Star Wars: Blips is an animated series of shorts produced by Lucasfilm Animation and Lucasfilm's merchandise department. Each episode of the show features a brief, comedic scenario involving popular Star Wars characters in various situations and settings. The series premiered on the official Star Wars YouTube channel in 2017, coinciding with the release of the film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The show's episodes are under a minute in length and are released sporadically, with no set schedule or release frequency.

Despite its brevity, Star Wars: Blips manages to capture the spirit of the Star Wars universe and deliver laugh-out-loud moments to fans of all ages. The show's animation style heavily resembles that of Star Wars Rebels, but with more simplified character designs and exaggerated expressions.

One of the most striking elements of the show is its use of humor. While Star Wars is typically known for its dramatic storytelling and epic battles, Star Wars: Blips leans heavily into the franchise's comedic potential. Many of the show's scenarios revolve around familiar characters getting into silly situations or engaging in witty banter.

For example, one episode titled "Hyperspace Hijinks" features Chewbacca attempting to navigate the Millennium Falcon through a treacherous asteroid field, but getting distracted by his love of Porgs. Another episode, called "Trash Compactor Rescue," imagines what would happen if Han Solo and Luke Skywalker tried to rescue Princess Leia from the Death Star's garbage chute, but ended up getting stuck themselves.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of Star Wars: Blips is its attention to detail and deep references to Star Wars canon. Despite its comedic tone, the series is clearly created by fans who have a thorough understanding of Star Wars lore and history. Each episode includes nods to various films, books, and comics within the franchise, ensuring that even hardcore fans will be entertained.

One episode, titled "Wampa Woes," imagines what would happen if a group of Wampas decided to throw a party in the Echo Base on Hoth. The short features cameos from multiple characters from The Empire Strikes Back, including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia.

Another episode, "Ewok Escape," sees R2-D2 and C-3PO stranded in the middle of an Ewok village, trying to find a way back to the Rebel base. The short includes references to both Return of the Jedi and the animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars.

Overall, Star Wars: Blips is a delightful addition to the Star Wars franchise. While its episodes are short, they are packed with humor, heart, and attention to detail that will please fans of all ages. Whether you're a diehard Star Wars fan or a casual viewer, this series is sure to bring a smile to your face.
