A brand new family is coming to the STAR WARS universe with the new animated series premiering on Disney XD. LEGO STAR WARS: THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES will premiere MONDAY, JUNE 20 (10:00 a.m. EDT), on Disney XD.
Set between the events of “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” the series follows the Freemakers, a family of sibling scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space. The series will also feature familiar characters and locations from the filmed STAR WARS saga.
Rowan, the spunky Force-sensitive 12-year-old with a thirst for adventure, is voiced by newcomer Nicolas Cantu. His quick-witted older sister, Kordi, voiced by Vanessa Lengies, manages the family business and is the glue that holds the family together. Ace pilot and charming rogue Zander, voiced by Eugene Byrd, is the oldest brother and the family’s self-proclaimed starship connoisseur. 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.
