"We were always going to go big!"

Since EA took over the Star Wars video game licence, it's been 5 years of either microtransaction-riddled disappointments, unfinished rush-jobs for the sake of flogging season passes, or outright cancelling the most promising projects because of money. So far, only Jedi: Fallen Order has been the sole exception to that rule.

When it comes to the Lego games however, it's something that everyone can look forward to, no matter what age you are, and Lego Star Wars games always turn out to be the best of the bunch.

The Complete Saga remains one of the best in TT Games' catalogue, but The Skywalker Saga looks to improve on every level.

There's not a huge amount we know yet about the game, but the following is a brief overview of everything we do know so far.

8. Voice Acting Is Back

The first few Lego games solely relied on silent slapstick comedy to tell their story. It was undoubtedly funny and the stories were told very well indeed, but some moments were left quite awkward, like the "I am your father" moment, where Vader just showed a picture to Luke.

Starting with Lego Batman 2, the games began using a full voice cast to tell their stories, while games based on films like Lord of the Rings and Jurassic World ripped audio direct from the films.

The Skywalker Saga is set to use a combination of the two as it did with The Force Awakens, taking audio from all nine episodes for their storytelling, and hiring voice actors for the background characters.

Some of the main cast are set to reprise their roles also, the first name being Billy Dee Williams returning as Lando Calrissian, with others expected to follow.
