LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures: “Crossing Paths”

LEGO Star Wars The Freemaker Adventures

-Spoiler Review-

The best laid plans of mice and men, right? After declaring the end of wi-fi woes and the beginning of a regular review schedule of The Freemaker Adventures, fate had other plans. Is this increasingly harder to get a hold of show worth tracking down? Does the promise of two massive cameos from the movies (yes, bigger than Dengar and Lando) entice you at all?

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Review: “Peril on Kashyyyk”

LEGO Star Wars The Freemaker Adventures

-Spoiler Review-

I faced about three weeks of technical difficulties (read: no Wi-Fi and no access to Disney XD), but my reviews are back! Ever since LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures started to move forward from setting up the plot and context of the LEGO canon, I’ve been more and more excited for the continuing adventures of the Freemaker family. This episode tones down a bit of the goofy humor and tries to stuff the 22 minutes with more plot and more adventure. Does this shift in tone work for the show? Read on to find out!

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Review: “The Lost Treasure of Cloud City”

LEGO Star Wars The Freemaker Adventures

-Spoiler Review-

There’s a common adage shared amongst a lot of Star Wars fans that most Star Wars TV shows really hit their stride in episode four. The Clone Wars gained a lot of support with episode 1×05 “Rookies” where we saw a new batch of Clone Troopers ward off an invasion and protect their home base. Rebels became remarkably good with the airing of Rise of the Old Masters, in which the crew of The Ghost went to rescue Luminara Undili from the clutches of the Empire, only to be caught by the Grand Inquisitor. What about The Freemaker Adventures? Did the fourth episode make a great show even better?

LEGO Star Wars The Freemaker Adventures

– Spoiler Review –

For those watching The Freemaker Adventures on the Watch Disney XD app, we were shown the first and third episode of the series on Monday, the date of the premiere. The third episode, “Zander’s Joyride”, features a lot of fun callbacks to The Phantom Menace and has a heavier focus on character development for both our heroes and villains. As it is the third episode of the series, spoiler warnings will definitely apply for this review. Is the series worth pursuing past the pilot? I think so. Read on to find out why!

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Review: “A Hero Discovered”

LEGO Star Wars The Freemaker Adventures

Rather than leaving us to wait a full summer for the return of Star Wars: Rebels, Disney XD announced the premiere of a new show: LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. The series, set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, focuses on the Freemaker family, a group of siblings and their droid as they are accidentally thrust into an adventure with millenia of history behind it, and, the fate of the galaxy ahead of it.

Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission Teaser, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Demo Impressions

Sunday’s EA Play Press Conference for E3 2016 didn’t have much to show on the Star Wars gaming front, but Monday night’s Sony PlayStation Conference pulled back a tiny corner of the veil.
