The Battle of Hoth Recreated in Minecraft, as an Incredible Animated Short

In December, reader Grahame made one of the coolest Minecraft videos I've ever seen, recreating Star Wars' famous "trench run". He's outdone himself now, though, with this animated rendition of Empire Strikes Back's Battle of Hoth.


It took him two months just to build the "set", and six days to film it and get it synced up with the movie soundtrack.


Those wondering, Grahame says he used no mods in the filming of the sequence, just his basic models, game effects and some camera work.

Ok, so this guy did a great job building the set but other than that it's... I don't know. I guess I just don't see the point in trying to animate it. If you're going to go through all the time and energy to build something like this and then set it to the movie soundtrack why wouldn't you use something that can actually be animated. I don't want to take away from the work the guy did but the end product just falls short in my opinion.
