Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-writer and director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy have been transformed into LEGO mini figures that are playable in the newly-released LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens game. Players discovered the unlockable characters nly days after the game was released. Kotaku released gameplay footage that reveals both Abrams and Kennedy as LEGO characters with blasters, and they can take Resistance missions, command toops, and grapple plugs. Abrams wields a camera and if he's left unmoved he will start to frame up a shot with his hands. Watch the gameplay footage below:

 

You'd notice that Abrams' figure is based on how the filmmaker appeared in the Force For Change video on the set of The Force Awakens in Abu Dhabi. Kennedy's character resembles the producer's look on stage at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.
