The two mean almost the same thing, in that you're expressing the fact that you'll be free soon.
However, "get" means "obtain", so "I'll get free" means "I'll obtain freedom". This implies that you aren't currently free, but you will be after some amount of time.
On the other hand "I'll be free" doesn't imply that you aren't free now. The addition of the "soon" makes that contextually obvious, but by itself "I'll be free" doesn't technically mean the same as "I'll get free".
"I'll get free" usually implies that some action will have to be taken in order to achieve freedom. So a slave might say "I'll get free by the end of the month", or someone in a meeting will say "I'll get free in time to come to the other meeting", both implying they will have to do something to achieve it.
"I'll be free" implies that this is something that would happen without them having to do anything to achieve it.
