If you’re like most Star Wars fans, you’ve probably spent years dreaming about what life would be like if you got to traverse the Star Wars galaxy with the likes of icons Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Princess Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher), and Han Solo (Harrison Ford), or even alongside newer characters like Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), and Finn (John Boyega).

Now, thanks to a newly announced Star Wars project, this dream can become a reality — at least in virtual form. According to StarWars.com, the new “LEGO Star Wars: Castaways” game will allow players to officially “join” the Star Wars universe by creating their own unique characters.

Per the official announcement:

The heroes of their own Star Wars adventure, gamers will visit a mysterious new planet, meet and team up with friends (other “Castaways”), race Microfighters, and experience classic Star Wars moments. They’ll also unlock hundreds of collectible pieces to customize their minifigure and solve a mystery to save this community of Castaways on the ruins of an ancient civilization. Throughout, players can battle foes, solve puzzles, and hone skills in battle and flight simulations; those looking to share the fun can hang out with friends in the Social Hub and communicate through LEGO emotes, as well as challenge parents, siblings, and friends in the Hippodrome, or join forces to complete quests to earn rewards.

Although details about the “mysterious planet” have not been released, from the screenshots [above] it does bear a resemblance to the Imperial-occupied — but otherwise tropical paradise — Scarif, which was heavily featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) and is reportedly appearing again in the upcoming Rogue One prequel, Andor, starring Diego Luna as Captain Cassian Andor.
