The Star Wars Rogue One trailer got the Lego treatment

first_imgI’ll admit that I’m already a fan of both Star Wars and Lego trailers, so it’s a good bet that I loved this new Rogue One trailer in Lego pretty much from the start, but there’s so much to love here.It says something about the trailer itself that it can be redone in Lego and retain the tension and gravitas of the original, but you have to give a lot of credit to the creators because they did some pretty amazing work. The Lego Star Destroyer set against the Lego Death Star was pretty epic, and can you ever go wrong with a Lego Gonk droid?The more I see of Rogue One in any form, the more excited I am for this Star Wars movie, especially because it’s unlike any Star Wars movie before in that it’s a one-off and will begin and end in one movie. We know the basics of the story: it’s a heist to steal the plans for the Death Star, but how that happens and who’s involved is surely worth a full story.Plus, is it me or does Mon Mothma come off no matter what she’s made of?The animators also made behind the scenes and VFX breakdown videos if you’re into that sort of thing (I am), so they’re included for your viewing pleasure. If you want to know more about the talented people who make this video, head over to the Animator’s Collective and read about them.last_img
