Debuting this summer on Disney XD, the all-new TV show “Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures” will introduce new characters as well as some familiar faces in a galaxy far, far away.
The story revolves around the Freemakers, “a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy.” What sets them off on their new adventures — and attracting the attention of the Empire — is the discovery that their youngest child has an affinity to the Force when he discovers an ancient artifact called the Kyber Saber. The series is set in the time between “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”.
“We are very excited to launch for the first time a TV series with Disney XD,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing & entertainment at the LEGO Group. “The creative 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 the creativity, imagination and humor that only LEGO Star Wars can deliver. We are sure fans young and old are going to love the show.”
Throughout the new show the Freemakers will explore the galaxy and meet a mix of new and old characters.
“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, vice president, animation development at Lucasfilm. “We are embarking on an unprecedented collaboration that will allow us to extend the narrative experience of the 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.”
