Plot summary [ ]

THE EMPIRE STRIKES OUT

The movie begins just as the rebels destroy the Death Star. Luke Skywalker and Han Solo fly back to the rebel base on Yavin 4, where Princess Leia Organa is briefing the rebel troops. She says that, since the rebels destroyed the Death Star, the Empire is probably planning a counter-strike, so all the rebels should evacuate to their secret base on Hoth. As they do this, Luke, R2-D2, Han, and Leia will attack a stormtrooper base on Naboo, with Han and Leia gathering Gungan Warriors and Luke and R2-D2 finding the base's location. As they all leave hurriedly, they leave behind C-3PO, who is devastated until he finds out that Chewbacca and the Millennium Falcon have also remained behind.

Han and Leia left to greet Boss Nass and the Gungan warriors that would be assisting them. Luke finds the stormtrooper base, but as he tries to contact Han and Leia regarding its location, his location is given away by some fangirls of his. He tries to flee from them, attempting to wear a Darth Vader costume, though this fails and he is forced to flee the planet.

Meanwhile, Darth Vader confronts his officers on an Imperial Star Destroyer, Admiral Piett, Admiral Ozzel, and General Veers. Admiral Ozzel assures him that he sent probe droids to track Skywalker, though the Skywalker that the droids were tracking was Anakin Skywalker, Darth Vader. In anger, Vader warns Ozzel that he has failed him for the last time, but Firmus Piett taunts him over the fact that Ozzel will fail them again if he lives, leading to a fight which Vader puts an end to. Later, Emperor Palpatine arrives and plans to rebuild the Death Star out of LEGO pieces with Darth Vader and Darth Maul, whom Vader is surprised and upset to hear has returned. Maul and Vader soon develop a sibling rivalry, and Vader jumps at the opportunity to leave and hunt down the Millennium Falcon, which had left Yavin 4 after C-3PO misinterpreted a message Luke had sent him as a cry for rescue.

While flying, Luke's X-wing starfighter and Darth Vader's TIE Advanced collide, resulting in Vader crash-landing on Tatooine and Luke crashing into a Star Destroyer, where, still in his Darth Vader costume, is mistook by the Imperials on the ship for Darth Vader. On Tatooine, Vader is captured by Jawas, who attach droid pieces to him and attempt to sell him. Vader, however, uses the force to free himself and construct a podracer to escape on.

On Naboo, Leia, Han, and the Gungan warriors go to Luke's last destination, finding the stormtrooper base and planning a surprise attack, only for Chewbacca and C-3PO to crash land the Millennium Falcon on them, alerting the stormtroopers and starting a battle, resulting in the heroes being forced to surrender. However, Luke arrives in his Darth Vader costume and orders the stormtroopers' AT-AT Walkers to destroy the stormtrooper base. He then attempts to leave with the "prisoners", but Darth Vader arrives, unmasks Luke and starts dueling with him, while the Gungan warriors, Han, and Leia, with the help of X-Wing Starfighters, fend off the Imperials. Darth Vader is about to reveal that he is Luke's father, but C-3PO convinces Luke's young fans to annoy Vader instead by showing them a picture of Anakin Skywalker at age 19, forcing him to flee before he can tell Luke. Luke and his friends then leave the planet, taking out an Imperial Star Destroyer sent after them in the process.

Palpatine discovers that while Maul had been in charge of building the new Death Star, he had made it look like himself, which Darth Maul thought was "awesome", much to Palpatine's horror. Vader's fans cause him to fly into the "Darth Star", destroying it, and the debris hits the Star Destroyer's view-ports, creating a vacuum that sucks Darth Maul into space. Overjoyed at Darth Maul's disappearance and the destruction of Maul's Death Star, Palpatine hugs Vader and praises him. Soon, in the style of the awards ceremony at the end of A New Hope, Palpatine awards Vader the "Employee of the Month" award, and when Darth Vader's fans catch a glimpse of Vader's face beneath his mask, they are no longer crazed over him and chase after Darth Maul instead. Overjoyed with the recent turn of events, Vader pats the back of one of the stormtroopers standing attention at the event, inadvertently causing all of the stormtroopers to fall over like dominoes. Palpatine cries, "Vader!" angrily, ending the movie.

She says that, since the rebels destroyed the Death Star, the Empire is probably planning a counter-strike, so all the rebels should evacuate to their secret base on Hoth.

Notes

  • The special featured many references to the Star Wars saga:
    • Like in LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace, the beginning has an opening crawl similar to the six Star Wars movies. However, the narrator from The Clone Wars is reading the opening crawl.
    • Han and Luke both call Leia "sister" at one point, but when Luke says it, he senses that there is some irony in his words, referencing the discovery made in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi that Luke and Leia are siblings.
    • Before attempting to execute one of his Imperial Officers, Vader says, "You have failed me for the last time," a line that he also says in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. It is possible this Imperial Officer, is Admiral Ozzel, who is yet to be realized in LEGO form, for he has the same features as Ozzel.
    • In the scene where Bib Fortuna is selling devices resembling iPhones, he speaks in Twi'lek. While the captions say that his words translated into "Do you want a cell phone?", this is a joke, as he says the exact same words in Return of the Jedi when greeting C-3PO and R2-D2, a case in which he was obviously not mentioning cell phones.
    • R2 ejects Luke's lightsaber into the air for him to catch and use, a tactic they also used in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
    • Maul separates into two halves frequently, referencing his defeat in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
    • When Han shoots a Stormtrooper attempting to arrest him, C-3PO criticizes him for shooting first, sparking a debate between them. This is a reference to a change made in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope to have Greedo shoot first as opposed to Han, as George Lucas did not want to send the wrong message to viewers. This change has upset many fans, some of them claiming that Han shooting Greedo first was morally justified as it was obvious that Greedo would have killed him if he had not acted. Han uses an argument similar to this in his fight with C-3PO.
    • When Vader and Luke duel, Luke shouts "You killed my father", prompting Vader to attempt to reveal the fact that he is Luke's father, mirroring the famous scene from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. However, he is interrupted numerous times, and is thus not able to reveal this information.
    • The scene where the Jawas capture Darth Vader closely mirrors the scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope where they capture R2. When the Jawas blast Darth Vader, he makes the sounds that R2-D2 made when the same thing happened to him in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, then falls forwards onto his face, groaning, just as R2 did.
    • When Vader lands in Tatooine, he shouts "I've got sand. up my NOOOOOSE!!", a clear reference to his first scene, in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, when he shouts "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. " after being told of Padme Amidala's (his love, and former wife) death.
    • A scene featuring TIE Fighters shooting at the Millennium Falcon also closely mirrors a similar scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
    • When Luke accidentally loses his hand after a Tie Fighter shot at his X-Wing cockpit, it resembles Darth Vader cutting off his hand in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
    • Before the rebels destroy the Star Destroyer, Han says, "You're all clear, kid, now let's blow this thing and go home! Again," referencing his famous line near the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
    • The "Employee of the Month" awards ceremony at the end of the special is similar to the medal ceremony at the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
    • Luke's X-Wing Starfighter crashes into the Super Star Destroyer the same way Arvel Crynyd's A-Wing starfighter did.
    • Also, after Luke's X-wing crashes, Admiral Piett says that he is honored by Luke (in a Darth vader costume)'s presence, like Moff Tiaan Jerjerod said in Return of the Jedi.
    • When Darth Maul appears, he is singing the word "awesome" to the tune of Duel of the Fates (the song from the duel scene in The Phantom Menace).

    Product description

    Your favourite characters are back to save the galaxy in LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance, including heroic Luke Skywalker, swaggering Han Solo and steadfast Princess Leia, have no time to celebrate their victory over the Empire as a new Imperial threat arises. But as Jedi-in-training Luke embarks on this next mission, he discovers that his celebrity status as a "Death-Star-Blower-Upper" can be a double-edged lightsaber when he's constantly mobbed by crazed fans. So much for secret missions! Meanwhile, Darth Vader and Darth Maul are locked in a hilarious "Sith-ling" rivalry as they compete for the Emperor's approval. It's an action-packed comic adventure that's out of this world.

    Отзывы критиков о мультфильме «Lego Звездные войны: Империя наносит удар», 2012

    «Это твоя сцена!»

    «Lego» — это целый мир. Целая индустрия. Такая же, как и «Звёздные войны». А когда одно соединяется с другим, получается такой компот, который утолит жажду каждому ценителю этих вселенных!

    «Lego Звёздные войны: Империя наносит удар» идёт следом по дате выхода мультфильмом после «Падаванской угрозы». Но в каком порядке смотреть эти зарисовки — совершенно неважно.

    Здесь ещё больше подрывных шуток, которые выстёгивают вселенную Лукаса. И делает это не глумливо. А так, чтобы сам мэтр был доволен. Но главным ориентиром и показателем качества всё равно ведь остаётся зритель. Мне неведомо: почему такая забавная пародия не искупана в лучах славы. Но то, что это произведение более чем достойно — это непреложный факт!

    Тут идёт совмещение трилогии воедино. Причём гармонично. Казалось бы, как может такой с виду сумбур сложиться в пазл! А вот может!

    Из новых лиц здесь появляется Императорр, Дарт Мол… Это из заметных. Больше времени дано Чубакке и Вейдеру. Главное, что здесь прозвучал «Имперский марш»!

    Также идёт обыгрывание ситуаций, которые по хронологии событий у Лукаса были бы невозможны. И хоть я сказал про совмещение всей вселенной воедино, я имею ввиду, что именно это и делает плацдарм и фундамент для построения собственно собственной вселенной, где разгул шутеек, приколов и всех слов-синонимов, которые делают настроение картине и зрителю.

    Смотреть необходимо всем тем, кто знает «Звёздные войны»! И… приятного вам этого самого просмотра.

    Совмещение трилогий

    «Lego Звездные войны: Империя наносит удар» является еще одним сравнительно продолжительным мультфильмом по вселенной Звездных войн и его смело можно считать одним из самых успешных в серии. Это второй к ряду проект после «Lego Звездные войны: Падаванская угроза», в котором все действующие лица в виде героев киносаги исполненных в виде человечков Lego, уже не жестикулируют, а произносят полноценные диалоги. Как казалось раньше, не стоило разбавлять смешную мимику персонажей диалогами, но в тоже время мультфильмы не могли развиваться в виде оторванных от фильмов сюжетов. Так что, по моему мнению, изменение озвучки лишь добавило массу поводов для новых комичных ситуаций и сделало данные проекты ближе к стилю мультсериала Сета Рогена «Робоцып: Звездные войны», но в тоже время сохранилось то детское обаяние Lego проектов, которые без всяких острых шуток могут завести любого зрителя, несмотря на возраст и любовь к творению Джорджа Лукаса.

    «Lego Звездные войны: Империя наносит удар» — это такой себе кино-капустник, события в котором происходят после каноничной битвы при Явине-4 и уничтожении Звезды смерти, то-есть после событий четвертого эпизода Саги. Наши герои расстаются чтобы найти новое укромное место для повстанцев. Например Хэн и Лея встречаются на Набу со старым знакомым из первого эпизода — глуповатым королем народа гунганов Боссом Нассом, а Люк Скайуокер постоянно отбивается от настырных фанаток-тинейджеров всевозможных галактических рас!

    Нельзя не отметить и появление во времена Оригинальной трилогии старого доброго, ну или очень злого, Дарта Мола. Можно считать это удачной пародией на воскрешение этого казалось-бы убитого героя в мультсериале « Звездные войны: Войны клонов», и по поводу чего разразились жесткие споры фанатов канона.

    Как всегда в подобных проектах по Звездных войнах, создатели идеально вплели в сюжет многие тонкости повествования, известные в основном только фанатам, но в тоже время и обыкновенному зрителю будет интересно понаблюдать за гэгами и словесными перепалками. Не смотря на то что фильм озвучен, английские фразы в нем не столь закручены и если вы учили язык в школе, советую смотреть его в оригинале, не пожалеете!

    Ох уж это Lego…

    Во всем мире дети в взрослые любят конструкторы Лего. Ведь это очень просто и увлекательно — из обычных на вид деталек собирать целые дома, машины и даже огромные города! Лего следит за популярными компьютерными играми и фильмами и выпускает конструкторы по данной тематике и просто не мог пропустить Звездные Войны! Это и занимательные конструкторы, и веселые игры(которые мне очень нравились, когда я еще не была фанатом). И вот недавно, решила посмотреть одно интересное видео Empire Strikes Out. Это один из самых смешных мультиков, которые я видела в последнее время!

    Казалось бы, как еще можно рассказать историю Оригинальной Трилогии? Все же победили, все узнали, все построили и все разрушили… Но нет! Нашему вниманию предлагается уморительная история произошедшего после взрыва Звезды Смерти, в исполнении конструкторов Лего. И после вышеупомянутого взрыва вся компания отправляется на Набу(как ни странно!) — Люк — уничтожать казармы штурмовиков, Лея и Хан — заключать союз с гунганами, забыв при этом 3РО и Чуи на Явине. А Император вместе с Дартом Вейдером и… Дартом Молом! шаг за шагом, по кубикам создают новую Звезду Смерти. Все они попадают в невероятные и веселые приключения, которые могут окончиться как мы и не ожидали!

    Лично мне нравится все связанное со Звездными Войнами. Поэтому я очень долго смеялась над шуточками и поворотами событий в данном мультике! В нем соединили все каноны, всю историю, даже приквельную. Начнем с гунганов — их забавная манера говорить — убила наповал! Невероятное появление Мола — это было нечто: его пение, меч с множеством лезвий… А сумасшедшие фанатки — я бы точно вместе с ними бегала бы за Скайуокерами! А как порадовали переодевания! Еще самым запоминающимся была фраза Я твой отец! — в весьма необычном представлении!

    Этот мультик рекомендован к просмотру всем-всем фанатам Star Wars. Лично я, пересматривая его уже раз десятый, очень весело провожу время! Огромное спасибо за великолепную озвучку и дубляж Невы-фильм — слушать уже знакомые голоса героев, одно удовольствие.

    И да Пребудет с Вами Сила!

    Synopsis [ edit ]

    The movie begins just after the rebels destroy the Death Star. Luke Skywalker and Han Solo fly back to the rebel base on Yavin IV, where Princess Leia Organa is briefing the rebel troops. She says that, since the rebels destroyed the Death Star, the Empire is probably planning a counter-strike, so all the rebels should evacuate to their secret base on Hoth. As they do this, Luke, R2-D2, Han, and Leia will attack a Stormtrooper base on Naboo, with Han and Leia gathering Ankura Warriors and Luke and R2-D2 finding the base's location. As they all leave hurriedly, which causes Leia to lose her hair briefly, they leave behind C-3PO, who is devastated until he finds out that Chewbacca and the Millennium Falcon have also remained behind.

    Han and Leia left to greet Boss Nass and the Ankura Warriors that would be assisting them. Luke finds the Stormtrooper base, but as he tries to contact Han and Leia regarding its location, his location is given away by some young girl fans of his. He tries to flee from them, one of his attempts being to wear a Darth Vader costume, though this fails and he is forced to flee the planet.

    Meanwhile, Darth Vader confronts his officers on a Star Destroyer, one of which assures him that he sent probe droids to track Skywalker, though the Skywalker that the droids were tracking was Anakin Skywalker, Darth Vader. In anger, Vader tries to execute this officer, but Admiral Piett taunts the one in trouble, leading to a fight which Vader puts an end to. Later, Emperor Palpatine arrives and plans to rebuild the Death Star out of LEGO pieces with Darth Vader and Darth Maul, whom Vader is surprised and upset to hear has returned. Maul and Vader soon develop a sibling rivalry, and Vader jumps at the opportunity to leave and hunt down the Millennium Falcon, which had left Yavin IV after C-3PO misinterpreted a message Luke had sent him as a cry for rescue.

    While flying, Luke's X-Wing Starfighter and Darth Vader's TIE Advanced almost collide, resulting in Vader crash-landing on Tatooine and Luke crashing into a Star Destroyer, where, still in his Darth Vader costume, is mistook by the Imperials on the ship for Darth Vader. On Tatooine, Vader is captured by Jawas, who attach droid pieces to him and attempt to sell him. Vader, however, uses the force to free himself, turn the Sandcrawler into a playground and construct a podracer to escape on.

    On Naboo, Leia, Han, and the Ankura warriors go to Luke's last destination, finding the Stormtrooper base and planning a surprise attack, only for Chewbacca and C-3PO to crash land the Millennium Falcon on them, alerting the Stormtroopers and starting a battle, resulting in the heroes being forced to surrender. However, Luke arrives in his Darth Vader costume and orders the Stormtroopers' AT-AT Walkers to destroy the Stormtrooper base. He then attempts to leave with the "prisoners", but Darth Vader arrives, unmasks Luke and starts dueling with him, while the Ankura warriors, Han, and Leia, with the help of an X-Wing Starfighter, fend off the Imperials. Darth Vader is about to reveal that he is Luke's father, but C-3PO convinces Luke's young fans to annoy Vader instead by showing them a picture of Anakin Skywalker, forcing him to flee before he can tell Luke. Luke and his friends then leave the planet, taking out an Imperial Star Destroyer sent after them in the process.

    Palpatine discovers that while Maul had been in charge of building the new Death Star, he had made it look like himself, which Darth Maul thought was "awesome", much to Palpatine's horror. Vader, attempting to escape his fans, flies into the "Darth Star", destroying it, and the debris hits the Star Destroyer's view-ports, creating a vacuum that sucks Darth Maul into space. Overjoyed at Darth Maul's disappearance and the destruction of Maul's Death Star, Palpatine hugs Vader and praises him. Soon, in the style of the awards ceremony at the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Palpatine awards Vader the "Employee of the Month" award, and when Darth Vader's fans catch a glimpse of Vader's face beneath his mask, they are no longer crazed over him and chase after Darth Maul instead. Overjoyed with the recent turn of events, Vader pats the back of one of the Stormtroopers standing attention at the event, inadvertently causing all of the Stormtroopers to fall over like dominoes. Palpatine cries, "Vader!" angrily, ending the movie.

      • Han and Luke both call Leia "sister" at one point, but when Luke says it, he senses that there is some irony in his words, referencing the discovery made in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi that Luke and Leia are siblings.
      • Before attempting to execute one of his Imperial Officers, Vader says, "You have failed me for the last time," a line that he also says in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. It is possible this Imperial Officer, is Admiral Ozzel, who is yet to be realized in LEGO form, for he has the same features as Ozzel.
      • In the scene where Bib Fortuna is selling devices resembling iPhones, he speaks in Twi'lek. While the captions say that his words translated into "Do you want a cell phone?", this is a joke, as he says the exact same words in Return of the Jedi when greeting C-3PO and R2-D2, a case in which he was obviously not mentioning cell phones.
      • R2 ejects Luke's lightsaber into the air for him to catch and use, a tactic they also used in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
      • Maul separates into two halves frequently, referencing his defeat in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
      • When Han shoots a Stormtrooper attempting to arrest him, C-3PO criticizes him for shooting first, sparking a debate between them. This is a reference to a change made in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope to have Greedo shoot first as opposed to Han, as George Lucas did not want to send the wrong message to viewers. This change has upset many fans, some of them claiming that Han shooting Greedo first was morally justified as it was obvious that Greedo would have killed him if he had not acted. Han uses an argument similar to this in his fight with C-3PO.
      • When Vader and Luke duel, Luke shouts "You killed my father", prompting Vader to attempt to reveal the fact that he is Luke's father, mirroring the famous scene from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. However, he is interrupted numerous times, and is thus not able to reveal this information.
      • The scene where the Jawas capture Darth Vader closely mirrors the scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope where they capture R2. When the Jawas blast Darth Vader, he makes the sounds that R2-D2 made when the same thing happened to him in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, then falls forwards onto his face, groaning, just as R2 did.
      • When Vader lands in Tatooine, he shouts "I've got sand. up my NOOOOOSE!!", a clear reference to his first scene, in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, when he shouts "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. " after being told of Padme Amidala's (his love, and former wife) death.
      • A scene featuring TIE Fighters shooting at the Millennium Falcon also closely mirrors a similar scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
      • When Luke accidentally loses his hand after a Tie Fighter shot at his X-Wing cockpit, it resembles Darth Vader cutting off his hand in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
      • Before the rebels destroy the Star Destroyer, Han says, "You're all clear, kid, now let's blow this thing and go home! Again," referencing his famous line near the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
      • The "Employee of the Month" awards ceremony at the end of the special is similar to the medal ceremony at the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
      • Luke's X-Wing Starfighter crashes into the Super Star Destroyer the same way Arvel Crynyd's A-Wing starfighter did.
      • Also, after Luke's X-wing crashes, Admiral Piett says that he is honored by Luke (in a Darth vader costume)'s presence, like Moff Tiaan Jerjerod said in Return of the Jedi.
      • When Darth Maul appears, he is singing the word "awesome" to the tune of Duel of the Fates (the song from the duel scene in The Phantom Menace).
      • Although Darth Maul appears in the special, he was later revealed to have been killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi two years before A New Hope in Star Wars: Rebels.
