Lego Star Wars – The Skywalker Saga announced at E3
This year’s E3 conference has been one of the most talked-about and celebrated for the event, and while fans went bananas for the first trailer and gameplay reveal of the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, other fans of the long-running sci-fi franchise got extra excited at the reveal trailer for TT Games’ next installment in their high-selling series Lego Star Wars – The Skywalker Saga, which can be viewed in the player below!
The one-minute teaser gives viewers a look at some of the most popular events from each trilogy, including Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson, Men in Black International) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor, Doctor Sleep) fighting Darth Maul (Ray Park, Solo: A Star Wars Story) from Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill, Child’s Play) and Darth Vader (James Earl Jones, The Lion King)’s climactic fight from The Empire Strikes Back in which the former loses his arm and Rey (Daisy Ridley, Peter Rabbit) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver, The Dead Don’t Die)’s climactic battle from The Force Awakens.
As the teaser comes to a close, fans get to see the two most exciting revelations of it all: the game will be hitting shelves next year and will tell the story of all nine films, including the upcoming conclusion to the franchise’s primary storyline, The Rise of Skywalker, which is hitting theaters this December! The new game marks the first time TT Games has developed a compendium of the franchise in one game in 13 years, previously accomplished with 2007’s The Complete Saga, while the developer has released two games in between with 2011’s The Clone Wars and 2016’s The Force Awakens.
The franchise has been a bestseller for TT Games and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, having sold over 30 million copies from its inception in 2005 to 2012 and contributing to over $1 billion in sales for the video games with the combination of the Battlefront reboot series.
