According to The Brothers Brick, Patrick Boivin was commissioned to remake the Cars 2 trailer in LEGO. You’ll see some animated facial expressions because how else was he supposed to do that which don’t detract at all from the silky smooth stop motion animation.

Thanks to Anonymous Tipster for the tip.

Update: The video now appears on LEGOClubTV’s Youtube channel.

Some fun facts:

  • Several thousand LEGO bricks were used to create the trailer
  • 3 months of animation
  • Was recorded 24 frames/second like the movie; it’s not common to directing stop-motion at 24 frames/second

24 frames per second is astounding and makes the 3 month development time seem a little short.
