Watch Now: ‘Robot Chicken’ Style ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Animated Short
  |  @   |  

We all know that a significant part of Star Wars is selling stuff. As the wise, the all-powerful, the magnificent Yogurt once said, “Merchandising! Merchandising!”

For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, they’ve found a fun way to advertise some of the upcoming merchandise being released. A new fan-made Robot Chicken-style animated short has been released for the movie, in which the building instructions for the LEGO Death Star are up for grabs. It features tiny LEGO figures, regular-sized action figures, and even some Funko Pop! vinyl figures. It’s just the first in a series of shorts to come, and also brings with it the announcement of a contest where fans will make their own video shorts in hopes of winning some cool prizes.

You can find details on the contest and the first Rogue One stop-motion short below.

Here’s all the details on the contest:
