Star Wars trailer recreated using nothing but Lego — watch

on November 29, 2014, 3:48pm

YouTube user and master Lego builder Snooperking has made a scene by scene recreation of the trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens using nothing but Lego. Most impressive? It took him less than 24 hours.

Snooperking writes in the YouTube video’s description box: “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 3am so like more than 12 hours (i took a 3 hour break somewhere) and then finally gave up and used sewing string for the X-Wing and just kind of moved my camera around the 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, but i just woke up to go to my grandparents house, and now you know everything about how it was made!! :P”

Watch Snooperking’s video, along with the film’s actual trailer, below. Both are masterpieces in their own right, but even J.J. Abrams has to be impressed by Snooperking’s insanely fast turnaround.
