Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles is a American LEGO animated web and television special film series produced by Lucasfilm Limited, WILFILM and Lego company.

Plot[change | change source]

LEGO Star Wars returns in epic style with THE YODA CHRONICLES, a thrilling, funny and action-packed new LEGO Star Wars story told in three animated TV specials! Set in the “Prequel” Star Wars timeline, THE YODA CHRONICLES stars the one and only Yoda—the Jedi Master who has seen it all, done it all, and taught generations of Jedi Knights—in an all-new adventure. With the help of a fresh class of Padawans, Yoda leads the Jedi in a desperate fight to stop Darth Sidious and his minions from creating a new super-weapon that could crush the Republic and win the war for the forces of Evil.

The story of season one was set during the Clone Wars and season two was set during the Galactic Empire of from Star Wars A New Hope to Star Wars Empire Strikes Back.
