LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises

The other day it was announced that the cable channel Disney XD, which has programming with a focus towards tweens, teens and young adults, was launching a new animated series called THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES this summer which would combine zany LEGO adventures with the Star Wars universe.  LEGO, Star Wars and Disney XD aren't limiting their creative juices to just that project though!  To wet viewers appetites for the upcoming new show, a series of LEGO Star Wars of short mini-episodes titled LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance will be featured on Disney XD leading up to the premiere of The Freemaker Adventures.  These mini-episodes will chronicle the adventures of Han Solo, Poe Dameron, C3P0, Finn, Rey, and other characters from The Force Awakens shortly before the events of Star Wars: Episode VII in the goofy and wacky manner that LEGO animated shows have a reputation for.

Disney XD broadcast its first LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance mini-episode on February 15th titled "Poe to the Rescue" and promised more are on their way to TV.  In this first story, pilot Poe Dameron, with the help of C3P0 and BB-8, devise a plan to rescue one of the Resistance's most important leaders, Admiral Ackbar, from Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, and the military forces of the First Order.  Fans of previous LEGO Star Wars shows like Yoda Chronicles and Droid Tales will find these min-episodes are filled with the same tongue-in-cheek humor and slap stick comedy that have made those past series so popular.

If you've missed "Poe to the Rescue" when it has been on television, Disney XD has been kind enough to also post the mini-episode on YouTube.  Check it out!
