RUMOR: Start screen for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga leaks

A disturbance in the force

The gang behind LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has been unusually tight-lipped about the project since its original reveal. While we know the game is slated for this year, we haven't really seen anything new about it in months. It appears that might be changing, as a rumored bit of leaked content has made its way onto the web.

The above image is supposedly the start screen for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. It shows off just some of the over 500 characters that will be included in the game. The screen is just a rumor for now, but it certainly looks like the real deal. If it is real, hopefully this means we'll be getting some new details on the game soon.

Epic Mickey composer shares an unused track from the game

An epic tune!

No matter what the game is, there's always cut content. Assets that go unused, levels that are cut, and music that doesn't get its shot. Most of the time that content goes unseen/unheard by the public, but sometimes we're lucky enough to check out one of those lost game snippets.

Epic Mickey composer Jim Dooley has been uploading music from the game to his YouTube channel recently. Most have been tracks that appear in the game, but recently Dooley shared a track that never made its way into the final release. Check out the "Outro Black Pete" tune above!

Concept artist for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker says a set piece for Babu Frik was inspired by the Game Boy

Babu loves portable power

Concept artist Matthew Savage did some work for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker , including a bit of set piece design for the character Babu Frik. Savage took to Instagram to show off some of the design docs he had for Frik's workshop, and it includes an interesting tidbit for Nintendo fans.

According to Savage, one of the computer pieces designed drew inspiration from none other than the Game Boy. In the Instagram post above, you can see a wide-shot of Frik's workshop setup, which features the Game Boy-style device on the left-hand side of the piece. If you click over to the next picture, you get an even better look at the computer tech, which makes it much easier to see its Game Boy origins.

While you might not make the Game Boy connection at first glance, hearing the story from Savage makes the inspiration a lot easier to see.
