LEGO releases new kits every year throughout the wide range of Star Wars film and TV shows, creating classic vehicles and locations featured in the trilogies, cartoons, and even their own original stories such as the Yoda Chronicles and the Freemaker Adventures.
Lately Disney has been partnering up their animators with the LEGO group for exclusive recreations of their new films, including Beauty and the Beast, Moana, and now Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. LEGO and Disney are commemorating the recent Digital HD debut and forthcoming release on Blu-ray and DVD of the film, which is currently rated a pretty x out of 5 by ComicBook.com readers.
The short two-minute video is hilarious and kid friendly, showcasing the different Rogue One sets released last year in promotion with the first Star Wars spinoff story. It includes a lot of the main story beats and character motivations, and a clever use of real world trappings that would make any fan of The LEGO Movie smile.
Unfortunately, it does not include the parts where everyone suffers horrific yet heroic deaths.
But it does have puns! Sweet, sweet Darth Vader puns!
Sure, it might have glossed over a few moments in the story, but it also manages to capture the overall plot without dwelling to much in spoiler territory. So even if you haven't seen Rogue One, you'll be able to get something out of this cute video without it ruining the entire film.
The movie will finally release to Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday.
Check out the video, and be sure to rate Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in the Movie Database below!

Directed by Gareth Edwards, it's the first of the new standalone features from Lucasfilm and Disney, which take place outside the core "Skywalker Saga" of films noted by an Episode number. Rogue One tells the story of the small band of rebels that were tasked with stealing the plans to the first Death Star.
