This news leaked earlier today but now it’s been officially confirmed – Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens is coming to the usual suspects on the 26th of June.

The LEGO brand has done some great things with the Star Wars universe, giving the Prequels in particular an injection of wit that was much needed. The latest installment in the saga looks set to continue the trend.
