In honor of Star Wars Day (May the Fourth), Warner Bros. Games revealed never before seen, new content for its upcoming LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens video game. They gave us a teaser last February and this time, in a fitting tribute to what has been a sacred day for all generation of loyal fans of the Star Wars franchise, WB Games pays it forward by pulling away the veil a little bit more on their latest instalment of LEGO Star Wars video games.
The brand new trailer features the untold tales that culminated to what we now see in Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens, re-told of course under the playful lens of LEGO. These snippets are somehow similar to the series of LEGO Star Wars shorts that has been uploaded on the Toys R Us YouTube channel a couple of weeks ago, beginning with Poe Dameron’s rescueof Admiral Ackbar, followed by Han Solo and Chewie’s voyage to capture the wildly ravenous Rathars. Watch the trailer below.
