LEGO and Disney’s fruitful partnership will continue in preparation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The Danish toy company will no doubt produce tons of sets to be released on the upcoming Force Friday to coincide with the latest Star Wars saga film.
But they’re also set to release even more sets to tie in with their animated series on Disney XD, LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, because Disney just announced a second season is on the way.
The Daytime Emmy-nominated series chronicles a family called the Freemakers and their trials in opposition to the Empire, and the new season will feature them joining the Rebel Alliance in their fight.
Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, Programming and general manager, Disney XD, announced, "The series creators expertly deliver an equal amount of comedy and signature Star Wars adventure into their storytelling. We're looking forward to bringing our viewers a brand new season of galactic adventures with the Freemaker family throughout summer.”
Prior to the second season debut, five new shorts that fill in the storytelling between seasons one and two of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures debut Wednesday, May 4 on Disney XD in celebration of the Star Wars fan-generated "May the 4th Be With You" holiday. A peek of the upcoming season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures will also be revealed at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida later this month.

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.
