Original Post: Disney and Lucasfilm announced today that Disney XD’s hit show LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is returning this summer for Season 2.
Season 1 of Freemakers saw the journey of Rowan, Kordi and Zander from unassuming scavengers and ship mechanics to full-fledged members of the Rebellion. According to Disney, here is what we can expect in Season 2:
At the end of the first season, the Freemaker family found a new home with the rebel fleet. Their new circumstances bring them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords, and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC, a terrifying hunter droid who continually modifies himself to fit any occasion. In response to these threats, Rowan’s powers grow and strengthen until he has a vision of a sleek, invulnerable ship that can save the Rebellion and stop the Empire in its tracks – the Arrowhead. The catch is, the Arrowhead is a ship only Rowan can build. Once again, it’s up to the youngest Freemaker to save the galaxy.
