Tonight, LEGO enthusiasts will go to the galaxy far, far away.
In a special Star Wars-themed episode of Fox’s hit series LEGO Masters, host Will Arnett and guests BB-8, C-3PO, and R2-D2 will challenge the remaining contestants to build their own droids and replicate iconic scenes inspired by the Star Wars saga. Only the most impressive builds, to quote Darth Vader, will please the judges and move forward. It will be a must-watch for all LEGO (Jedi) Masters, and for Arnett, this episode is a meaningful one.
“Star Wars had such a huge impact on me early on,” Arnett tells StarWars.com. “I remember the day I saw A New Hope in the theater in ‘77. I went back three more times. All these years later, to be able to be working with LEGO and then have C-3PO and R2-D2 next to me is like the fulfillment of a crazy lifelong dream. My sons were incredibly excited for this episode and it was just amazing to share it with them.”
Watch the episode this evening, Wednesday, April 8 (9:01-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Fox, and get a sneak peek in the gallery below!
