The Star Wars Trilogy Video In 2 Minutes

This video retells The Star Wars Trilogy in 2 minutes using Legos and stop animation.  The video is great fan fun.  Watch the video above.

I love the scenes picked to highlight all of the events from the three movies.  There are many ships, settings, characters, and events featured.  One of my favorite is Yoda chilling in a recliner under an umbrella on Dagobah.  In context it's hilarious.

The language used is very casual and without names which works since the voice narrating it is a child.  This lends to the fun relaxed nature of the video.  For instance the scene where Darth Vader reveals his identity to Luke is phrased as "That was when the Boy got very surprising news about his dad... Wud up son."

I want that Lego collection, Wow!

  • LEGO: The Adventures of Clutch Powers:  This one is so weird that I couldn't pass it by without mentioning it.  I get the feel that this will watch like the lego games will play which means I will at least laugh at it.  Clutch Powers and his team of LEGO experts on their adventure from LEGO City to the Space Police prison planet to the medieval world of Ashlar where they must help the rightful heir to the King’s throne find the courage to regain the kingdom from the evil wizard Mallock the Malign. Their brick-building skills will be put to the ultimate test as they face off against Mallock’s skeleton army. Get ready for an action-packed adventure like nothing you have ever seen before, The Adventures of Clutch Powers!

  • Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant: Based on the first three books of the book series The Saga of Darren Shan Theater or Renter: October 2009 by author Darren Shan.  A fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares.  Still a renter, I've heard mixed reviews of the movie and even netflix thinks I will give it a 3.6 which is in the wild card part of the rating.
