As we get closer to the December release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, fans are starting to piece together more and more of the movie’s plot, which is why any building blocks of the narrative are being cobbled together, no matter how small they may be. Since no block is too small, let’s see what we can do with the newest commercial for The Force Awakens sets from LEGO.
The spot primarily features an X-Wing with loaded weapons you can fire, and while there does not appear to be a whole lot to garner about the film, everyone’s new favorite
soccer ball droid, BB-8, seems to be the focus of a chase and rescue. The ad’s narrator says, “You can build the X-Wing and save the droid.” Shortly after we see the small droid jump into the ship as the narrator yells, “Watch out! It’s Kylo Ren!”
Considering how much information R2-D2 carried around with him for the first six films (him knowing the entire prequels back story and never telling C-3PO is one of the truly great additions from episodes 1-3), how important will BB-8 be? Kylo Ren does try to slice him in two at the start of the ad using his amazing lightsaber with the crossguard.
If you can’t get enough of the team of Star Wars and LEGO, remember the internet is a wonderful place for such needs.
Anything else we can gleam from this ad? Like I always say, the best speculation is the wild kind, so get wild with your theories in the comments below.
