Roblox has proven to be one of the most popular creation games out there, raking in over 100 million downloads on Android alone and sitting pretty at number three in the adventure genre on the App Store. Now they've teamed up with another insanely popular franchise in Star Wars ahead of the upcoming Rise of Skywalker movie.

This team-up will be called the Galactic Speedway Creator Challenge and is part of Roblox's annual Winter Creator Challenge that aims to help young players learn important coding and design skills for making their own Roblox games. In this case, they'll be learning how to design and race their very own spaceship.

There will be a series of lessons with all the tools provided for players to build their own spaceship. Once they've built it they'll be able to take it out on the racetrack to test their mettle against other players. Here they'll be able to earn limited-edition virtual items seen in the movie.
