WARNING: Spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ahead.
2016 is almost over, and what better way to close out the year than with something cool AND cute? And which two things should combine to help us achieve both in one fell swoop? Star Wars and LEGO of course. Spotted by Entertainment Weekly, YouTuber Lego Man has recreated the ending sequence of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with, if his name is any indication, his favorite toy.
Watching a group of Rebels give their lives and do everything in their power to get the Death Star plans to Princess Leia has never been so adorable. Even in LEGO form, Darth Vader tearing through everyone with his one-handed lightsaber moves is still awesome to watch. (Remember how the marketing for Episode III teased we would get to see that, and all we got was “NOOOOOOOO!!”?) Here’s hoping that one of the future spin-off films is about Vader, allowing us to watch him actually become the most feared force (no pun intended) in the universe.
Regardless if they are Legos, action figures, or intricate models, any stop motion creations take a lot of time and effort, and this video shows that Lego Man cares about the craft. And this is not the only Star Wars recreation Lego Man has done. You can check out more of his videos on his YouTube channel here.
So what do you think? Does LEGO make EVERYTHING better, or are some things better left in their original format? What are your favorite “LEGO-ized” movie scenes? Let me know on Twitter @dtrain1813 or sound off in the comments below.
