LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga: Release Date, Platforms, Teasers, Trailers And Everything We Know

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is coming, and it'll tie together all nine mainline movies in the franchise and wrap them up in its charming, slapstick, blocky aesthetic.

Players will be able to hop to any movie in any era of Star Wars, meaning you'll be able to work from the Phantom Menace all the way to the Rise of Skywalker content and earn yourself almost 500 characters to play as.

Here's everything we know so far.

Latest News

800 Characters? - 25th January 

Dawn McDiarmid, one of the lead hub designers over at Telltale Games has noted in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine, that there will be over 800 characters within the game. 

As well, there will be 23 locations for players to check out over the course of the game.

One of their biggest projects to date for sure! 


Game Delayed?

According to a now-deleted LEGO Store post, the game has been delayed until 2021!

Release Date

The game will arrive in Spring 2021.

Originally slated for October 20, the game's trailer was reuploaded without a date.

That, combined with the news above about a potential delay, means it could be a while until we get hands-on.



The game was previously intended to arrive on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but a move to 2021 could see it arriving on next-gen platforms, too.

Confirmed Characters

In among the almost 500 characters we'll be playing as, we can expect to play as the likes of Luke, Rey, Obi-Wan, Finn, BB-8, and a whole host of others.

We can even try our hand at being the baddies, stepping into the helmet of Darth Vader, the robes of Kylo Ren, or even the lightning-loving Emperor Palpatine himself.
