        It's interesting that they're setting this during the Clone Wars but doing it in a completely different style than the show. I kind of wonder if this might be a test for further specials, as we already know that the Lego Star Wars combo is a popular one.

      I purchased the movie but will not take it out of the packaging when I can still see it for $4.50 in the theater. I go pretty much each week after work
