LEGO MOVIES – If You Build It They Will Come…

Lego Animators Assemble!

We don’t know about you, but at we’re loving what we’ve seen of the new LEGO movie. Animated largely with real LEGO bricks in stop-motion, albeit enhanced, we suspect, with a large dollop of CGI animation, it’s a screwball adventure featuring all the best loved LEGO toys from 1980’s something spaceman to batman.

It is like a mega-mega-mega-MEGA-budget version of the LEGO fan created movies that have exploded all over youtube. So today, we salute those fans and we celebrate their crazy ambition. Heck, these aspiring auteurs might not have the budget of the LEGO Movie, but that won’t stop them from making their LEGO movies. Their cast maybe small, but there is no limit to their imagination!

…Too much build up for the humble LEGO fan film?

Ladies, gentlemen, master builders, we give you the Spartan War, in LEGO:
