At the start of February, it was revealed (or should I say leaked) that the next game in the Star Wars franchise was set to be LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The game is in development at TT Games and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be released June 28 on Nintendo 3DS, PS3, PS4, XBOX One, Xbox 360, Playstation Vita, Windows PC, and Wii U.
We're so excited to relive the majesty of [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158) in June, but there are several moments from J. J. Abrams' new film that we're particularly excited to reenact. What are the moments you're most looking forward to?
7 Moments From the Movie We Can't Wait To Reenact In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Do we still need to give a spoiler warning for Star Wars 7? Everyone has seen it by now, right? Okay then!
Finn & Poe Escape
One of the best moments in Star Wars 7 comes early on after Finn decides to defect and leave The First order behind him. He needs the help of Poe Dameron, one of the greatest pilots in the galaxy, in order to secure his escape. The two hop into a TIE Fighter together, clumsily take off and then venture out into space with The First Order in toe. Can't wait.
Finn Escapes Again, This Time With Rey
After The First Order tracks Finn's position to a small village on the deserts of Jakku, himself and his new companion, Rey, make for an escape. We can't wait to see a LEGO rendition of Rey refusing to hold Finn's hand every time he grabs her. Also, this is the moment when we first see the Millenium Falcon and the chase that follows here will be a ton of fun to play!
Hey, Han & Chewie
Once the Millenium Falcon is intercepted and captured by its rightful owner, Han Solo, Rey and Finn meet one of the greatest heroes in the galaxy. This scene should be a lot of fun following the accidental release of the Rathtar and seeing how it'll tear apart the ship as the gang makes their way back to the Falcon.
The Attack On Takodana
Once The First Order locate BB-8, they storm the planet of Takodana in search of the little guy. There's so much to look forward to here. Like the arrival of Poe Dameron and the X-Wings, the fight scene between Rey and Kylo Ren, Finn taking on an old Stormtrooper, and Han and Chewie giving us plenty of comic relief.
“I’ll remove these restraints and leave this cell with the door open."
Is anyone else excited to see a reenactment of Daniel Craig's cameo as a stormtrooper? Rey beautifully uncovers her knowledge of the force in a mind battle with Kylo Ren which is then followed by her persuading a lowly stormtrooper to release her from the chair she was confined to. Should be great.
No, Not Han :(
It'll be interesting to see how LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens reenacts the most upsetting moment in Star Wars 7; the scene where we lose Han Solo. Will they keep it this serious? Will they throw in a little joke to lighten things up a bit?
Rey Kicks Ass
The final lightsaber battle of the film, including Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren, should be a fantastic moment to reenact in LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We then only have to see Luke Skywalker at the end and patiently await the arrival of [Star Wars: Episode VIII](tag:711868). Oh, boy. That's going to be some wait.
Are you excited for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
