TWG sends its congratulations to the crew of the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures animated series! The much-beloved LEGO show about three siblings on a quest to stop the Emperor from getting the legendary Kyber Saber received four Daytime Emmy nominations.
The series debuted last summer on Disney XD and garnered positive reviews from across the fan community mainly because it steered away from the parody seen in the LEGO Star Wars shows from the past and focused on expanding the Star Wars galaxy with a more engaging story, lovable characters, and genuine humor.
