The planet Iego in Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Mystery of a Thousand Moons (2009) is a reference to Lego and a nod to the constructions toys. In 1999, The Lego Company acquired the rights and released Lego play-sets of the Star Wars saga. Incidentally, the character of Jaybo Hood (a mechanic) whom lives on Iego, reprogrammed Battle Droids to serve him. See more »

I actually stumbled on this series by accident - and what a nice surprise! While I did not see the associated animated film (because of the very bad reviews), this show seems to have some very good things going for it.
For a TV series, the visuals and sounds are really great. The colors, scenery and style of "3D" animation are really appealing. And the sounds (including character voices) are pretty well done too.
Characters: It took me three episodes to get comfortable with the new look of the main characters. It was a bit awkward watching them at first, but now it's OK. One slight issue I still have is that they sometimes remind me of characters from a kid's show than a general audience show.
But that's OK - it's really great to have 30 minutes of good quality Star Wars story-telling each week. The force is with this show!
