We’re all going to miss our new The Force Awakens heroes till they grace our big screens once more all the way in December 2017. Though we’ve got Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this December to tide us over, fear not! We’ll be seeing more of Rey and the gang sooner than you might think!
Disney XD announced on Friday that they’ll be airing a new 5 episode short series — LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises!
The show is set in the lead up to the First Order attack on Jakku that opens the movie, and the first episode “will follow Resistance pilot, Poe Dameron, as he embarks on a mission to rescue Admiral Ackbar from the clutches of Captain Phasma. Other characters slated to appear in the premiere are Kylo Ren, C-3PO, and BB-8.”
This is sure to whet our appetites for the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens game, which is out on X-Box on June 28th!
And that’s not all! If, even after the current Star Wars: Rebels and the new Resistance Rises you still haven’t got your fix of LEGO Star Wars, you’d best strap in! Disney XD also announced a new series set to air in June — LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures!
The Freemakers are a “family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy.” When the youngest Freemaker discovers an ancient lightsaber, the family is “thrown into an epic struggle against the empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy.” And we’ve been warned to keep our eyes peeled for some “familiar characters” amongst the new ensemble!
“The show masterfully combines the rich heritage of storytelling, great characters, action, and adventure in a galaxy far, far away with the creativity, imagination and humor that only LEGO Star Wars can deliver. We are sure fans young and old are going to love the show,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing & entertainment at the LEGO Group.
We certainly have a lot to look forward to in a LEGO galaxy far, far away!
LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises premieres tomorrow, Monday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on Disney XD.
