Yesterday, Disney XD announced it was bring Star Wars to the small screen.
“Big deal,” you say? What if I told you it was LEGO Star Wars?
“Again, big deal Stephen. LEGO Star Wars movies have been all over the network over the year.”
Yes, that’s true, Dear Reader, but this will be a weekly series.
Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is set between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and focuses on the Freemakers, a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the debris they scour after space battles.
Makes perfect sense for a LEGO show, as the click-building sequences happen a lot in shows like Ninjago.
“With ‘The Freemaker Adventures’ we are thrilled to bring all new stories to life that could only be realized in the ‘Lego Star Wars’ universe,” said Carrie Beck, vice president, animation development at Lucasfilm. “We are embarking on an unprecedented collaboration that will allow us to extend the narrative experience of the ‘Star Wars’ saga with the same playful spirit that’s always made ‘Lego Star Wars’ so much fun to watch. We are so thankful to have such great partners in the Lego Group, Disney XD and series developers Bill Motz and Bob Roth.”
The Freemaker Adventures will debut this Summer on Disney XD.
