“When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and The LEGO Movie are swept away. To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex and quickly find themselves fighting to save all of LEGO humanity.”

With the wide variety of characters already announced it has raised some questions about the type of characters that are to come in the future. With Disney’s Disney Infinity there is an unlikelihood of seeing Marvel characters in LEGO Dimensions. This will possibly give DC characters their chance to shine. Fans are already requesting Harry Potter characters, The Simpsons characters, Ghostbusters, Doctor Who characters, LEGO City characters, and even Scooby Doo characters.
What characters would you like to see in the game? Out of all of the announced characters so far, who are you most excited about?
