When LEGO started combining their building blocks with licensed properties it made it easier for talented animators to recreate their favorite scenes, trailers, and in some cases entire films from their favorite franchises. Anyone who has done stop-motion animation can tell you that it is a labor of love. It takes forever, but it is extremely rewarding when it all comes together. The Brotherhood Workshop spent the last two months creating a LEGO version of the recent trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. In my opinion this is almost as good as the original, but that could be my bias towards the cute little plastic guys.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens in in 2D, 3D, HFR 3D, and IMAX 3D on December 13th.

And for comparison, here’s the real trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Here’s the official synopsis:

The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellan) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
