One of the highlights of my summer was watching the Disney XD animated series LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. Some people were quick to dismiss it, but being that I’m a kid at heart, I decided to give it a chance, and I definitely don’t regret it. Brought to you by executive producers Bill Motz and Bob Roth and a talented team of writers and producers, The Freemaker Adventures took fans on an exciting journey across the galaxy, where the focus was on a group of siblings struggling to save the galaxy.
Taking place between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, these new adventures follow a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from battle debris strewn throughout the galaxy. When their youngest discovers a natural connection with the Force through an ancient artifact—the Kyber Saber—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 discover the strength of family.
In addition to the fun and the laughs, there’s also real heart to be found at the core of the series, making it stand out from LEGO Star Wars shows from the past. And now, we can add season one to our Star Wars collections at home!
The DVD and Blu-ray will be arriving on December 6, 2016, and each one comes packed with 6 exclusive magnets! Also, the bonus features include:
- The Freemaker Adventures: Meet the Freemaker Family – Get to know the members of your favorite family of celestial scavengers—and meet the actors who bring them to life—in this fun collection of clips, behind-the-scenes footage and cast interviews!
- Freemaker Salvage and Repair – Visit the shop with the finest salvage in the galaxy as Rowan, Kordi and Zander take you on a tour of the family business.
So if you haven’t given it a chance because you think it’s a silly show and it won’t enhance the Star Wars experience for you, I think you should reconsider and be open to trying out a new story that has everything you love about Star Wars and more!
