Hold on to your butts!
Paul Hollingsworth and his daughter Hailee have reimagined the original Jurassic Park (1993) in a way that even Spielberg never could have: using only Lego bricks.
Yes, the Isla Nublar and all of its fantastic and horrific happenings have been recreated using everybody’s favorite colorful, interlocking plastic blocks, and, oddly, it’s just as entertaining as ever.
We’ve seen Jurassic Park spoofs and spinoffs before, but this is something truly impressive. The stop-motion short uses After Effects composition to bring the iconic film to life in a way you’ve never seen before. Apparently, the project only took the father-daughter duo three months to complete. That sounds like a much more disciplined approach to playing with Lego bricks than you had as a kid.
So we know how much time the family put into this awesome creation, but how much did all those Lego pieces costs? The price tag for all the Lego involved in the short was $100,000. Yup, a whopping hundred grand of miniature plastic blocks. Pretty sure there are motion pictures with smaller budgets…
Still, it’s a nice reminder that we have Jurassic World coming out on June 12 to take us back to our childhoods and see what’s going on at the park 22 years after the events of the first film (probably nothing good).
What do you think of the video? While the description tells us Hailee did her fair share of the work, something tells us that dad was the driving force behind this project.
Love Lego? Love ‘Jurassic Park’? Then you’ll love this this video! You can’t even imagine all the detail – or money – that went into this!
