In an interview published In Star Wars Insider 167, producers Bill Motz and Bob Roth revealed that the Freemaker siblings were designed by the Lucasfilm art department under guidance of Doug Chiang and were initially drawn as normal humans. Then the artwork was sent to the LEGO team to be interpreted as LEGO mini figures. See more »
Lighthearted and self aware. These characters could star in their own movie
Surprisingly entertaining this show manages to be family friendly instead of simply kid friendly.
It is bursting with personality. To strike a more suitable comedic tone it seems that a few characters were inspired by their puppet counterparts in the Robot chicken shorts. The emperor especially is just a treat to watch him and his antics.
The main characters are also quite well written. The Freemakers do feel like a real family. it is quite heartwarming to see them work together.
Furthermore the setting makes perfect use of the lego star wars setting by merging the master builder concept from the lego movie with the concept of the force. The result is quite unlike everything else in the star wars franchise and a breath of fresh air. using the force to build instead of throwing stuff around allows for a lot more creativity on the part of the writers.
Finally, while a few people might lament the status of the show as non canon to the broader Disney Star wars franchise i must say that this works to the show's advantage. It has far more liberty in its storytelling by being in its own canon.
