Want to know more about the new Star Wars saga? Play this LEGO game


Short of digging through the bins of John Boyega and JJ Abrams, there haven't been many avenues for getting new information on the latest Star Wars saga. Not since that restraining order kicked in anyway.

But an unlikely new route to has emerged from an unexpected galaxy: a new LEGO Star Wars game from TT Games will "feature exclusive playable content that bridges the story gap between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

A trailer for the new title has already leaked, filled with TT Games' characteristic charm and wit. Expected to launch on 28 June, you'll be able to play as Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Kylo Ren and BB-8 in a block-based adventure based around the events of The Force Awakens - and unseen elements of the story that bridges the new saga with George Lucas' original trilogy.

Just so long as Jar Jar Binks doesn't pop up, we're happy.
