A second season of the animated comedy adventure series LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is set to return this summer on Disney XD. Recently nominated for four Daytime Emmy Awards, the fun Force-filled series will continue the story of the Freemakers as they join the Rebellion in their fight against the Empire.
“The series creators expertly deliver an equal amount of comedy and signature Star Wars adventure into their storytelling,” said Marc Buhaj, senior vice president for programming and general manager at Disney XD, in a statement. “We’re looking forward to bringing our viewers a brand new season of galactic adventures with the Freemaker family throughout summer.”
Here’s an update on the series:
At the end of the first season, the Freemaker family found a new home with the Rebel fleet. Their new circumstances bring them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords, and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC, a terrifying hunter droid who continually modifies himself to fit any occasion. In response to these threats, Rowan’s powers grow and strengthen until he has a vision of a sleek, invulnerable ship that can save the Rebellion and stop the Empire in its tracks – the Arrowhead. The catch is, the Arrowhead is a ship only Rowan can build. Once again, it’s up to the youngest Freemaker to save the galaxy.
To cover the gap between seasons, five new Freemaker shorts will air on Disney XD on May the Fourth. More information will be revealed at Star Wars Celebration, April 13-16 in Orlando.
Season two’s voice cast includes Nicolas Cantu (Rowan), Vanessa Lengies (Kordi), Eugene Byrd (Zander), Matthew Wood (RO-GR), Trevor Devall (Emperor), Dana Snyder (Graballa), Vanessa Marshall (Hera of Star Wars Rebels), Yvette Nicole Brown (Lt. Valeria), Corey Burton (Quarrie), James Urbaniak (M-OC) and Matt Sloan (Darth Vader).
