"LEGO STAR WARS: THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES" PREMIERES MONDAY, JUNE 20 ON DISNEY XD

Introducing new heroes and villains to the LEGO Star Wars universe, the animated television series "LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" will premiere MONDAY, JUNE 20 (10:00 a.m. EST) on Disney XD. Set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, the action comedy series follows the Freemakers, a family of sibling scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space. The series will also feature familiar characters and locations from the filmed Star Wars saga.

During the series' premiere week, Disney XD will debut a new episode each day, beginning Monday, June 20 through Thursday, June 23. The first episode will also be available via Video on Demand (VOD) and the Disney XD app for users on tablets, phones, set top boxes and computers on Monday, June 20.

The series stars three Freemaker siblings who scour the galaxy for useful debris that they use to build new vehicles of their own design. 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 humorous and action-packed tale of good versus evil begins when Rowan discovers the Kyber Saber, an ancient artifact with a powerful connection to the Force. Their world is turned upside down as they are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers learn the true value of what it means to be a family.

"LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" is a production of Wil Film, the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm and is the first television series created in partnership with the LEGO Group, Disney and Lucasfilm. Developed for television by executive producers Bill Motz and Bob Roth ("Penguins of Madagascar"), Torsten Jacobson ("LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales") and Jill Wilfert ("The LEGOTM Movie") also serve as executive producers alongside producers Carrie Beck ("Star Wars Rebels"), Jason Cosler ("LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Avengers Reassembled!"), Jake Blais and John McCormack."

Star Wars coverage will continue tomorrow as we publish our review of 75098 Assault on Hoth.

I Have a feeling that this show would be a big Forceful hit!

I am more excited for Kryptonite Interception and this serie than I am for the 'Insult on Hoth' set.

If we are going to continuously make fun of the horrible Hoth set can we be better with the jokes / puns?

I love the two sets that are coming out from this movie / series. So of the best ship design in years. Hi design that was sadly lacking in Episode 7.

So unneeded. Would have gladly wanted more Episode VII sets than this and its sets. I really hope this series is a one [season] and done quite honestly.

Both of the sets from this look great (and good value for money).

The minifigs are great but the Freemaker's spaceship is too basic and not appealing to me.

I wonder if Disney (or fans) will consider this story canon. According to wikipedia: " It has been stated that from April 2014 onward, all released material should be considered canon unless stated otherwise."

I'm sure this will appeal greatly to other people, But to me this seems just like Rebels; a half hour toy advertisement.

No way will this be canon. If you watched the first trailer there was a scene where Sidious was looking at a hologram of the kyber-saber and shouted "gimme, gimme!!!". I can't see them doing that in something that would be considered canon.

Think that there will be a "The Freemaker Adventures" DLC in LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
