It appears as if Roger the Battle Droid is going to be the main star of the new LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars series of shorts, because he not only kicked off the series, but he’s also the star of the second released short. Unlike the first short though, which did provide a bit of new Star Wars lore by showing Roger’s origins, this second one doesn’t really add much to the overall Star Wars franchise.
This episode, which is titled, “It Gets Ugly”, is just a one-off type of short. It features a forgettable mishap by Roger and his first master Pace, who end up on a planet full of Rancors. The two get chased by them, but thanks to Pace’s engineering skills, they’re able to escape.
It really is a weak episode in terms of the content, and it’s best described as a 3-minute Star Wars break from your day. Hopefully the third short will be better.
