You might remember that last year Disney XD released a LEGO animated television series titled LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. It was a really fun and engaging story, set between Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The show follows the adventures of a scavenger family, the Freemakers, as they travel throughout the galaxy. The first season consisted of thirteen episodes and aired last summer, later becoming available on DVD. Recently Disney XD announced that it is renewing the series for a second season that will start airing this summer. Story and trailer below. 🙂
In the first season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, we met the Freemaker siblings; young boy Rowan, his sister Kordi, and their brother Zander. They are scavengers, who build and sell starships from battle debris strewn throughout the galaxy. When Rowan 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. The Freemakers explore new worlds, meet new and familiar characters and learn the meaning of family. You can get all thirteen action-packed episodes of the first season (along with extra collections of clips, behind-the-scenes footage and cast interviews) on DVD/Blu-ray on Amazon: THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES ON AMAZON
The second season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures continues the story where the first season left off. At the end of the first season, the Freemaker family found a new home with the rebel fleet. Their new circumstances bring them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords, and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC, a terrifying hunter droid who continually modifies himself to fit any occasion. In response to these threats, Rowan’s powers grow and strengthen until he has a vision of a sleek, invulnerable ship that can save the Rebellion and stop the Empire in its tracks – the Arrowhead. The catch is, the Arrowhead is a ship only Rowan can build. Once again, it’s up to the youngest Freemaker to save the galaxy. Watch the trailer below.
The story looks just as good as the first season, so we can look forward to some fun this summer! And what would a great LEGO Star Wars story be without related sets? For the first season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures we got the #75145 LEGO Star Wars Eclipse Fighter, and the #75147 LEGO Star Wars StarScavenger – both medium-size sets that gave us the main characters and a couple of small ships. For the second season we are getting two more sets, the #75185 LEGO Star Wars Tracker I, and the #75186 LEGO Star Wars Arrowhead. Both sets are larger and more substantial than last year’s offerings, and include new characters. I especially like the Arrowhead; an elegant ship, with likely fun play-features.
If you would like to catch up on the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures story before the new season gets released, I highly recommend getting the DVD/Blu-ray version. They are both on sale on Amazon:
