You can play as JJ Abrams in Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Here's hoping that his special power is lens flare


Not all Star Wars heroes fly ships or swing lightsabers. Some work behind the scenes, directing long-awaited, multi-million-dollar-grossing pop culture phenomenons.


The new Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens game knows this, hence why it has included director JJ Abrams as a playable character; complete with little glasses, a movie camera and a blaster. Joining him is also producer Kathleen Kennedy, who also comes along for the ride in a Star Wars T-shirt.


There’s still no sign of George Lucas yet, but surely they wouldn’t leave him out? Check out Abrams and Kennedy’s grand Lego adventure below, courtesy of video game site Kotaku.
