A new Lego Star Wars series, The Freemaker Adventures, will premiere June 20th on Disney XD.
Disney and Lucasfilm are teaming up with Lego to bring fans of all ages a new series full of fun and adventure (after all, the word “adventure” is in the show’s title). The Freemaker Adventures follows three siblings, Kordi, Rowan, and Zander as they smuggle and swindle their away across the galaxy. But things are turned upside down when they discover Rowan is Force sensitive.
When this show was first announced a few months ago, I was under the impression the two older siblings, Zander and Kordi, were Rowan’s parents. The fact they’re siblings makes things much more intriguing. We get a lot of parent-child dynamics throughout the rest of the saga, so seeing siblings interact with each other should be fun.

There’s one thing that should be pointed out: up to this point, none of the animated Star Wars shows and shorts Lego has put out have been canon. The Freemaker Adventures, therefore, is not likely to become part of in-universe history, either, especially since the Emperor and Darth Vader are appearing on this show, I doubt the Lucasfilm Story Group would be willing to let the two biggest villains in Star Wars look ridiculous and have it be canon. And they’re going to be ridiculous, because it’s Lego Star Wars and Lego Star Wars lets everyone be silly.
Even though it’s not canon, The Freemaker Adventures looks like a fun, light watch. It would be an effective way to get the kids in your life to watch it, too, if they’re not quite old enough for or interested in the films or the two canon animated series, The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. I certainly intend to give it a go. I enjoyed the clips I saw of Droid Tales, in which C-3PO and R2-D2 tell a slapstick version of the Star Wars film series from their perspective, and I can see The Freemaker Adventures being just as entertaining.
Will you be giving this series a watch? If so, be sure and catch it June 20th on Disney XD.
