Skywalker Sound’s Matt Wood may have prematurely outed a new LEGO Star Wars game that adapts The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.
Who’s ready to go on another adventure in a galaxy far, far away? Star Wars Celebration featured all sorts of exciting announcements, including the reveal of Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. But as it turns out, that may not be the only Star Wars game on the horizon.
As revealed by Skywalker Sound’s supervising sound editor and sound designer Matt Wood, a new LEGO Star Wars game is also reportedly in development. Unfortunately, that’s all we know right now.
Wood outed the game while speaking on the Star Wars Live Show at Star Wars Celebration. The comment didn’t draw a whole lot of attention at the time as it was only passingly mentioned alongside all of the other projects currently in the works.
“So many things we’re doing right now, we’ve got Resistance going, Clone Wars going, we’ve got Mandalorian happening, of course, Episode IX happening, there’s a LEGO Star Wars game we’re working on…” Wood said (via @WillHaddad8).
The slip-up was then verified by Eurogamer; the site “has heard word of the title from sources close to its production.” Described it as an “ambitious” project, Eurogamer reports that this new game is being designed as the “ultimate” LEGO Star Wars game.

It’s believed that this new game will be more than just a LEGO adaptation of the final two films in the sequel trilogy. Beyond adapting The Last Jedi and this year’s The Rise of Skywalker, it sounds like the entire Star Wars saga — all nine films — will be included and given that signature TT Games treatment.
TT Games and Warner Bros. has found tremendous success in giving already popular franchises the LEGO treatment, but LEGO Star Wars is among the publisher/developer’s most successful franchises. To date, we’ve had adaptations of the prequel trilogy, the original trilogy, the Clone Wars TV show, and The Force Awakens. Naturally, a game that wraps up the final two films in the saga makes sense. Making it the ultimate compilation of Star Wars content is an added treat, however.
It’s important to note that none of this has been confirmed by Warner Bros., but an announcement is expected to be made later this year – perhaps around the time Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters.
