It’s Star Wars Day! Some of us were hoping the day would bring a Star Wars: Episode VIII teaser trailer or some kind of new sneak peek for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. But instead, we’re getting a bunch of sales on Star Wars merchandise, and promotions of new goods on the way, like the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game coming to shelves this summer.
A new LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer has just arrived, and I will say that one thing making this particular LEGO Star Wars installment is the involvement Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and even Harrison Ford as their respective characters from the movie. They got Harrison Ford to say the phrase “Wookiee cookies,” for crying out loud! It adds a certain level of authenticity and more fun that the previous LEGO Star Wars games were lacking. Watch below!
Here’s the new LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer:
The missions for this game are pretty cool, giving us side stories that we didn’t see play out in the movie (though since this is a LEGO game, they’re not canon). For example, you get to see Han Solo hunt some rathtars, Poe Dameron rescue Admiral Ackbar, and Captain Ithano (a.k.a. the Crimson Corsair) do some bounty hunting.
If you’re looking for more, here’s eight minutes of actual gameplay footage to check out from IGN:

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens takes players deeper into the new film than any other game with all of the heroic characters from the movie, including Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and BB-8, as well as Kylo Ren, General Hux and Captain Phasma, while also exploring iconic Star Wars locales, such as Jakku and Starkiller Base.
This action-packed adventure introduces new gameplay features, including the enhanced “Multi-Builds” system, where players can choose from multiple building options to advance the game. Gamers will be able to engage in intense new Blaster Battles for the first time, utilizing surrounding environments to drive back the First Order.
