LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a video game developed by Traveller's Tales that was released on June 28, 2016. The game adapts the events of the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens in LEGO form, and includes exclusive content that bridges the story gap between Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. A deluxe edition version of the game includes all season-pass content. This is the first installment of the main LEGO Star Wars game series not to have been published by LucasArts, due to that company's dissolution and the first game to cover exclusively one movie instead of an entire trilogy. It was also the last LEGO game to be released for Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and Xbox 360.

Plot summary[]

Prologue: The Battle of Endor[]

Long before Luke Skywalker's
disappearance and the rise of
the FIRST ORDER, the
tyrannical Empire is preparing to
destroy the Rebel Alliance once
and for all.

As the Rebel fleet draws closer
to the second DEATH STAR,
Luke Skywalker has turned
himself over to Imperial forces
to confront Darth Vader one
last time.

The Rebel strike team led by
Han Solo makes it way
towards the Imperial shield
generator on Endor, but a
deadly surprise lies in wait for

Han Solo and Princess Leia attempt to shutdown the shields on the forest moon of Endor

Four years after the Battle of Yavin, the Rebels led by Han Solo on the forest moon of Endor take out the shield generator of the second Death Star. In space, the Millennium Falcon, flown by Lando Calrissian and Nien Nunb, attacks the inner core of the second Death Star, destroying it. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker turns Darth Vader back to the light side, fighting and killing Darth Sidious, only for Vader to be fatally wounded and die. On the forest moon, the Rebels celebrate their victory.

After Darth Vader's mask was removed by Luke, he has Anakin's head, but Luke shakes Vader's helmet to get Vader's headpiece. Darth Vader becomes good again after Luke shows him a child's drawing of them. Qui-Gon Jinn and Darth Vader appear as Force Ghosts in the epilogue of Return of the Jedi.

Chapter 1: Assault On Jakku[]

Chapter I
Luke Skywalker has vanished. In
his absence, the sinister FIRST
ORDER has risen from the ashes
of the Empire and will not rest
until Skywalker, the last Jedi,
has been destroyed.

With the support of the
REPUBLIC, General Leia Organa
leads a brave RESISTANCE. She
is desperate to find her brother
Luke and gain his help in
restoring peace and justice to
the galaxy.

Now, the Resistance has
received word from one of their
allies that he has obtained vital
data which could aid them in
their cause. Poe Dameron, the
Resistance's finest pilot, is
immediately sent to help....

Thirty years later, the Rebels are renamed "The Resistance" and the ashes of the Empire become the First Order. Luke goes missing and Leia now leads the resistance by herself. Pilot Poe Dameron returns to the base after saving Admiral Ackbar from the First Order, and is sent to the planet Jakku to meet with Lor San Tekka, who has the map to Luke Skywalker's whereabouts. After acquiring the map, Poe puts it in his droid BB-8 and sends him away as the First Order, led by Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma, captures Poe for interrogation and kills San Tekka.

Chapter 2: Escape From The Finalizer[]

Chapter II
During a mission on Jakku to
recover vital data to aid the
RESISTANCE, Poe Dameron is
captured by Kylo Ren of the
First Order, who will stop at
nothing to prevent the
Resistance from finding Luke

While BB-8 flees with the data
hidden safely inside him, Poe is
transported to Ren's Star
Destroyer, where it seems his
fate is sealed...

Aboard the Finalizer, Poe is saved by FN-2187 from the First Order and after stealing a TIE/sf space superiority fighter, they crash-land on Jakku. Meanwhile, BB-8 is captured by a group of Teedo, only to be saved by a young scavenger named Rey, who takes him to her home in the remains of a downed AT-AT.

Chapter 3: Niima Outpost[]

Chapter III
After crashing back down to
the planet Jakku and fearing
Poe is gone, Finn set off
across the arid desert in search
of civilization.

Some time later, Rey and BB-8
arrive at Niima Outpost to sell
scavenged components, not
knowing that BB-8 is valued far
more highly by sinister forces
both inside and outside the

Poe seemingly dies from the crash and FN-2187, now renamed Finn, comes across Rey and BB-8. However they are soon found by First Order troops and are forced run for their lives. After a fierce firefight, the three of them escape the planet aboard the Millennium Falcon, which has been abandoned on Jakku for many years.

Chapter 4: The Eravana[]

Chapter IV
After stealing a Corellian YT
freighter, Finn, Rey, and BB-8
evade their First Order pursuers
and escape from Jakku,
stopping only to make
emergency repairs on the
damaged vessel.

Having struck a bargain with
Finn, BB-8 reveals the location
of the RESISTANCE base as
being within the Ileenium
system. With this information,
success is finally within their

While in space, they are picked up by Han Solo and Chewbacca, who had come to reclaim their "home," which had been stolen from them years earlier. Rey and Finn inform them that BB-8 contains a map leading to Luke Skywalker. On board the smugglers' current ship, the Eravana, Finn is alarmed to find that Han Solo is smuggling rathtars. Before they can talk any further about getting the map to the Resistance, the Guavian Death Gang boards the ship to confront Han and Chewie. Han has Rey and Finn hide while he takes BB-8 to ensure they will not flee with the Falcon. However, this turns out to be a mistake, as Bala-Tik recognizes BB-8 from the bounty the First Order has placed on it and reveals that they are aware of his deal with their rivals, Kanjiklub, who had also boarded the ship. In an attempt to aid Han and Chewie, Rey tries to shut the blast doors, only to accidentally release the rathtars from their cages. As a result, they are forced to flee the Eravana while facing attack from both the gangsters and rathtars.

Chapter 5: Maz's Castle[]

Chapter V
Finn, Rey, and BB-8 are once
again aboard the Millennium
Falcon, having only narrowly
escaped from Kanjiklub and the
Guavian Death Gang.

Now accompanied by the
Falcon's rightful owners, Han
and Chewbacca, they plot
a course for Takodana.

Although home to scores of the
galaxy's most unscrupulous
smugglers, Takodana may also
be their best hope in getting
BB-8 safely back to the

After escaping the Guavian Death Gang, Kanjiklub, and the rathtars, Rey, Finn, BB-8, Han, and Chewbacca travel to the planet Takodana. On their way, Han looks at the map data stored in BB-8 and reveals it is only a piece of the map, then explains how Luke went into hiding after the New Jedi Order he had been creating was destroyed by one of his apprentices who had fallen to the dark side. He explains they are going to have to get BB-8 onto a new ship, as the Falcon can be easily traced. As they leave the Falcon, Han gives Rey a blaster pistol for protection.

They enter a castle where they meet with its owner, Maz Kanata, whose assistance they require in getting BB-8 to Leia and the Resistance. Maz, however, refuses, saying that Solo has been running from the fight with the dark side. She explains how she has seen evil take many forms: the Sith, the Galactic Empire, and now the First Order. However, Finn becomes terrified at the suggestion that they fight the First Order and decides he can no longer stay with them if they plan to confront the First Order. He tells Rey he is not with the Resistance, and Maz points him to join Sidon Ithano and his crew if he wishes to leave the plant. While Han sits down to talk with Maz, Rey is drawn to a vault on the lower level and finds the lightsaber that once belonged to Luke and his father, Anakin Skywalker. She experiences disturbing visions and flees into the woods. Unbeknownst to her or her companions, First Order operative Bazine Netal informs the First Order that BB-8 is on Takodana. Resistance spy droid GA-97 also sees BB-8 and informs the Resistance.

Chapter 6: Battle of Takodana[]

Chapter VI
Frightened by her encounter
with the Force beneath Maz's
Castle, Rey flees into the forest
confused and haunted by these
visions from the past.

Meanwhile, the First Order
demonstrates the terrifying
power of their Starkiller weapon
by destroying the Hosnian
system, the very seat of the
Republic. Such is the scale of
the destruction that it is
witness as far away as
Takodana itself...

Starkiller Base fires and destroys the Republic capital and a portion of its fleet. The First Order attacks Takodana in search of BB-8. Maz gives Finn Skywalker's lightsaber for safekeeping, and together with Han and Chewbacca they fight the invading First Order stormtroopers. During the battle, Finn is confronted by his former comrade, FN-2199, who attacks Finn for his betrayal. FN-2199 ends up defeating Finn despite Finn's best efforts, though Han easily kills FN-2199 with a shot from Chewbacca's bowcaster. Despite their victory over FN-2199, they are soon surrounded by First Order troops.

Han, Chewbacca, Maz, and Finn are saved by Resistance X-wing fighters led by Poe, who had managed to survive the earlier crash on Jakku. After Poe and his squad fend off First Order TIE Fighters attacking General Leia's ship, she lands on Takodana with C-3PO and reunites with Han and Chewbacca.

Meanwhile, Kylo Ren confronts and captures Rey, after she tells BB-8 to go find the others, as he is too important to be captured. Han, Chewbacca, and Finn witness Rey's capture, but can do nothing to save her.

Ren takes her to Starkiller Base and removes his mask, showing her his true face. However, when he interrogates her about the map, she is able to resist his mind-reading attempts and is even able to turn the tables on him, revealing that he fears that he will near be as strong as Darth Vader, causing Ren to leave in frustration.

Chapter 7: The Resistance[]

Chapter VII
Having captured Rey, the First
Order hurriedly withdraws from
Takodana, their forces overrun
by reinforcements from the

Kylo Ren attempts to use his
powers to extract the location
of Luke Skywalker from Rey. To
his surprise, she is able to

Kylo Ren informs Supreme Leader Snoke that Rey resisted his attempts and that she is strong with the Force. General Hux reveals that the droid has likely reached the Resistance. Snoke decides that the Resistance must be destroyed before they can reach Skywalker. Hux reveals that they tracked one of the Resistance's ships to the Ileenium system, so Snoke orders him to prepare the Starkiller to destroy the Resistance once and for all. Kylo Ren insists he can get the map's location from Rey, but Snoke orders him to bring the girl to him instead.

Meanwhile at the Resistance base on D'Qar, Finn and BB-8 are reunited with Poe, who they are happy to learn is still alive. However, their reunion is cut short when Leia pulls Finn aside and insists he assist them due to his knowledge of the First Order. They are forced to work together to activate the manual override for the base's blast doors, which had been locked down due to a fire, in order to reach the base's main control room. BB-8 uploads the data into the Control Room's computer, but they find that the map is only partially complete and matches no known system on record. C-3PO points out that they simply do not have enough data to find Luke, dashing Leia's hopes of bringing her brother home. To make matters worse, Leia is informed that the Starkiller's next target is D'Qar. BB-8 finds R2-D2 and tries to rouse him, only to be informed by C-3PO that his old companion has been inactive since Luke's disappearance.

As Starkiller Base prepares to fire on D'Qar, the Resistance devises a plan to destroy the superweapon by attacking a critical facility. Admiral Ackbar points out that the Resistance cannot penetrate the defensive shields around Starkiller Base, but Finn tells them he can disable the shields, and Han volunteers to get him there on the Falcon.

Leia, C-3PO, and Finn help load the Falcon with weapons, fuel, and Wookiee Cookies for Chewbacca. Before they leave, Leia urges Han to return with their son.

Entering the facility, Finn reveals he doesn't know how to deactivate the shield and only came to rescue Rey, forcing the trio to improvise. Realizing Captain Phasma would know how to deactivate the shield, Finn decides to capture her. After a fierce battle with Phasma and her troops, the trio capture her and force her to lower the shield, before dumping her out with the trash compactor.

Chapter 9: Destroy Starkiller Base[]

Chapter IX
Having deactivated the shields,
Finn, Han Solo, and Chewbacca
head deeper into Starkiller Base
in search of Rey.

Meanwhile, Poe Dameron leads
the RESISTANCE pilots towards
the icy planet, hoping to destroy
the Oscillator and cripple the
Starkiller superweapon once and
for all. If they fail, it will mean
the end of the Resistance....

With the shield down, Poe leads the attack on the base's thermal oscillator, but they are unable to damage it and are soon confronted by First Order TIE Fighters.

Discovering she can use the Force, Rey escapes using a Jedi mind trick on a nearby guard (FN-1824). After Rey reunites with Han, Chewbacca, and Finn, they decide to aid the Resistance pilots attacking the base by detonating explosives within the base. After placing the charges, Han confronts Kylo Ren, calling him by his birth name, Ben. Han implores his son to abandon the dark side and tries to convince him that Snoke is only using him for his power. Ren refuses and kills his father, shocking both Solo's company and stormtroopers, and an enraged Chewbacca fires a blaster shot at Ren. Chewbacca then sets off the explosives, allowing Poe and squad to attack the thermal oscillator and destroy Starkiller Base.

Rey and Chewbacca escape with Finn in the Falcon. On D'Qar, the Resistance celebrates while Leia, Chewbacca, and Rey mourn Han's death. R2-D2 awakens and reveals the rest of the map, finally revealing Luke's location to the Resistance.

"We are thrilled to be bringing back the LEGO Star Wars videogame franchise, which kicked off such a beloved series of LEGO titles more than a decade ago."
―Ada Duan[1]

Much like LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game and LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy before it, the game is a humorous take on the film on which it is based. However, unlike the previous games, the characters have full spoken dialogue, some of which is recordings from the films, while new dialogue is provided in the game-exclusive content. Several of the film's original actors, including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Anthony Daniels provide the new dialogue for their respective characters.

The gold bricks which require a rapid-firing character to destroy, as well as the ability to command troops from LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars return, as does the ability to travel to different planets.

This is the first LEGO game to introduce Multi-Builds, where players can use available bricks to build new paths, and Blaster Battles, where players can use their surroundings to fight back against the First Order. In addition, enemies can now build, allowing stormtroopers to support each other with reinforcements, air strikes, and heavy artillery, adding another layer of danger to the game.

The fighter-based levels have also been redesigned, and are very similar to those of the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron series, in which the ships can move in all directions in a large, open environment, rather than being constrained to movement on a horizontal plane as with previous games.

The game has six additional unlockable missions. One mission explains what happened right before C-3PO got his red arm, while another shows how the rathtars were captured and brought to Han Solo's ship. The new levels have a basis in Star Wars canon according to the game's staff.[8] The Phantom Limb DLC is exclusive to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC and is available for free on the PlayStation platforms.

The season pass includes exclusive characters and three new levels: Poe's Quest for Survival, First Order Siege of Takodana, and Escape from Starkiller Base.[9]


"LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be pushing the series forward with innovative new gameplay mechanics, while also exploring new parts of the universe that are sure to excite and delight both LEGO and Star Wars fans, as well as newcomers to our games."
Tom Stone[1]

Development of the game began in 2015,[8] with the game demo released in mid-June 2016.[10] Traveller's Tales had made this the first LEGO game with all the voices from the movie. By the time Rogue One was released to theaters in December 2016, Lego made every single character in the movie in the UK and US.
