LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer

In a move surprisingly literally nobody on the entire planet, Warner Bros. Interactive announces LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

If you are surprised, then I apologise for speaking on your behalf, but you really should be familiar with the format by now: a movie comes out – then we take a scripted pause for a moment, so that the LEGO marketing people don’t tread on the toes of the movie marketing people – and then the LEGO video game version immediately follows. Essentially it’s a shot-for-shot remake, with cutesy LEGO jokes and interactive, open-world sections, and many a venerable series has received the treatment: Batman, The Avengers, The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Jurassic World… hell, even The LEGO Movie got a LEGO video game, which is all kinds of meta.

Today is the turn of Disney’s epic blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens to take its turn on the LEGO merry-go-round and while it shows no signs of deviating from the formula, it erm, actually looks kind of brilliant.


LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PC on June 28, 2016.
