There are a few things I hope are written about me when I pass on. One of those — the naming of my child Wilford Brimley Cocoon Jacks — has yet to happen, but number two on the list is ready to be crossed from my bucket list. Over the past month, my colleague Matt Harper and I have been diligently re-creating the “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” movie trailer using nothing but Legos. It’s been a strange trip since I first laid eyes on a two-inch Ben Kingsley Lego figure at Toy Fair earlier this year, and I immediately knew it was my destiny to animate him.
I think it turned out pretty well, nearly two minutes of stop-motion goodness. So watch below as we bring you pint-sized versions of Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley, Gemma Arterton and Alfred Molina rocking out summer blockbuster-style. And if you enjoy, please retweet it, link it, and generally pass it around. You’ll validate my life’s work.
