Watch: Poe Dameron Comes to the Rescue in First ‘Force Awakens’ LEGO Short

by  in Comic News, TV News Comment

Following its broadcast premiere Monday night, Disney XD has released the fire installment of its animated short-form series “LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises.”

In “Poe to the Rescue,” Resistance pilot Poe Dameron (with help from C-3PO and BB-8) hatches a plan to snatch a captured Admiral Ackbar from the clutches of the First Order’s Captain Phasma and Kylo Ren.

The nearly seven-minute short features all the humor and silliness we’ve come to expect from LEGO shorts, with BB-8 “disguising” a Resistance ship by slapping on First Order logos, C-3PO going on about his red arm, and Ackbar shouting “It’s a trap!” as he’s jolted from sleep.

Announced just last week, the miniseries takes place prior to the events of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and tells new stories starring characters from the film.
