It'll be interesting to see if the special follows through with the games' tradition of communicating plots with pantomimes and the occasional grunt and squeal. It might be tough to maintain viewers' attention for a lengthy period of time, but would adding voices strip away some of the franchise's charm? We'll have to wait and see.
