Disney XD revealed last February that it will be launching another welcomed addition in the Star Wars franchise following in the footsteps of the recently concluded Star Wars Rebels. Told in a wacky, healthy humor typical of LEGO movies, the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is the newest animated series to jump into Disney XD hyperspace. The new series will premiere Monday, June 20 (10 a.m. EST) and a new episode will debut every day that week, until Thursday, June 23. The Freemakers will debut after the insanely funny Disney XD shorts, LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises. Watch this.
Set between the events of Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi from the original Star Wars trilogy, it follows the Freemakers, a family of sibling scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space. As described in the above video,
“The series stars three Freemaker siblings who scour the galaxy for useful debris that they use to build new vehicles of their own design. Rowan, the spunky Force-sensitive 12-year-old with a thirst for adventure, is voiced by newcomer Nicolas Cantu. His quick-witted older sister, Kordi, voiced by Vanessa Lengies (Glee), manages the family business and is the glue that holds the family together. Ace pilot and charming rogue, Zander, voiced by Eugene Byrd (Arrow), is the oldest brother and the family’s self-proclaimed starship connoisseur.”
If you have already played with any LEGO Star Wars themed sets, or have tried coursing through space amidst enemy TIE Fighters in one of the LEGO Star Wars video games, and is constantly on the lookout for the latest episode of LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises, the then you will definitely have a kick from the fun, irreverent spirit that goes along with the Freemakers. So mark your calendars on June 20 as we celebrate fun and family with LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures.
