LEGO STAR WARS: THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES



Obi-Wan was right when he said that "The Force will be with you always". With the upcoming release of a new movie this winter and the recent finale of the Star Wars: Rebels series, it seems like Star Wars will be with us for a long time. LEGO is definitely helping in keeping the spirit of Star Wars alive and their next big adventure is coming to DISNEY XD on June 20th. 

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, the action comedy series follows the Freemakers, a family of siblings scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space. The series will also feature familiar characters and locations from the filmed Star Wars Saga. 


During the series' premiere week, Disney XD will debut a new episode each day, beginning Monday, June 20 through Thursday, June 23. The first episode will also be available via Video on Demand (VOD) and the Disney XD app for users on tablets, phones, set top boxes and computers on Monday, June 20.

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. Lucasfilm's Matthew Wood voices R0-GR, also known as Roger, a refurbished battle droid from the Clone Wars adopted by the Freemaker family.






The humorous and action-packed tale of good versus evil begins when Rowan discovers the Kyber Saber, an ancient artifact with a powerful connection to the Force. Their world is turned upside down as they are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers learn the true value of what it means to be a family. 

Having a new LEGO STAR WARS series also means that there will be new LEGO sets too. There will be two new construction sets based on the Freemakers and their adventures. The sets will be on shelves in June, timed with the release of the television series. 

Also, you can explore the new LEGO Star Wars Force Builder app which is available now. The app allows anyone to create their own "Ugly". Allowing iPhone and Android users the ability to prototype unique builds, offering thousands of configurations to inform and inspire your own real-life LEGO builds.

Yes, my friends Star Wars will be with us for a long time so let's enjoy the new series and see what incredible new vehicles and sets we can create with LEGO.
