WB Releases Kylo Ren & Jabba The Hutt Character Spotlights For LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens


Today has brought with it two more character spotlights from a LEGO-based galaxy far, far away. One, which has a nice musical interlude, is for a classic villain that many know and love, while the other is for a more current baddie who has surged in popularity within the last year.

Acting as advertisements for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens — which releases in exactly one week from today — these vignettes focus on both Jabba the Hutt and Kylo Ren. One is a slimy (and music loving) evildoer, who has cemented himself as a classic movie villain, while the other recently made his debut in the record breaking seventh Star Wars film.

Outside of being based around two completely different (and very unique) characters, there’s a major difference between both of these trailers. That is how, while Kylo Ren is part of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ base storyline, Jabba the Hutt is being promoted as a downloadable add-on. Well, at the very least, his mission pack is, and it seems to be exclusive to GameStop/EB Games.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will bring the galaxy far, far away, to practically every video game console going, starting next Tuesday, June 28th. Stay tuned for our full and detailed review, which will go live around launch.
