Does the new (2016) Disney TV series Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures contain spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

Let me explain the motivation for this question.

Darths & Droids is a screencap webcomic based on the Star Wars films and parodying it. The webcomic currently covers the first five episodes of Star Wars and most of the sixth, and will complete the sixth in a few months.

Now Darths & Droids might be continued to cover the seventh episode, The Force Awakens, or it might not: the creators of the comic haven't yet decided. But since it's possible that it will cover The Force Awakens, the creators have brought up the idea that a volunteer could try to avoid spoilers for The Force Awakens film, and experience it from the comic strip first, before watching it.

And since there's no such thing as an idea too stupid for the Internet...

This is, of course, very difficult, for Star Wars is very popular, and there are spoilers everywhere out there that the volunteer would have to try to avoid for a long interval (between two years and five years).

Anyway, Keybounce volunteered as the test subject provisionally, for he is still unspoiled about the movie. But now he asked a question.

Ok, there is a new lego star wars on Disney. It features freemakers and cloud city. Is this spoiling episode 7?

You may answer here or in the Darths & Droids forum thread, I can relay the answer. In either case, please keep your answer free of spoilers for The Force Awakens. I've seen the film, but this question is mostly of interest to those who haven't.

There are no spoilers for Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens (thus far...)

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is set in the years 3-4ABY, between the end of Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and the start of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. As such, there's very limited scope for TFA spoilers. At the time of writing there have been no crossover characters, no anachronisms and no in-jokes relating to TFA in any of the five episodes released

StarWars.com is thrilled to announce LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, an all-new animated television series scheduled to debut this summer on Disney XD in the US. The fun-filled adventure comedy series, set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, will introduce all-new heroes and villains in exciting adventures with many familiar Star Wars characters.

That being said, there are massive spoilers for films 1-6. Be warned.

  • and, given Lego's existing work with this license, they won't waste an opportunity to try and land a joke, no matter how 'spoilery' it might be considered – NKCampbell Jun 28 '16 at 22:21
  • @NKCampbell - My gut instinct is that if they haven't dropped a TFA reference by five episodes in, they aren't going to at all. – Valorum Jun 28 '16 at 22:38
  • @DaaaahWhoosh - Oops. Editing fail on my part. I meant to put 3-5ABY. I've corrected it – Valorum Jul 7 '16 at 16:25
