Want to know more about Lor San Tekka and how he got part of the map to Luke? How about Poe Dameron? I know you want more Poe. There are a few Force Awakens secrets to be found in Alan Dean Foster’s The Force Awakens Book and in about a month, a new Lego game will uncover more untold stories. “Lego Star Wars:  The Force Awakens” will detail scenes not in the movie, including more on how C3PO got that red arm, and

“Lego Star Wars:  The Force Awakens” is in stores June 28th. There will be SPOILERS.
