Back in February, we told you how a new adventure, LEGO STAR WARS: THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES, was coming to Disney XD! This all-new animated television series is now scheduled to debut this summer in the US on June 20th at 10 AM EST! What is even cooler, is that during the series’ premiere week, Disney XD will debut a new episode each day, beginning June 20 through June 23. The first episode will also be available via Video on Demand (VOD) and the Disney XD app! The fun-filled adventure comedy series will introduce all-new heroes and villains in exciting adventures with many familiar Star Wars characters.
The action comedy series, set between the events of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RETURN OF THE JEDI, follows the Freemakers, a family of sibling scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space.
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 (“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.
The series isn’t all new faces though. Familiar characters from the Star Wars saga are bound to pop up here and there! Despite all their struggles, and throughout all their adventures, the Freemakers learn the true value of what it means to be a family.
