Lego has announced the latest entry in its

Lego Star Wars

series, this time taking on the recent megahit film

The Force Awakens.

The existence of Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens leaked early last night via YouTube and an Xbox product page, but the official announcement brought more details.

Developed once again by TT Games, the game will replicate and parody the events of The Force Awakens as well as filling in some gaps between the new film and Return of the Jedi.
