Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Trailer Shows Off Shirtless Kylo Ren Pumping Iron

A new trailer for the long-awaited Lego Star Wars game focuses on the villains.


Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga releases April 5, and ahead of that, Warner Bros. and TT Games have released a new trailer for the game focusing on the villains set to appear in the long-awaited title.

The video is titled "Darkness is Rising," and it focuses on the dark side of the Force, including villains from across the nine films represented in the game. Some of the baddies on display in the trailer include Emperor Palpatine, General Grievous, Kylo Ren, Boba Fett, and the main man himself, Darth Vader. This is a Lego game, though, so don't expect it to be too serious or scary. After all, the video shows Kylo Ren in a funny t-shirt expressing his love for Vader and another sequence of him, shirtless, pumping iron.
