Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Announced for Disney XD
As expected, Star Wars
continues its conquest of the entertainment universe. Wil Film, the Lego Group, and Lucasfilm have announced Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures
, an animated adventure comedy series that will feature characters new and old to the Star Wars
universe (as illustrated below).
The cartoon is set between Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
and Episode VI – Return of the Jedi
, and centers on the Freemakers, “a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the…debris of space battles. 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.”
Bob Roth and Bill Motz (Penguins Of Madagascar
) are developing the series, and will serve as executive producers alongside Jill Wilfert (The Lego Movie
) and Torsten Jacobson (Lego Star Wars: Droid Tale
s). Carrie Beck (Star Wars Rebel
s), Jason Cosler (Lego Marvel Super Heroes: Avengers Reassembled!
), Jake Blais and John McCormack are set to produce the project.
The series is slated to air during the summer, joining the previously announced Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens
game, which will release on all platforms on June 28.
