The second season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is coming soon!
On Saturday, June 17, DisneyXD airs a preview: at 10:30 a.m. ET/PT is a half-hour special collecting the five shorts that aired on May 4th, followed by the first episode, “Trouble on Tibalt,” at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT.
The second season premieres on Monday, July 31. Episodes air at 7:00 a.m. ET/PT on Mondays through Thursdays, concluding on August 16.
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.
