"Lego Star Wars: The Padawan Menace" is an original standalone TV special airing on Cartoon Network. After the runaway success of their wildly popular building sets, video game collaborations and animated shorts, The Lego Group and Lucasfilm will join forces once again for an all-new adventure—their first-ever original television special. "The Padawan Menace" will feature the charm, action and irreverent humor that have become the signature style of Lego Star Wars animation collaborations.

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!

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 mini-figures 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 nostalgic adults and franchise collectors.

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 Academy Award-winning Animal Logic, the production company behind "Happy Feet."
