In what must be a first in the video game and film franchise, you can play as director JJ Abrams in Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Eurogamer reports that Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy is also playable within the game, but no George Lucas to be found. That's a shame as I would love to be a lightsaber-wielding George Lucas destroying the franchise in the most hands-on way possible.
Kidding aside this is cool news, can't wait to try this game out! The game launched yesterday for those unaware.
