I received free product in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review.
“Set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, The Freemaker Adventures centers on a family of three young siblings—young boy Rowan, his sister Kordi, and their brother Zander—known as the Freemakers, who salvage parts from destroyed or damaged ships which they use to build new ones, which they sell in order to make their living. They are accompanied by their salvaged battle droid Roger. However, the family become enmeshed in the battle between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance when Rowan discovers part of an ancient artifact known as the Kyber Saber. He then becomes aware of his own connection to the Force and meets a mysterious Force-wielder named Naare before embarking on a journey with his siblings that leads them to meet with new and old Lego faces from the Star Wars universe.”
We were sent a Bluray copy of the first season of “LEGO Star Wars – The Freemaker Adventures Season 1” to review. I’ve watched the first 6 episodes so far with my kids and they really enjoyed it. It took a little bit for me to start liking it as the target audience is younger for sure. I like the concept of how the Star Wars main story lines weave in and out but this story runs totally independent of the main Star Wars plot. It’s cool to see cameos of main characters as well as locations from a few different planets, sometimes only hours or days after key events happened in the movie story lines.
I think this is a great introduction for younger children into the world of Star Wars, and even my older daughters who have watched the original movies enjoyed it as well.
I asked Linda to give some of her thoughts too.
I really really liked it. I liked how Rowan uses the force and tries to find the Kyber Saber crystals. It’s really interesting that Naare is secretly on the dark side. I like that it’s Lego and that it’s Starwars, but totally different then Star Wars.
