LEGO’s upcoming Disney XD series LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures follows the family of space scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy. Based on the events of Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi, the Freemakers are thrown in an epic struggle against the Empire when their youngest discovers a natural affinity with the Force.
Though the much awaited LEGO Star Wars animated series is still slated to debut in summer, LEGO gives us an early glimpse of what it is like to live together with Freemakers through its latest app, the LEGO Star Wars Force Builder. This newest LEGO app takes you inside the massive space station called the Wheel where you will find the family’s Freemaker Salvage and Repair Shop. Using the power of the Force, you can help the Freemakers build the most unique ships in the galaxy. You can also join in their salvage efforts so you can create the wildest, coolest, and most wonderful ships the Empire can reckon with. You’ll also get to meet some of the most famous characters in Star Wars as you help them fend off the enemy forces of the Empire.
What sets apart the LEGO Star Wars Force Builder app among similar apps released by LEGO is that in addition to the range of LEGO Star Wars playsets that you can work with within the app, it also serves as a portal or hub for other LEGO videos and other fun, building activities. You also get to share your digital creations to other app users around the world.
Here’s LEGO’s official description of LEGO Star Wars Force Builder:
Unleash your creativity and master your Force to become the next great Jedi Master Builder with the LEGO Star Wars Force Builder App.
Use the Force Builder to construct and fly ships of your own design. Recreate starships from the Star Wars movies, or mix engines, wings, and blasters to invent new vehicles with unique strengths.
Build for speed, maneuverability, or firepower, and then choose a pilot and take your vehicles into the Test Tunnel to see how they withstand a barrage of environments and obstacles.
Showcase your ship collection in your Hangar, where you can revisit and adjust them whenever you wish. Help others complete build challenges in the Mission Bay to rise in the Jedi ranks and unlock new vehicle parts. Demonstrate your mastery of The Force using the Photo Booth to set the scene and upload your Force Builder creations to the LEGO Star Wars Build Gallery.
Seek wisdom and laughter in the Video Portal, where you can view LEGO Star Wars animations, cartoons, behind-the-scenes videos with Jedi Master Builders, and more.
Find and share inspiration in the Build Gallery, where you can contribute your own creations, as well as view and discuss Force Builder creations by Jedi from around the galaxy.
The time has come. Awaken, and master your Force.
