Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released a series of half-minute character vignettes to celebrate the upcoming release of the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game. LEGO is not a stranger in the video gaming arena with its impressive line-up of video game offerings. This time around, they opted to level up their latest offering by having TFA stars John Boyega (Finn) and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) to actually record some dialogues for the game. Other than the thrill of hearing your favorite TFA actor and actresses through this landmark game, these series of shorts also feature some in-game scenes and gameplay that all avid gamers will be quick to catch. We suspect more similar character portrayals in the next few days before the game finally lands in stores on June 28.
