The announcement of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens might have been predictable, but that doesn't mean we're not excited about the prospect of playing through the latest block-based adventure - especially as the movie on which it is based remains so fresh in our minds.

Game Informer has been chatting to TT Fusion's lead story designer Graham Goring and cutscene director Phil Gray about the title, specifically about how certain scenes are adapted to ensure they stay true to the original yet contain plenty of the trademark humour that the franchise has become famous for over the past few years.

Naturally, one of the more shocking moments in the movie crops up (needless to say, don't watch the video below if you've yet to see the film itself), and both Goring and Gray admit that tackling such an event is tricky in the context of a LEGO game, because characters don't actually "die" as such - they simply fall apart, and the studio has used this mechanic to create numerous funny moments in each game.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is coming to the Wii U and 3DS on June 28th.
