More Fun with the Freemakers.
Hera Syndulla and Mon Mothma are among the characters who will appear in the second season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. The animated series returns to Disney XD in the summer, and will also feature LEGO versions of Crix Madine from Return of the Jedi and Quarrie the Mon Calamari engineer from Star Wars Rebels. Ahead of the new season, a preview reel was shown at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this past April, while five new shorts debuted on Star Wars Day—Wednesday, May 4—on Disney XD.
Set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, the animated action-comedy is set in the LEGO Star Wars universe and follows the adventures of the Freemaker family: Rowan, Kordi, Zander, and their droid R0-GR.
The fi rst season saw Rowan, the youngest Freemaker, exploring his Force-sensitivity as his family got caught up in a quest for kyber crystals. By the end of the season, the Freemakers had gone from living a quiet life as salvage hunters to being part of the rebel fl eet in their ship the StarScavenger.
In Season Two, they will come face to face with the Emperor’s latest plaything, hunter droid M-OC (a play on the LEGO fan abbreviation for “My Own Creation”), and build a brand new ship for the Rebellion: the mighty Arrowhead, which Rowan sees in a Force vision.
LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is made by Disney and Lucasfi lm and stars Nicolas Cantu as Rowan, Vanessa Lengies as Kordi, Eugene Byrd as Zander, and Matthew Wood as R0-GR. M-OC will be voiced by James Urbaniak, and Vanessa Marshall and Corey Burton will guest star as the voices of their Rebels characters, Hera and Quarrie.
In March, Season One was nominated for four Daytime Emmy Awards.
