Over the course of three (soon to be four) “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, we’ve seen the likes of Captain Jack Sparrow, his merry band of pirate pals and even his most cutthroat foes battle their way through extraordinary circumstances involving undead privateers, legendary sea creatures and man-eating tribal warriors.
So, really, in the grand scheme of things — Sparrow versus the wonderful world of Legos? Piece of cake.
For your viewing enjoyment, MTV News has created a fantastic stop-motion recreation of the “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” trailer using — you guessed it — Legos! Every scene from the action-packed trailer comes back to life here, albeit in a significantly more yellow and blocky flavor than you’re probably used to.
Created by MTV’s very own Matt Harper and Brian Jacks, our Lego “Pirates of the Caribbean” trailer utilized 80 scenes, 1,800 individual photos and more Lego action figures and set pieces than you’re likely to find at Richie Rich’s not-so-humble abode. (Okay, probably not that many, but there were a lot!) The result is a fully faithful homage to one of our favorite trailers of the year, one that heralds the grand return of one of the most recognizable adventure franchises and iconic heroes of the last decade.
Sure, it took a lot of work to get this bad boy finished, but it was worth every second — and it certainly doesn’t hurt that we now have a shocking amount of Lego pirates to play with on our lunch break here at Movies Blog HQ.
