Updated (6: 14 a.m.): Warner Bros. Interactive and Lucasfilm have now officially announced LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The original story continues below.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is heading our way in June, according to an apparently inadvertent listing on Xbox.com and a leaked trailer (below).
The news obviously shouldn’t come as a surprise. However, neither Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment nor developer TT Games had revealed the project was in the works. Expect official world later this morning, as Warner Bros. had tipped off media outlets that it would make a “massive announcement” today.
No sooner did Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment trumpet the all-star voice cast for LEGO Dimensions than it’s back with the launch trailer for the franchise-spanning toy-to-life game.

We already knew LEGO Dimensions would include Valve’s popular puzzle game Portal in its mashup world, but this new trailer from Warner Bros. and TT Games demonstrates just how fully it will be integrated.
In the video, which debuted at E3, Portal‘s primary antagonist GLaDOS puts Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle through a series of tests that can only be solved using the LEGO Dimensions Toy Pad (it’s what allows players to introduce characters, vehicles and devices into the toy-to-life game). The footage also depicts Homer Simpson, who doesn’t fare so well, and Portal’s protagonist Chell.

Interactive Entertainment made it official that we’ll be seeing The Simpsons, Scooby-Doo, Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, Portal, Jurassic World, LEGO Chima and Midway Arcade franchise).
Less than two months after WB Games and TT Games announced LEGO’s answer to Disney Infinity and Skylanders, they’re returned to officially unveil what appears to be LEGO’s response to the wildly popular Minecraft.

Similar in approach to the popular Skylanders and Disney Infinity, LEGO Dimensions will enable players to purchase LEGO sets that they’ll build into characters, vehicles and devices that can be introduced into the game with the Toy Pad. They’ll be able to mix and match characters and objects from a range of properties, changing and expanding gameplay.
