Watch Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens explain how Poe Dameron rescued Admiral Ackbar

TODO alt text

You did know that Poe Dameron rescued Admiral Ackbar from First Order captivity before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, right? It's a tale best told in virtual Lego brick form. But even if you're not planning to play through Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you can still get the whole, canonical backstory - just check out our handy supercut of all the story scenes from the Poe to the Rescue mission.

That really is Oscar Isaac voicing Poe Dameron there - though not the late, great Erik Bauersfeld as Admiral Ackbar. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens also includes many more examples of narrative filling-in-the-blanks, like how Han Solo ended up with all those Rathtars and a closer look at how C-3PO got his red arm. If you want the whole story, it's kinda essential.
