There are still a number of mysteries left over from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. What has Luke Skywalker been doing this whole time in exile? How did Maz Kanata get his lightsaber? Who are Rey’s parents? How much does the First Order spend on fixing stuff Kylo Ren has broken in fits of rage? But now we’re about to get an answer to a different question that many had fans regarding Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
After Finn and Poe Dameron escape the First Order Star Destroyer, they get shot down and crash in the deserts of Jakku. However, when Finn wakes up in the TIE Fighter wreckage, Poe is nowhere to be found, leaving him to assume that the X-Wing pilot is dead. But then when Maz Kanata’s castle is being attacked by the First Order, a black and orange X-Wing piloted by Poe Dameron swoops in to save the day. So how did he survive? The new LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game has an answer. Read More »

Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams may not actually appear onscreen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but they’re every bit as essential to the story as Rey or Finn or Kylo Ren — arguably even more so, since they’re the architects who designed it in the first place. So why should they have to sit out Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens while Lego Rey and Lego Finn and Lego Kylo Ren have all the fun?
Well, now they don’t. Turns out Abrams and Kennedy are playable characters in the video game, which just hit shelves this week. Click through to see a video of Lego J.J. Abrams and Lego Kathleen Kennedy in action in Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Read More »

As you probably know by now, Disney has teamed with LEGO to release a series of Star Wars animated short films set before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve posted a bunch of them on the site in the past, and they are definitely worth your time. The latest one, the fifth in the series, is titled “Attack of the Conscience” and tells Finn’s (at the time, still FN-2187) story leading up to the seconds before we see he in JJ Abrams‘ Episode VII. Watch that short and the other four previously released LEGO Star Wars animated short films, after the jump.

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!

Back in February, we got word from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm that LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens was coming to video game consoles this summer. The first trailer delivered an amusing spoof of the first teaser trailer for the movie, and now a new gameplay trailer shows how the movie has been spiced up a bit with some trademark LEGO goofiness, not to mention the cool game modes available to be played.

There are a slew of incredible LEGO Star Wars sets out there, but for some reason The Empire Strikes Back hasn’t really properly been given its due diligence in building brick form. Specifically, with the exception of a Snowspeeder and AT-AT, the playsets recreating scenes from the opening battle on Hoth have been lackluster at best. But that changes this spring with a new Echo Base LEGO set that is nearly everything you ever wanted from a LEGO Hoth playset. See more photos below. Read More »
