The second season of the Yoda Chronicles kicks off in the UK on Sunday 15th June with Escape from the Jedi Temple!
The second episode airs in the US on the same day and here is a teaser trailer which has appeared on the Star Wars YouTube Channel.
The first season of The Yoda Chronicles aired on Cartoon Network last year – who own the broadcast rights to the name of the series, hence the name of the series being altered to Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles!
The second season of The Yoda Chronicles starts in the US on the unofficial International Star Wars Day – May the Fourth!
In this special preview of LEGO Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles “Escape from the Jedi Temple,” Emperor Palpatine debuts his new theme music…and introduces his new apprentice, Darth Vader, who’s still getting used to the whole mechanical-legs thing!
The Yoda Chronicles tour is being held as responsible for the 40% increase in sales of LEGO Star Wars sets!
According to Toy News the tour attracted over 10,000 people and 14,000 LEGO Star Wars goodies were handed out to those who attended!
LEGO’s UK Brand Manager, Justin Clasby said: “The Yoda Chronicles Tour was a great success and allowed us to get closer to our consumers whilst engaging directly with thousands of LEGO enthusiasts and LEGO Star Wars fans alike.”
“The tour really encouraged children and families to build together, and was an ideal platform to introduce them to the new and exciting Yoda Chronicles that will unveil LEGO Star Wars secrets throughout 2013.”

The build up to the first episode of The Yoda Chronicles continues! As part of the build up LEGO have unveiled a life-size model of the recent UCS X-Wing Starfighter.
The build took LEGO builders in the Czech Republic four months to complete and a staggering 5,335,200 bricks! To support the LEGO a steel frame was built and as a result the X-wing weighs 20 tonnes! Measuring 13.1 metres long with a wingspan of 13.4 metres the life-size X-Wing is the largest LEGO model to ever be assembled!
The life-size starfighter was shipped from Europe, on a voyage that took 2 months to complete, in 34 parts which were assembled over night before being unveiled to the public today!
The model will be on display at Times Square for the next three days before being transported to LEGOLAND California where it will remain for the rest of the year!
The Yoda Chronicles premieres on 29th May and LEGO’s month long celebration of Star Wars continues! According to this video uploaded to the official LEGO YouTube Channel, something huge will be unveiled at Times Square… what could it be?
