New trailer for Disney Xd’s Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures

Ahead of its premiere later this month, Disney Xd has released a new trailer for the new animated series Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures; check it out below…

Meet the New 'Star Wars' Family in 'Lego Freemaker Adventures' Trailer
Last week, Disney Xd announced a brand new Star Wars animated series entitled Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, which is set to debut this summer on the cable network. The announcement came with our first look at artwork from the series. Now, YouTube user dreamnailz has uncovered the announcement trailer, which has our first look at footage from this show. While no voice cast members have been announced for this Lego Star Wars adventure, this trailer does offer new insight into the plot.

The footage shows that, long ago, a Jedi Master forged the Kyber Saber, a lightsaber made of Kyber Crystals.

Star Wars: New Troopers, New Spaceships

This is a column about speculation, spoilers, rumors, hearsay and analyzing the Star Wars Universe. Spoilers, real or imagined, might be found within.

We’ve transitioned out of the period where Rogue One is shooting and into the period where Star Wars: Episode VIII has begun. And, in a cryptic fiscal statement from Dinsey, Bob Iger says that Star Wars: Episode IX has started production as well.

When talking about Rogue One, Iger said "This is the first of a set of planned stand-alone stories...we're already in preproduction on our next one, for release in May of 2018." Which, of course, is Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. Or whatever You’Re calling it, that’s what I’m calling it. The whole “A Star Wars Story” thing is still very silly. It’s a very silly way to work around taking the episode title out of the saga stories.
