The recent Star Wars resurgence (thanks to Disney's acquisition of the franchise) and the new sequel trilogy of movies has caused an explosion in the number of Star Wars fans around the galaxy. Many of these newer fans didn't grow up on the original Star Wars, but this generation of younglings can still experience them in other ways. When a dated movie just doesn't cut it, video games can step in to help. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is aiming to do just that.

And let's be honest. Adults love the LEGO video game series too. I'm sure it will be on my personal list of the best PS4 games.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

A galaxy far, far away

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be the first game to compile all nine of the series' main entries into one package. Play as various Star Wars characters as you experience the story in this lighthearted retelling.

What is LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga?

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an upcoming video game that adapts the main nine Star Wars films that comprise the Skywalker Saga: The original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the (as of yet incomplete) sequel trilogy.

  • The Phantom Menace (1999)
  • Attack of the Clones (2002)
  • Revenge of the Sith (2005)
  • A New Hope (1977)
  • The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  • Return of the Jedi (1983)
  • The Force Awakens (2015)
  • The Last Jedi (2017)
  • The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

According to publisher Warner Bros. Interactive, all nine films will be compiled into one brand-new video game package, not unlike LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, which bundled up levels based on the original and prequel trilogies.

So far, we know that there will be a total of 45 levels, with each episode receiving five story missions each. Previous versions of this game included a main hub where characters jumped off to experience separate missions. This game will be set up similarly, but will have a specific hub for each episode rather than simply sharing one hub for all the episodes.

If you're wondering whether or not you'll be able to play as your favorite Star Wars characters that appear in the main Skywalker story, the chances are pretty high. There are going to be over 500 playable characters to choose from. I know I'm excited to run around as Boba Fett, Darth Maul, and Han Solo among others.

Who is making LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga?

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is being developed by Traveller's Tales within the company's new engine known at NTT and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment rather than a Disney publisher.

Will LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga adapt other Star Wars movies?

It doesn't look like it will adapt any other Star Wars movies other than the main nine episodes. The anthology films Rogue One and Solo will be left out as they don't directly tie into the Skywalker family's journey.

What can I expect from LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga gameplay?

Though its announcement trailer didn't show any actual gameplay, you can likely expect it to play similarly to previous LEGO Star Wars games. You'll play through levels based on certain parts of each movie and complete them by exploring, solving puzzles, and building LEGO tools to progress. And because it's a Star Wars game, you'll surely be able to participate in lightsaber duels and use your Force powers.

The developer did not reveal what, if any, new gameplay mechanics would be making their way to LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, but the studio did say that fans will have "complete freedom to explore the LEGO Star Wars galaxy." And best of all, The Skywalker Saga will feature hundreds of playable characters with a massive amount of content.

Will players be able to fly a TIE fighter, X-wing, or the Millennium Falcon?

We don't know all of the game specifics yet, however, we wouldn't be at all surprised if the game allows you to pilot these iconic spacecraft. We know for sure that there will be podracing on Tatooine and the ability to man an Alliance snowpeeder on Hoth, so it really doesn't seem out of the question for actual space battles to exist as well.

Will it remake the previous LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga?

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, which originally came out over ten years ago, isn't just being thrown into The Skywalker Saga and ported over. The Skywalker Saga is a completely new game, and for the first time fans can hop in at any point in the franchise timeline, whether they want to start with The Phantom Menace or skip all the way until The Last Jedi before they get a taste of the final movie.

The Force Awakens was adapted into a LEGO game a few years ago, but it's also being completely remade from the ground up for The Skywalker Saga. The Last Jedi film never received a LEGO video game counterpart, so this will be the first time it is adapted in this way.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga: What else should we expect?

Disney is doing what Disney knows best, animation. It seems we will be seeing a LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga animated series. While very little is known about this additional project for the LEGO Star Wars title, so far, many believe it will be tied in with the release of the game some time late 2020. Thus far, it is expected the animation will be handled by WilFilm, the studio behind The Freemaker Adventures and Droid Tales.

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special

You might have read the above title and gotten traumatic flashbacks of the infamous Star Wars Christmas Special from 1978. Fear not, this is something completely different, though it does center once again around the Wookiee holiday, Life Day. For one thing, it features LEGO versions of Rey, Finn, Poe, Rose, R2-D2, and a slew of other familiar characters. Hopefully, the only reason it will make you laugh is because it intends to. From some of the promotional images we've seen, it looks like it's going to be a hoot.

Apparently, the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special will be filled with festivities that help us celebrate "the entire Star Wars saga." It isn't directly tied to the upcoming game, but since the game was delayed until 2021, the holiday special will give us some of that LEGO/Star Wars charm to get us through 2020. The special will come to Disney+ on November 17, 2020.

Best Buy's website states that it is offering an exclusive steelbook to anyone who pre-orders LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. So, if you'd like to get an extra special collectors item, you'll want to order the game as soon as you can.

If rumors are to be believed, this steelbook will depict a LEGO Han Solo encased in carbonite. We do not know for sure if this is the real look of the steelbook, but it certainly would be fitting, wouldn't it?

We're investigating into this matter and will update when we learn more.
