Star Wars and LEGO are once again joining forces in the new animated series LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures coming to Disney XD.
It was announced by StarWars.com that LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures would be making its way to Disney XD in the US this summer. The animated series takes place between The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of The Jedi, and will be introducing a new cast of heroes and villains along-side familiar Star Wars characters.
The Story follows a family of scavengers who make a living from building and selling starships that have been constructed with debris that they have scoured throughout the galaxy. When the youngest of the family discovers a connection to the Force through an ancient artefact called the Kyber Saber, the whole world as he knows it is turned upside down, and he along with his family are thrown into an epic struggle against the powerful Empire, as they have to help restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. While on this journey they find out the true meaning of being a family.
“We are very exited to launch for the first time a TV series with Disney XD” said Jill Wilfred the vice president of licensing and entertainment at the LEGO Group. “The team behind The Freemaker Adventures is extremely talented, and the series is a great testament to our longstanding and successful partnership with Lucasfilm and Disney. The Show masterfully combines the rich heritage of storytelling, great characters, action, and adventure in a galaxy far, far away with creativity, imagination, and humor that only LEGO Star Wars can deliver. We are sure fans young and old are going to love the show.”
“With The Freemaker Adventures we are thrilled to bring all-new stories to life that could only be realized in the LEGO Star Wars universe,” said Carrie Beck the vice president of animation development at Lucasfilm. “We are embarking on an unprecedented collaboration that will allow us to extend the narrative experience of Star Wars saga with the same playful spirit that’s always made LEGO Star Wars so much fun to watch. We are so thankful to have such great partners in the LEGO Group, Disney XD, and series developers Bill Motz and Bob Roth”
This looks like a must watch of anyone who is a fan of the LEGO Star Wars universe, as it seems all the elements that makes the games so great will be incorporated into the series.
