'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer Recreated In Lego Goes Viral

Combining Star Wars and Lego is a tried and tested formula, but YouTube user Snooperking still had a bit of a shock when his Lego spoof of the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' trailer amassed over a million views overnight.

The video faithfully recreates the trailer released last week for the much-hyped next Star Wars film, Star Wars VII, in Lego bricks.

Snooperking worked into the early hours of the morning on Saturday to create the video, and posted it at 4am. He said he continued into the wee hours because he was excited for the film's release, although he'll have a while to wait as that won't be until December 2015 in the UK.

Overwhelmed by the success of his creation, he wrote in the video's description box: "This is crazy, but thanks for watching."
