Meet the New 'Star Wars' Family in 'Lego Freemaker Adventures' Trailer

17 February 2016 5:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

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.

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. »
