We recently received word that the new LEGO Star Wars show, LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, will be hitting Disney XD some time this summer. But, the fun doesn’t stop there! The channel will also be debuting an animated 5-episode short form series titled LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises, on Monday, February 15. Check out the clip below for a fun sneak peek.
The action-adventure comedy series will follow the likes of Kylo Ren, Han Solo, Finn, Rey, BB-8, Maz Kanata, and more, and takes place ahead of the First Order’s attack on Jakku.
The first episode, “Poe to the Rescue,” is set to air immediately after the Gravity Falls finale at 8 p.m. EST. It will follow Resistance pilot, Poe Dameron, as he embarks on a mission to rescue Admiral Ackbar from the clutches of Captain Phasma. Other characters slated to appear in the premiere are Kylo Ren, C-3PO, and BB-8.
