An ironic conversation between two LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga gives a little insight into the development of Episode 9.
Without a doubt, many are eagerly awaiting the next official update on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Other than its various delays (probably and naturally linked to the COVID-19 pandemic), little has been revealed about the game in recent months apart from the wealth of information fans had already known. The game will feature the 9 Star wars movies and include DLC for a variety of related projects, including The Mandalorian.
It will be interesting to see what developer TT Games does to refresh the old content, as well as how the game handles the last two films in the franchise: The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. With that in mind, a recent tongue-in-cheek conversation between two developers gives a little insight into the development of the latest film.
First of all, another important detail to know is that TT Games was not aware of any The Rise of Skywalker content before the film’s release in December 2019. Previous time was spent working on the rest of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, but anything for The Rise of Skywalker probably did not start before that date.
In a farewell message from Jack Chapman, who recently left TT Games for Sumo Digital, he and fellow developer Ryan Roper briefly discussed working on the content for Episode 9. Roper comments that it was a pleasure to working with Chapman and that he couldn’t wait for everyone to see the work Chapman did on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. In response, Chapman jokes that he was suffering from “PTSD” while working on the content for Episode 9, with Roper also saying it was “the most fun. [he’s] had and the most miserable [he’s] summer.”
Please don’t call me back. In a way, it was the most fun I had and the most miserable I was working on the game.

The exact “why” was not mentioned, and it could be for a number of reasons. The aforementioned deadline for content makes sense, especially when work on the final film couldn’t happen sooner. Not to mention that it was around March 2020 that many parts of the world started shutting down due to the pandemic, which likely complicates the development of LEGO Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in the Skywalker Saga contents. After all, in May 2020, the game’s release date was posted on October 20, 2020, just to have that trailer pulled and reloaded without that date on the same day.
In August 2020, a new LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga The release date window was announced in the spring of 2021, but in April 2020, it was delayed indefinitely. It’s been a tough time for the entire industry, but regardless of what Chapman and Roper were referring to, many are excited to see the new game, The Rise of Skywalker and all.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is in development for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
