The highly-anticipated Lego "Star Wars" series â€” "The Freemaker Adventures" â€” is all set to premiere in June on Disney XD.
The action-comedy series, with "all-new heroes and villains," is set between the events of "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi," and follows a family of sibling scavengers who "operate a salvage and repair shop in space." Familiar characters in the Star Wars universe will also appear on the show, reports IGN.
According to the official synopsis, the three Freemaker siblings â€” Rowan, the spunky Force-sensitive pre-teen; Kordi, his quick-witted older sister; and Zander, the oldest brother and ace pilot â€” are thrown into an "epic struggle against the Empire" when Rowan discovers an artefact with a "powerful connection to the Force."
Newcomer Nicolas Cantu plays Rowan, with Vanessa Lengies ("Glee") as Kordi, and Eugene Byrd ("Arrow") as Zander. Lucasfilm sound editor Matthew Wood, who previously voiced General Grievous in both "Revenge of the Sith" and "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," voices the family's refurbished battle drone, R0-GR.
The series will premiere on June 20 and Disney XD will release a new episode each day till June 23. The first episode of "Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" will become available for Video on Demand and on the Disney XD app on June 20 as well.
