May 9th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

LEGO Star Wars will soon return to Cartoon Network with The Yoda Chronicles, a new Star Wars story that will be told in three animated specials. The first 30-minute special titled “The Phantom Clone” will premiere on Wednesday, May 29 at 8pm ET/PT on CN, with the second and third installments to air later this year.

Set in the prequel era, “The Phantom Clone” centers on Jedi Master Yoda and a fresh class of Padawans who set out to stop Darth Sidious and his minions from creating a new super-weapon that could crush the Republic. The special will also introduce Jek 14, an all-new original clone character who has been enhanced by the Force. The Simpsons’ Michael Price wrote the script.

Here’s the trailer in case you missed it.
