LEGO STAR WARS: THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES REVIEWED
“Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures” follows a family of scavengers in between Empire and Jedi, as they scour the Universe. Well, it turns out that they are on the hunt for a giant Kyber crystal. You’ve probably seen Rogue One by now, so you know the impact it’s going to make on the Star Wars universe. The series is aimed directly at kids, so continuity gets a bit fuzzy. Still, there’s puffy magnets inside the collector’s case and a guest spot by Maz Kanata.
Star Wars is for everyone and I appreciate Disney’s efforts to open the field to all fans. While the thirteen episodes in Season 1 seem to tell a complete story, I’m not sure if I feel the need to pick it up with Season 2. “Rebels” has that immediate urgency to its animated adventures that I don’t get from this show. But, little kids seem to love it. Let everyone be merry.
