Trending: In stunning reversal, Amazon drops plans for HQ2 in New York City in the face of growing backlash

You may have already seen the trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” — which made the rounds last week and fired up fans of “the force” everywhere.

Now, take a look at this version of the trailer, completed with Lego bricks. That’s right, Lego bricks!

Yes, some geeks just have too much time on their hands. The Force Awakens — directed by Star Trek and Mission Impossible film maker J.J. Abrams — is set to debut in December 2015.

Meanwhile, here’s what Lego video creator Snooperking had to say about his creation, which has topped one million views on YouTube.

I had nothing to do yesterday so I started once the trailer came out so i built the Falcon, The X-Wing, The speeder bike thingy, a mini tie fighter, tried to build all the sets, and get all my minifigures put together… then just filming took forever especially the the special effects… i tried stop motion in front of the green screen and that was hard and by this time it was 3am so like more than 12 hours (i took a 3 hour break somewhere) and then finally 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 cant work on it at all today so i had to finish it like 4 hours ago, but i just woke up to go to my grandparents house, and now you know everything about how it was made!
