Kathleen Kennedy & J.J. Abrams Included As Playable Characters In 'Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

By: Benjamin Hart

In addition to all the expected and beloved features included in each Lego Star Wars video game. every one of them also comes with it's own set of surprises. It seems Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is no different and word has gotten out about two new playable characters that no one saw coming.

It appears that none other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens director and co-writer J.J. Abrams, along with Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy, have been transformed into Lego mini figures that are playable in the game. The news came just days after the game was released and players began to discover the trio as unlockable characters. In some gameplay footage released by Kotaku it was revealed that both Kennedy and Abrams' characters include blasters and can take Resistance missions as well as command troops and grapple plugs. Abrams in particular includes a camera (of course) and if he's left unmoved he will begin to frame up a shot with his hands.

Those with a keen eye will notice that Abrams' character is based on how the director appeared in the first Force For Change video on the set of The Force Awakens in Abu Dhabi. Kennedy's figure also bears resemblance to the legendary producer's look on stage at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.

What other famous behind the scenes figures would you like to see immortalized in a Lego game? Let us know in the comments below.
