It doesn’t come as a surprise that the galaxy’s freewheeling, Freemaker family is back for another round of intergalactic adventures in Season 2 of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. Seeing two of the recent LEGO Star Wars sets dedicated to the animated series – the Arrowhead (75186) and Tracker 1 (75185) – we’re very much positive that the new series will be a sure hit, especially that they have found their way to the Rebel Alliance. We get to see the Arrowhead in action, and the Emperor’s newest minion aptly named as M-OC.
At the end of the first season, the Freemaker family found a new home with the rebel fleet. Their new circumstances bring them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords, and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC, a terrifying hunter droid who continually modifies himself to fit any occasion. In response to these threats, Rowan’s powers grow and strengthen until he has a vision of a sleek, invulnerable ship that can save the Rebellion and stop the Empire in its tracks – the Arrowhead. The catch is, the Arrowhead is a ship only Rowan can build. Once again, it’s up to the youngest Freemaker to save the galaxy.
LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Season 2 will launch this summer on Disney XD, just in time for the release of the LEGO Star Wars Arrowhead (75186) and Tracker 1 (75185), both of which will be available on June 1.
This piece of news has been floating around for quite some time, and it deserves a second look. A couple of days ago, The Brothers Brick has reported that LEGO Movie’s Unikitty will be having her own TV show on Cartoon Network (CN). Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network are currently in the works in coming up with a Mixels-style series that also serves as a sort of LEGO Movie spinoff. The reveal was ‘unintentionally’ made through a trailer ad from Cartoon Network Russia. The said video was later on posted by just2good over at his YouTube channel only to be taken down later on due to a copyright claim by WB. In any case, it seems that Unikitty is off to a good start with a couple of friends from Cloud Cuckooo Land as you can see from the screen grab which we managed to obtain below.
Based on its artwork, it is clear that CN will be bringing back its Mixel-style of animation in this untitled Unikitty series. We can only speculate at this point on the possible names of the characters that Unikitty brings along with her: Unipuppy? NerdyKitty? BouncerBird (I know, it sounds horrible!)? Are we also to expect physical sets based on this series same to what they did with Mixels? Was Mixels even cancelled to give way to Unikitty, or will this Unikitty series eventually culminate to the debut of LEGO Movie 2 which is now currently in production and will be released sometime in 2019? These are questions yet to be answered until LEGO and Warner Bros release their official announcement.
The LEGO Unikitty show is expected to air on Cartoon Network Russia anytime soon. We have no word yet on when it will be aired in the US and the rest of the globe.
So what do you think brick fans? Does this Unikitty TV series comes as a surprise? We’ll certainly cover these interesting turn of events every step of the way so be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show.
