Animated kids series Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures will debut this summer on Disney XD, marking the first time a series from the Lego Star Wars franchise will be available on the boy-skewing channel.
Playing on the themes of the popular Lego Star Wars toy line, the adventure comedy series centers around the Freemakers characters, a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn across the galaxy. Their youngest child uncovers an ancient artifact — the Kyber Saber — and discovers his own natural connection with the Force. It also features a number of characters from the long-running Star Wars franchise.
The series is a co-production of Wil Film, the Lego Group and Lucasfilm, and it is being developed for television by Bill Motz and Bob Roth, executive produced by Mortz, Roth, Tornsten Jacobson and Jill Wilfert (executive producer of The Lego Movie) and produced by Carrie Beck, Jason Cosler, Jake Blais and John McCormack.
No details have been announced about the specific premiere date and the number of episodes attached to the series.
Just last month, Cartoon Network deepened its ongoing relationship with the Lego brand with the premiere of the all-new series Lego Nexo Knights. The show, also created in collaboration with The Lego Group, debuted on the US net January 22.
