One year, during a conversation at dinner after ComicCon, the series came to be. Executive Producer Bill Motz, said, “We’re waiting to sit down at the table and Bob says, I know what the show is. And I was like, what show? The show we just started.” The two discussed their love for all thing Star Wars and all things LEGO. “For me I was like I loved the kits, but I loved the bucket,” said Motz. “You know what I mean? Pouring out the blocks and creating your own thing. No offense to people who glue their bricks but that to me is that’s not the point. For me it was like playing with my family, right? This is like, it was something that my mom and dad did with me. Building these bricks is something I had done with my kids. So for me it was we invented this out of that play together.”
“There’s been so many battles in Star Wars, there’s so much busted junk, right? I mean it fits so the idea that you’re going to take like this you know piece here and slap it together and make a new thing. It’s something we see in our own home. My sons, I see them play with the tie fighter and eventually you know the tie fighter gets smashed sitting there and thank God my sons are creative enough to go, I’m going to have to re-piece it back together with the instructions kit. I lost that booklet ages ago! But the beauty of LEGO is that’s not a ruined toy at that point it’s just the beginning now. He takes those tie fighter wings and slaps it on his creation and he’s got a brand-new toy. He’s thrilled and I’m thrilled. That’s the beauty of LEGO and it seems to fit perfectly with Star Wars for that inspiration.”
From there, the idea for a series went from idea to reality. The duo now spends their days creating the fun and comical scripts for the adventures. The two even received advance peeks at scripts for the Stars Wars films, just so they could have their story lines align with the films. But like true fans, they asked for redacted copies and to only see what is necessary so that they could still enjoy the films in theaters. That’s dedication.
