Lego Star Wars: Revenge of the Brick September 11, 2006

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Odds and Ends.

I was hoping to find a copy of the tv commercials for the Lego Star Wars 2 video game to share on my blog when I came across this:

Revenge of the Brick is a five-minute CGI-animated movie cobbled together by Treehouse animation for Lego. For those of you who haven’t been keeping tabs, Lego has a line of Star Wars toys and video games that have been very successful of late (I have a copy of the Game Boy version of the first Lego Star Wars game – the prequels – and believe me it’s a winner; the Game Cube version is even better!). Apparently, the guys over at Lego decided to go all out with a movie that captures the spirit of the franchise, pokes a little fun at Star Wars, and plays on the fact that everything is made out of Lego, all at once.

Trust me, it’s cool.

The movie draws on the character base of the prequels, but isn’t set in continuity. Also, there’s a behind the scenes mini-documentary on the Treehouse site, narrated by Mark Hamill (that’s the original Luke Skywalker, for the non-geeks reading this), as well as a short clip of Darth Vader conducting an orchestra of Clone Troopers.

Trust me, it’s cool.

If you missed the links above, you can view the movie here.

Personally, that last scene of Chewie taking the picture in the cantina was really hilarious. But that’s just my inner geek talking.
