Smacked right between events from The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, follow the Freemakers in the new LEGO Star Wars epic, The Freemaker Adventures!
The animated series debuts June 20th on Disney XD and features a family of sibling scavengers named the Freemakers who run a salvage-repair shop in space. Along with introductions to new heroes and villains, you’ll also see familiar characters and locales from the original Star Wars saga!
The humorous and action-packed tale of good versus evil begins when the youngest sibling 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.
Meet The Freemaker Family
Rowan, voiced by newcomer Nicholas Cantu, is the 12-year old Force-sensitive younger brother of both Kordi and Zander. He’s precocious and generally getting them in sticky situations because of his thirst for adventure!
Voiced by Vanessa Lengies of GLEE fame, Kordi is the self-proclaimed ‘brains of the operation,’ using her quick wit to get them out of tough spots while managing the family business.
The charming Zander, voiced by Eugene Byrd (Arrow, Bones) is an ace pilot and starship “connoisseur,” jumping up at any occasion to see new parts and mechanics!
Lucasfilm‘s Matthew Wood voices R0-GR, also known as Roger, a refurbished battle droid from the Clone Wars adopted by the Freemaker family.
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.
