A second season of the animated comedy adventure series "LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" is set to return this summer on Disney XD. Recently nominated for four Daytime Emmy Awards, the fun Force-filled series will continue the story of the Freemakers as they join the Rebellion in their fight against the Empire.

Marc Buhaj, senior vice president of programming and general manager of Disney XD, said, "The series creators expertly deliver an equal amount of comedy and signature 'Star Wars' adventure into their storytelling. We're looking forward to bringing our viewers a brand-new season of galactic adventures with the Freemaker family throughout summer."

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.

Prior to the second season debut, five new shorts that fill in the storytelling between seasons one and two of "LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" debut Wednesday, May 4, on Disney XD in celebration of the "Star Wars" fan-generated "May the 4th Be With You" holiday. A peek of the upcoming season of "LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" will also be revealed at "Star Wars Celebration" in Orlando in April. More details on "Star Wars Celebration" are available HERE.

The first season of "LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures" ranked among Disney XD's top-rated animated series during 2016 and, to date, has reached over 55 million total viewers across the U.S., and amassed an additional 6 million viewer engagements across key digital and social platforms, including Disney XD VOD, the Disney XD app, YouTube and Facebook.

Valeria), Corey Burton (Quarrie), James Urbaniak (M-OC) and Matt Sloan (Darth Vader).
