          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!

 Our Thoughts!

Giana is not a tom-boy in any way. But - that's a big but too- she does seem to get into Star Wars. I knew she would enjoy this and I was right! When Cartoon Network started showing Clone Wars I was shocked to walk into her room and find her watching it. 

She was so excited about the little figurine that came in the box. She has watched this DVD about 10x since we got it, and she has actually scratched it up pretty bad. But she always does. 

I watched it one time with her and was impressed with the animation and the picture & sound! I was also glad that it was a rather short DVD. It's not that I didn't like it. I just have a hard time sitting through movies nowadays, weellllll - really only kids movies. 

This DVD is jam-packed with numerous Special Features so Giana was super impressed with that! She is so funny because sometimes she puts DVDs in just for the Special Features. She especially loves it when the Special Features menu had a DVD game on it.  

Giana also loves Lego so this was a natural hit with her. She is actually a subscriber to the Lego Club Jr Magazine and was just reading it tonight. But what kid doesn't love Lego? 

Maybe she can share in her Star Wars love with my best friends husband and Star Wars enthusiast Josh!
We'll see!
