Don't let the thought of a Force Awakens prequel give you the wrong impression, this new Disney web series is ridiculously enjoyable. So far Disney has released Poe To The Rescue (featured above), The Trouble With Rathtars, Hunting For Han and Rey Strikes Back. The shorts are semi-canon and feature voice work by some Star Wars veterans I don't want to spoil. Each episode in the series is loosely related and they converge a bit in Rey Strikes Back. Not sure when Disney will be done with the series but after watching these I want a proper Force Awakens Lego cartoon series!

Disney can't seem to hit a foul ball in anything related to Star Wars recently as these shorts are a great way to begin Star Wars week! Stay tuned to Cheerful Ghost for more Star Wars news and check back this May the 4th for something extra special.

I like how "Poe to the Rescue" picks up where the C3PO comic left off.

Yeah, I want to read that one.

The first episode really feels like a How It Should Have Ended video. Similar humor and style :)

So how canon is this? I assume Poe didn't actually bowl down a bunch of stormtroopers with a helmet. And BB-8 sounds so incredibly wrong. Lego is usually better about that.

Fan wanking aside, this was a lot of fun!

That's why I think they are semi-canon. The events happened, but the exaggeration for comedy isn't to be taken as real. At least, that's how I watched them.

JJ says Poe bowling down stormtroopers with his helmet is SO canon.
