‘LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Plot Spoilers Revealed, Did It Beat Gamers’ Expectations?
It was not long when the silver screens were packed with Star Wars fanatics. Now, the gaming world is clamoring on the all-new LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens game.
What’s even more exciting is the fact that the LEGO Star Wars game might have some answers on the pending questions left on The Force Awakens Film.
According to BBC, the storyline for LEGO Star Wars will provide answers to fans’ questions like “Why did C-3PO have one red arm?” or “What was Han Solo doing on a ship full of multi-tentacled bitey ball monsters?”
Franchise producer Warner Bros. announced that LEGO Star Wars will have about three levels of backstory that are connected to The Force Awakens. It could also be possible that there will be featurettes to highlight the upcoming sequels of the movie franchise.
One of the confirmed pieces of information that was given out by Warner Bros. was Rathtar Hunting. According to WB, it would follow “Han Solo and Chewbacca’s voyage to capture the ravenous Rathtars.” At the same time, LEGO Star Wars will cover the storyline that tackles C-3PO’s red arm.
The rich plot of LEGO Star Wars also made up for the other characters that were not focused on The Force Awakens film. The game will feature Lor San Tekka, who was played by Max Von Sydow in the movie.
From the Trailer to the Game Play, LEGO Star Wars Is A Winner!
LEGO Star Wars is not just banking on the current fame that surrounds the franchise right now. Even the fans are working hard to provide a full-on Star Wars experience. They even collated the world’s best LEGO animators just to create the two-minute trailer for LEGO Star Wars. The animators worked for three weeks just to complete the clip.

The animators did a side-by-side LEGO trailer with the new Star Wars trailer. They used the same voice-over and they even copied then actual YouTube thumbnail. Check out their masterpiece below.
Aside from the general trailers, Warner Bros. also have their own original trailer for the game. This is a lot more exciting for fans especially since the graphics is very close to the LEGO aesthetics.
LEGO Star Wars will have a high-definition graphics, but they will retain the LEGO corners.
Even Jordan Devore from Destructoid was impressed by the LEGO Star Warstrailer.
“Having seen the movie three times now (once in a theater in an eye-melting front-row seat; again in a different theater at a proper viewing distance; a third time at home a few weeks ago) I was not expecting to watch this trailer and go, ‘You know, I actually want to play this.’
“I’ve had my fill for a while. I’m good! But between the ‘Crimson Corsair’ (so that’s who that dude was!) and a mission in which you spring good old Admiral Ackbar from a First Order ship, I am feeling this one.”
With all the hype around LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the buzz will just continue after the June 28 release because of its satisfactory performance.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3, Nintendo 3DS, Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation Vita.
