The official full trailer for the newest Star Wars animated adventure from Disney XD — LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures — has been released…
LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and is meant to be an action comedy series that follows the Freemakers, a family of sibling scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space.The series will feature familiar Star Wars heroes and villains from across the saga.
With Star Wars Rebels in the middle of its offseason, and with Rogue One just six months away, LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures could be the perfect fun way to get that Star Wars fix.
As you can see, there are loads of familiar Star Wars characters in the trailer: Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader prominent among them.
According to ComingSoon.net, during the series’ premiere week, Disney XD will debut a new episode each day: Starting with Monday, June 20 and running all the way through to Thursday, June 23.
The synopsis for the show is as follows:
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 (Diggle’s brother on 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.
Obviously, LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures will be targeted toward a younger audience, but that doesn’t mean we adults can’t sit back and enjoy the fun…I know I will. Tune into Disney XD on June 20, to watch the premiere.
