‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Trailer Recreated With Legos [Video]

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer hit yesterday, and it was a force to be reckoned with. Fans of the sci-fi space series have been waiting a long time (though not in a galaxy very far away) to see it, and now we have a slightly better idea of what J.J. Abrams is planning to do with the beloved franchise.

One Star Wars fan went above and beyond in his excitement. YouTube user Snooperking recreated the long-awaited Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer using Legos, and even told the viewers how he did it.

“[This] took forever … hence the upload at 4:00 [a.m.]. [I’m] excited for the movie…

“I had nothing to do yesterday so I started once the trailer came out. [So I] built the Falcon, The X-Wing, [the] speeder bike thingy, a mini tie fighter, tried to build all the sets, and get all my minifigures put together. [Then] just filming took forever, especially the the special effects … [I] tried stop motion in front of the green screen and that was hard, and by this time it was [3 a.m.] so like more than 12 hours. [I] then finally gave up and used sewing string for the X-Wing and just kind of moved my camera around the [Millennium Falcon]. [I] wasn’t as happy with the [Falcon] shot but [I] cant work on it at all today, so [I] had to finish it like 4 hours ago. … [And] now you know everything about how it was made!!”

The Lego remake of the teaser trailer seems to hit all of the same points as the original one released yesterday, and he did a great job with it, especially given the time he put into it.

What do you think of this Lego remake of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer?
