Briefly: While most Star Wars fans have been focused on the ways in which the creation of George Lucas will return to the big screen via Star Wars Episode VII and the small screen via Star Wars Rebels, someone else has already embedded Star Wars characters in another movie.
The LEGO Movie, coming on February 7, 20104,, already features Warner Bros. superhero characters such as Batman and Wonder Woman. But perhaps thanks in part to the Star Wars license enjoyed by LEGO, representatives of the Rebel and Empire forces will be in the movie, too.
The Wall Street Journal reports the inclusion, but doesn’t have any detail about which characters will show up. There will reportedly be a reveal of the characters in the coming weeks.

The new trailer for The LEGO Movie, from 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With a Chance of Meathballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, continues to suggest that the two guys have pulled off an impressive feat by making a toy commercial movie that looks good.

Warner Bros. has been trying to get Wonder Woman to the big screen for years, and they’re finally on the verge of success. The catch? She’ll be rendered in Lego bricks rather than flesh and blood.
