A second season of galactic adventure is coming this summer as LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures returns to Disney XD.
“The series creators expertly deliver an equal amount of comedy and signature Star Wars adventure into their storytelling,” said Marc Buhaj, SVP, Programming and General Manager for Disney XD. “We’re looking forward to bringing our viewers a brand new season of galactic adventures with the Freemaker family throughout summer.”
The first season concluded with the Freemaker family finding a new home with the Rebel fleet. Now, they came face to face with Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords, and the Emperor’s new toy: a terrifying hunter droid named M-OC who constanty modifies himself to pursue any quarry. With new threats abounding, Rowan’s powers grow until he has a vision of an invulnerable ship that can save the Rebellion and stop the Empire — the Arrowhead. The catch? Young Rowan’s the only one who can build it.
Ahead of the debut, five new shorts that fill in the gaps between seasons 1 and 2 will air on Disney XD on May 4 as part of the “May the 4th Be with You” fan festivities. A peak at the new Freemaker Adventures will also be revealed at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this month.
The season 2 voice cast includes Nicolas Cantu as Rowan, Vanessa Lengies (Kordi), Eugene Byrd (Zander), Matthew Wood (RO-GR), Trevor Devall (Emperor), Dana Snyder (Graballa), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Yvette Nicole Brown (Lt. Valeria), Corey Burton (Quarrie), James Urbaniak (M-OC) and Matt Sloan (Darth Vader).
LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is produced by Wil Film, the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm and developed for TV by Bill Motz and Bob Roth (Penguins of Madagascar), who serve as executive producers with Torsten Jacobson (LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales) and Jill Wilfert (The LEGO Movie), alongside producers Carrie Beck (Star Wars Rebels), Jason Cosler (LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Avengers Reassembled!), Jake Blais and John McCormack.
Season 1 was one of Disney XD’s top-rated animated series in 2016, reaching over 55 million Total Viewers across the US to-date (including 21M kids 2-14 and 11M boys 2-14), plus 6 million engagements across digital and social.
