Watch The First LEGO Trailer For Star Wars: The Force Awakens

As soon as the excitement over yesterday's teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens died down, LEGO animator Snooperking went to work, recreating the entire thing brick-by-brick.

It's a bit sloppy, but he made the entire thing in under 24 hours, so he can have all the leeway he wants.

From the YouTube description...

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

Now that's some dedication. Hopefully his grandparents won't mind if he grabs a nap on their couch.

You know, I've been thinking about why I prefer the original trilogy more than the prequels. There are several reasons, but on a purely aesthetic level I think it has a LOT to do with "clean vs dirty" (or maybe "worn vs new"). I honestly feel like the gritty, organic nature of the OT locales combined with the blocky and dirtyness of the ships are big factors in my preferences. It's like every mech/ship has been 1) used for many many years or 2) have been in SERIOUS action within a short period of time.

Less of this:

I feel like the director of VII is really appealing to my aesthetic preferences and I'm so fucking excited for this movie. I also feel like the blocky used cars of the Star Wars universe translate better into Lego form than their prequel siblings.
