It's been a bit of an exciting week for Star Wars fans! There's a new animated series in the works and the debut of a new animated miniseries coming up, which should help ease the sting of losing The Clone Wars.

Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles premieres this Wednesday and is the first in a three part series. You can read up on all the details at TV Guide and check out the video trailer below. I'm totally on board for this- it looks to carry the same dry humor as the awesome cut scenes from the Lego Star Wars video games and should be quite entertaining.

The new animated series, Rebellion, was announced this week, with Dave Filoni and an assortment of other talent from The Clone Wars will be on board for production. The series will be set between Episodes III and IV (The Clone Wars was set between Episodes II and III). Big Shiny Robot has more details along with the full press release, and you can watch a short video clip below.

And now for the usual geeky picks! Today's roundup is so full of cakes, cookies, and other assorted sweets that you very well might need to brush your teeth after reading.
