A Fun and Funny Star Wars cartoon
2 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Droids is now one of my favorite cartoons. I am a huge Star Wars fan and I just loved this Cartoon. Droids tells the story of C3PO and R2D2 years before they joined the Rebel Alliance and teamed up with Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. It seems there lives were just as dangerous. They encounter numorus masters and encounter Space pirates Bounty hunters The Empire and a close Encounter with Boba Fett. This Cartoon is very funny and much better than the Ewoks T.V. seires.
