Starwars.com has just announced Lego’s latest Star Wars animated series The Freemaker Adventures!
“The Freemaker Adventures, is an all-new animated television series scheduled to debut this summer on Disney XD in the US. The fun-filled adventure comedy series, set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, will introduce all-new heroes and villains in exciting adventures with many familiar Star Wars characters.
Told in the whimsically-charged style that audiences have come to expect from LEGO Star Wars entertainment, the series stars the Freemakers, a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy. When their youngest discovers a natural connection with the Force through an ancient artifact — the Kyber Saber — his world is turned upside down, and he and his family are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers explore new worlds, meet new and familiar characters, and learn the true value of what it means to be a family.
Personally, I have always loved Lego’s tongue-in-cheek treatment of the Star Wars universe. I am an absolute sucker for Darth Vader’s goofy and awkward portrayal. I will be excited to see how Lego blends new and established characters in this time frame between Empire and Jedi.
