Friends, initially I was going to write up an article on the passing of Joe Ruby – the legendary animator, writer, and producer of countless animated series – although perhaps best known for being co-creator of Scooby-Doo. The truth of the matter is I was about a paragraph into the post when I realized I didn’t have the heart to write it – 2020 has delivered a stunning amount of deaths in regards to some of our favorite entertainers. While I am going to write up something to honor Joe Ruby for tomorrow morning – I just wanted to focus on something a little more upbeat. Which is why it was fortuitous that a friend on Facebook sent me a link to the gameplay trailer for the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga as I was in need of a good laugh… and it most certainly delivered with a heaping of the feels too.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is set to be released in the Spring of 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Playstation 4 and 5, as well as the Nintendo Switch. While not mentioned in the gameplay trailer itself – the title is listed on Steam – perhaps it will be debuting on PC at a later date?
The upcoming game will allow Star Wars fans to play through all nine films that make up what we now call the Skywalker Saga – in addition you can tackle any of the movies in whatever order you feel like. Of course as this is a LEGO video game that means you can expect the usual exceptional humor – gently poking fun at the Star Wars saga from tackling who shot first in the Cantina to Porgs.
I will admit I am probably an easy sell when it comes to LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga – you can judge for yourself after watching the trailer below.
