*UPDATE* Sony has posted the offical Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer to YouTube:

Original story follows:

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens appears to be real, as its debut trailer has leaked online as well as an official product listing appearing on the Xbox Store.

The trailer features iconic moments from the movie recreated in Lego form, including Kylo Ren’s drawing of his lightsaber, Poe Dameron in the cockpit of the X-Wing and BB-8 rolling through the desert, all given a humourous twist, of course.

A product listing on the official Xbox Store revealed more details about the game, stating that it will bridge the narrative gap between episodes VI and VII.

“In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, players relive the epic action from the blockbuster film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens” the listing reads.

“The game will also feature exclusive playable content that bridges the story gap between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The product listing also provides a release date of June 28, with this being a Tuesday, we can expect a UK release date of around July 1.

The last Lego Star Wars game was Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, which launched back in 2011. So fans of both Star Wars and the Lego game series will no doubt be delighted with its long-overdue return.
