LEGO Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles The Rancor Pit Episode 1

Apparently, The Yoda Chronicles isn’t a continuing storyline but a series of short stories split into a few episodes. The Umbara story seemingly has finished up last week, and this week we start the Rancor Pit story.

In the beginning, you can see Luke’s X-wing in front of Jabba’s Palace. Inside, Luke is trying to rescue Han Solo, who is still in carbonite, from Jabba the Hutt. Jabba springs the trap and Luke as well as the Gamorrean guard fall into the Rancor pit. They hear a loud roar coming from the direction of the gate and see Malakili coming out with a drumstick. He lures the Rancor to Luke and the Gamorrean. Luke force builds a trap door to hide from the Rancor. The beast grabs the Gamorrean and is about it eat him. C-3P0 panics and accidentally knocks slave Princess Leia into the pit too but she is still hanging on the chain. The Rancor roars at her and the story will continue next week.

One thing I noticed is the design of the Slave Leia minifigure. As you can see below, she has an updated bikini that is colored green. Her skirt also seem to have a bit more detail as well. The hair piece also is different from the Leia in the 2006 version of Jabba’s Sail Barge (6210). You can see the previous version of Leia here. Could the Leia we saw in the video be the redesigned version in the new Jabba’s Sail Barge (75020)?

Also, although this video is from The Yoda Chronicles, Yoda does not appear in the episode.

Redesigned Slave Leia?
