Set between the events of “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” the action comedy series follows the Freemakers, a family of sibling scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space. The series will also feature familiar characters and locations from the filmed Star Wars saga.

“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures” is an all-new animated television series that introduces new heroes and villains in exciting adventures with many familiar Star Wars characters, vehicles and locations from across the Star Wars saga. The fun-filled, half-hour series combines the excitement, action and adventure of a galaxy far, far away with a dose of LEGO’s signature brick-building humor.

Set between the events of “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” the series stars the Freemakers, a family of sibling scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space and scour the galaxy for useful debris to build new vehicles of their own design. Rowan Freemaker, the spunky Force-sensitive 12-year-old with a thirst for adventure, is voiced by newcomer Nicolas Cantu. His quick-witted older sister, Kordi, voiced by Vanessa Lengies (“Glee”), manages the family business and is the glue that holds the family together. Ace pilot and charming rogue Zander, voiced by Eugene Byrd (“Arrow”), is the oldest brother and the family’s self-proclaimed starship connoisseur. Lucasfilm’s Matthew Wood voices R0-GR, also known as Roger, a refurbished battle droid from the Clone Wars adopted by the Freemaker family.

The humorous and action-packed tale of good versus evil begins when Rowan discovers the Kyber Saber, an ancient artifact with a powerful connection to the Force. Their world is turned upside down as they are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers learn the true value of what it means to be a family.

“Star Trek” Reboot TV Series To Start Filming In Fall, Will Air on CBS’ Digital Pay Platform

The upcoming Star Trek reboot has finally revealed some details about the series, and some of them may be cause for concern to some fans.

CBS has announced that filming for the series will begin this Fall in Toronto, Canada. CBS TV Studios announced the news on their Twitter:

Additionally, according to Trek Core, during CBS first-quarter earnings conference call, CBS president Les Moonves explained that the series will not be on broadcast television, but will be part of their All Access streaming service next year.

[“Star Trek”] will be episodic, week by week. It won’t be the Netflix [way].

CBS All Access is the only place to get the entire ‘stack’ of CBS shows, and this January, we will begin streaming our first original series. All Access will be the home of the first original “Star Trek” series in eleven years.

[The premiere episode of] “Star Trek” will debut simultaneously on All Access and the CBS television network, with subsequent episodes exclusively on All Access.

We have one of the best creative teams behind this show, and we’re confident that its large, passionate fan base will lead to substantial, profitable subscriber growth.

Once again, every other streaming service was after “Star Trek.” We could have cashed in for a lot of money, selling it to Netflix, Amazon, Hulu… they were all very interested in it.

We know that “Star Trek” is a high-priced, quality product, and – knowing that we will have very strong international sales which we are already getting in – it’s important that we show everybody that All Access is a priority for us… and there are a lot of very rabid “Star Trek” fans who are going sign up for it.

Unfortunately, that means fans will have to join their subscription based service to access the series, rather than watch it on free TV. International markets may fare better, but for North America – this is our fate.

Bryan Fuller, who started his writing career with the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager TV series, is co-creator and executive producer of the new series. Shepherded by Alex Kurtzman who also exec produces, the series is slated to premiere in January 2017 with a preview broadcast on CBS followed by an exclusive run in the U.S. on CBS All Access.
