The Freemaker Adventures - Home One

Season two of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures begins with the Freemakers finding a new home with the Rebellion. While the humans prove their value with repairs and ability to trade for parts, Roger (Matthew Wood) ends up getting into trouble (although one of his stunts does earn him a medal when he unintentionally helps the Rebel Fleet take down a Star Destroyer). Another of Roger's screw-ups gets both the robot and Rowan (Nicolas Cantu) involved in a bombing run. Even Zander (Eugene Byrd) gets some short-lived glory by taking down an entire squadron of TIE Fighters... before blowing himself up.

The season premiere is a little different than a regular episode replacing a single story arc with a number of short storylines all tied together by taking place during Freemakers' early days with the Rebellion. One, in which the group steal some Imperial plans, brings back fan-favorites Captain Durbin (Richard Kind) and Lt. Plumestriker (Jeff Bennett) while also providing a cameo by Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams). Quick-paced, "Home One" is a fun season premiere that suggests more zany adventures for the Freemakers this season.
