LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens game re-imagines the movie as a comedy

True to LEGO re-interpretive style, the next video game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is a comedic take on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The best way to make this clear is through a new take on the original teaser trailer for the film - you know the one.
