Star Wars and Lego fans will be happy to hear there will be an all new Lego Star Wars television show coming to Disney XD, and we got to see the first episode so we can tell you all about what to expect! “Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures”, follows the adventures of the Freemaker family, three siblings who are scavengers that sell and build starships throughout the Galaxy.
The show, although following its own new story-line separate from the Star Wars cannon, takes place between the events of “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”. This felt like a great choice of time-frame to place it in the cannon, not only because the original trilogy is such a classic that all Star Wars fans know and love, but also because the show is able to have characters such as Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.
As with past Lego Star Wars shows, there is a lot of humor. But what makes “The Freemaker Adventures” particularly unique is that this humor seems to not have the same parody humor as other Lego Star Wars, but rather reflect the style of humor we see in the actual “Star Wars” films. It felt like this show had a perfect balance of traditional Star Wars humor along with high stakes, making it a show appealing not only to the typical child audience of Disney XD, but something that an adult Star Wars fan would be sure to want to tune into, and even get hooked on.
The level of story telling within just 30 minutes of show is pretty impressive, and a true reflection of the immense talent of the crew at Wil Film, Lego Group, and Lucasfilm Animation who are they production companies behind the show.
It is definitely also a big treat for the hardcore Star Wars fans, since there are many subtle visuals to look out for, such as a Lego Max Rebo in the background of a scene, and a carton of milk with a Bantha on it–I’m sure the amount of references one can find of the Star Wars universe are nearly endless!
Whether you’re wanting to watch as a family, or on your own, this show caters to a wide range of audiences, along with any level of Star Wars fan. You can catch the premiere of the first four episodes on June 20th, beginning at 10 am, with an additional new episode airing Monday’s each week after.
