The LEGO Batman Movie was just the latest example of an iconic character being reimagined as a LEGO toy. And while not every movie or character will get the LEGO treatment, you can still get your LEGO fix by watching fan-made LEGO versions of your favorite movie trailers. Many people have been recreating movie trailers of new movies shot by shot on YouTube. Some use the help of special effects, but it’s still great to see what you can make with the childhood toys. So what are the best LEGO movie trailers?
Here are 10 that made us wish that the movies themselves were recreated in this style.
1. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
The new movie expands the Harry Potter universe to tell the story of Newt Scamander, a wizard who has a briefcase full of fantastic beasts. However, his briefcase accidentally gets opened and those beasts are let out in New York City. The original trailer shows Eddie Redmayne in the main role and the adventure that lies ahead of him.
This LEGO trailer does a great job at getting things right almost shot by shot. It was made by LEGO Motion Studios, which has given the LEGO treatment to other big movies on their YouTube channel.
