LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures

The Official Star Wars Site has announced that LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, an all-new animated television series is coming to Disney XD this Summer in the United States! The fun-filled adventure comedy series, set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, will introduce all-new heroes and villains in exciting adventures with many familiar Star Wars characters.

Told in the whimsically-charged style that audiences have come to expect from LEGO Star Wars entertainment, the series stars the Freemakers, a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy. When their youngest discovers a natural connection with the Force through an ancient artifact — the Kyber Saber — his world is turned upside down, and he and his family are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers explore new worlds, meet new and familiar characters, and learn the true value of what it means to be a family.

Daily Video Clip #1

Today's first new video is Rebels Recon #2.14: Inside "The Call." In this installment of Rebels Recon, StarWars.com goes inside the Star Wars Rebels episode “The Call” with creator interviews and more.

“This episode was really about showing how Ezra is continuing to broaden his abilities with the Force and how he can commune with other living creatures,” says co-executive produce Henry Gilroy. In addition, it pulls back the curtain on some Star Wars lore: the origin of the hyperdrive. 

“I began to think that what if the first hyperspace travel wasn’t technological,” executive producer Dave Filoni says, “but that it was nature and that there were creatures that people could witness, that could jump to hyperspace.” Those creatures are the whale-like purrgil, which Ezra connects with through the Force throughout “The Call.” This episode also explores the Mining Guild, first mentioned in The Empire Strikes Back.

Finally, Lucasfilm’s Andi Gutierrez tracks down Pablo Hidalgo of the Story Group for two questions: one regarding time dilation, and the other on the difference between wild space and the Unknown Regions… Enjoy!

Status Of Future Star Wars Films

Entertainment Weekly has an article about Disney's CEO Bob Iger reporting out on the status of the future Star Wars films. “There is no better way to propel this franchise into the future than producing quality products,” he said. “Filming of Star Wars: Episode VIII, the next chapter of the legendary saga, has just commenced and it will be in theaters December 2017. And production of Episode IX, a 2019 release, has also begun.”

“Filming of Rogue One is virtually completed and we absolutely love what we’ve seen so far,” he said, of the heist story about Rebel plans to steal the blueprints for the original Death Star. (The film, directed by Godzilla’s Gareth Edwards, will be released December 16, 2016.) “This is the first of a set of planned stand-alone stories and we’re already in preproduction on our next one, for release in May of 2018.” The film Bob Iger is referring to is the “young Han Solo” movie. Be sure to read the entire article.

The Force Awakens Crosses $2 Billion Worldwide

Entertainment Weekly has an article about Disney reporting that as of Saturday, The Force Awakens has officially made more than $2 billion worldwide, making it only the third film in history to hit that number. The other movies to have made more than $2 billion are Titanic ($2.19 billion) and Avatar ($2.79 billion), unadjusted for inflation.

On Friday, Disney announced The Force Awakens had made $900 million domestically, becoming the only film in history to hit that number.

“This is a historic moment for Star Wars, for Lucasfilm, and for Disney, and all of us here are extremely gratified to be a part of this journey with fans around the world who have made Star Wars: The Force Awakens such an extraordinary success,” Disney chairman Alan Horn said in a statement. “The film’s achievements are truly astounding, and it’s our great honor to relaunch this cinematic galaxy not only for all the devoted decades-long fans but for a new generation who will keep the Star Wars legacy alive for many years to come.”

The Force Awakens’ new global total is one more accomplishment it can add to its long list of box office achievements. Since opening in mid-December, The Force Awakens has set multiple records, including the biggest domestic opening day of all time ($119.1 million), the biggest domestic ($247.9 million) and global ($528.9 million) opening weekend ever, and the fastest film to $1 billion (12 days of global release).

The next adventure in a galaxy far, far away will hit theaters later this year, as Rogue One is released on December 16, 2016. Episode VIII will premiere on December 15, 2017.

Daily Video Clip

Today's new video is Rebels Recon #2.13: Inside "Legends of the Lasat." In this installment of Rebels Recon, StarWars.com takes a deep dive into the Star Wars Rebels episode “Legends of the Lasat,” with creator interviews and more.

In “Legends of the Lasat,” we learn that Zeb was a captain in the Lasan Honor Guard. “People have recognized that Zeb seems to be the most militaristic of the bunch,” says the Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo. “So now we get to see where that comes from. Zeb meets fellow survivors, Gron and Chava — a significant development for the Ghost crew’s bruiser.

“He has, finally, some balance in his life, when he realizes he’s not the only one,” executive producer Dave Filoni says. “He doesn’t have to carry that burden.” 

The episode also offers insight into Lasat culture — including a connection to the Force. “Spirituality and what you can label as the Force, is not something the Jedi have exclusive access to,” Hidalgo says.

Finally, Andi Gutierrez contacts Pablo — on vacation — with a fan question: Is Sabine’s father Obi-Wan Kenobi? And is Rey Sabine’s daughter with Ezra? The answer should be interesting! Enjoy!
