The popular LEGO Star Wars franchise will return to the small screen as Cartoon Network premieres the second installment of their three-part series of CG animated specials, The Yoda Chronicles. The new comedy-actioner special, “Menace of the Sith,” premieres Wednesday, September 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the network.
Set in the prequel era of the smash hit sci-fi film series, Yoda Chronicles follows the small but powerful Jedi Master as he leads a fresh class of Padawans in a desperate fight to stop Darth Sidious and his minions from creating a new super-weapon that could crush the Republic and win the galaxy for the forces of evil. “Menace of the Sith” finds Darth Sidious introducing the new Sith clone JEK 14, an extremely powerful weapon of the dark side. However, JEK 14 has a mind of his own, instigating a battle of wills between Sith and Jedi in an attempt to win him over.
The first special, “The Phantom Clone,” premiered in May as the number 1 telecast of the day with boys 6011 versus all TV, and the no. 1 telecast in its time period with all key boys versus all TV, according to Nielsen Media Research.
