You can play as JJ Abrams in Lego Star Wars: Force Awakens

But not as George Lucas.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens lets you play as the film's director, JJ Abrams.

Abrams is one of more than 150 characters on the game's roster of minifigures, along with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. But there's no sign of Star Wars' former head honcho George Lucas.

Lego games often include joke characters, and Lego Marvel games have in the past featured legendary creator Stan Lee.

The lack of Lucas isn't a huge surprise - Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise has moved the series firmly out of his hands - which you may think is no bad thing.

JJ and Kennedy are both aligned with the Resistance in the game - they are goodies, in other words. Maybe the next Lego Star Wars could feature Lucas as a Sith?
