LEGO SW: The Padawan Menace DVD & BD

Posted By Mike on July 23, 2011

Following last evening's airing of LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace, we have word of the special's September 16th Blu-ray and DVD release along with news of an upcoming tie-in book from Scholastic. Amazon.com lists the book with a January 1, 2012 release date but January 1st is a Sunday. Look for that date to get revised as we draw closer to the end of the year. Amazon specs are listed below and our own Jovial Jay was nice enough to provide an image of the cover.

Reading level: Ages 4-8
Paperback: 32 pages
Publisher: Scholastic Paperbacks (January 1, 2012)

And now let's get to that Blu-ray/DVD press release for LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace. Note that pre-orders are WalMart exclusives.

LEGO? STAR WARS?: The Padawan Menace? Animated Special Arrives on Blu-ray and DVD September 16
Features Signature Family-Friendly Fun, Spirited Action and Irreverent Humor - Along with Two Bonus Shorts and an Exclusive Minifigure!

SAN FRANCISCO, July 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- After the Cartoon Network debut of their first-ever original television special, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm will join forces once again to bring LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace to Blu-ray Disc and DVD. Launching on September 16, the 22-minute original standalone special will feature the charm, action and irreverent humor that have become the signature style of LEGO Star Wars animation collaborations and will include five LEGO Star Wars shorts, as well as an exclusive, collectible minifigure.

LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace BD/DVD combo pack is available now for pre-order exclusively at WalMart.com.

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 Oscar-winning Animal Logic, the production company behind Happy Feet.

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 adult fans and franchise collectors.

A routine Jedi Academy field trip is turned into a rip-roaring comic adventure in LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace. 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!
