There are Star Wars fans, and then there are complete Star Wars obsessives.

One of the latter has spent more than 12 hours remaking The Force Awakens teaser trailer with Lego, and the result is pretty awesome.

The first glimpse at JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars film dropped online on Friday and since then, more than 20 million people have viewed it.

But YouTuber Snooperking reckoned the clip would look a whole lot better in bricks, and set about copying all 88-seconds frame-for frame.

The Lego video features lead actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac as miniature toys, the legendary Millennium Falcon spaceship, the X-Wing and even the new ‘badass but stupid’ lightsaber.


“Came back from my grandma’s to find this video with half a million views, holy s**t,” Snooperking wrote on YouTube. “It isn’t even that good I thought the visual effects sucked but thanks for the kind words.

"I tried stop motion in front of the green screen and that was hard and by this time it was 3am to like more than 12 hours and then finally I gave up and used sewing string for the X-Wing and just kind of moved my camera around the Falcon.

"I wasn't as happy with the Falcon shot but I can't work on it at all today."

May the *ahem* Lego force be with you.
