Can We Just Get A Full-Length LEGO Lord of the Rings Movie Already?

No? Okay. At the very least, the Brotherhood Workshop is here to fill the void. This is their latest work: a LEGO-reimagining of the Desolation of Smaug trailer.

And, for comparison, here's the original. I especially love the way the LEGO version replicated the rushing water effect.

I have to say, if someone WERE to do a full length LEGO movie, I'd hope they'd seize the opportunity to milk all the creativity that LEGO helps empower and develop their own ideas, rather than recreate something someone else has done. Not to poo-poo what the people here have done, I respect the effort that goes into recreating all these set pieces.

Perhaps a LEGO movie in the vein of the LEGO games... based on something serious, but full of whimsy and satire as well.
