The upcoming LEGO video game version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is something die-hard fans are probably going to want to look into, as it’s going to include a bunch of original content that expands on the movie. Especially if you really like that Poe Dameron fellow.
Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac, is a crack Resistance pilot whose part in the new Star Wars trilogy has ballooned quite a bit. Originally he was slated to die in the middle of The Force Awakens, but now he’s become the series’ third protagonist, alongside former stormtrooper Finn and Jedi-to-be Rey. The trailer above is all about Poe, who is playable in LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but the big hook is that the game will flesh out his story and includes a bunch of original dialogue, voiced by Isaac.
It seems that Poe’s not the only character who’ll get extra screen time in the game as well, so if you’re looking for more Star Wars between now and December 2017—or if you’re just hoping maybe something will fill in some of those TFA plot holes—keep an eye out for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens next week.
