Star Wars Celebration Europe in London may all well be over, but with the Force still lingers over in the internet, we can still expect a lot of LEGO-wielding Jedis and Padawans relishing on the events that transpired at the Excel London Exhibition Centre. As awesome as Star Wars Celebration Europe is, frankly speaking, not all the panels were given the live-stream treatment particular those that converge with our love for the LEGO brick and the galaxy far, far away.
Thankfully, Star Wars’ official YouTube channel has uploaded those LEGO-related panels that were not streamed live like the rest of its programs. This is a great favor for us who were not able to attend the celebrations. First up is the LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens Panel featuring an in-depth look on how the LEGO Star Wars video game franchise developed over the years. Watch this.
The panel featured Douglas Riley from Lucasfilm Games, Jonathan Smith, Head of Production at TT Games and Graham Goring, Lead Story Designer of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Video Game, all of which revealed some fun facts and interesting information on how the latest addition to the LEGO Star Wars video games were created. The panelist also hinted at the possibility of a LEGO Rogue One videogame anytime soon.
A more recent upload gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the latest LEGO-inspired series currently being aired at Disney XD. The LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, which began airing on Disney XD last June 20, follows the Freemakers – a family of intergalactic scavengers who operate a salvage and repair shop in space. Their relatively peaceful world is turned upside down when their youngest discovers a natural connection with the Force through an ancient artifact – the Kyber Saber. Here’s what executive producers Bill Motz and Bob Roth, together with director Michael Wegner and Matthew Wood (the voice behind the droid R0-GR) has to say during the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures panel.
Season 1 of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is currently being aired at Disney XD and various On Demand services.
