SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in theaters now.
The LEGO movies have become a geek craze over the last couple years, especially in their depiction of DC Comics' superheroes, but as Huxley Berg Studios has shown, this animation style can be just as effective for Star Wars. The studio, known for its LEGO takes on trailers and movie clips, has now adapted the throne room scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi that seals the turn of Kylo Ren to the Dark Side.
The clip clocks in at around two-and-a-half minutes and is a carbon copy of what we saw the in film. It focuses on Supreme Leader Snoke overpowering Rey, taking her lightsaber and taunting her with the possibility of death. It's then that Snoke tries to coax Kylo into killing her to officially become his true apprentice. However, Kylo resists and uses the Force and cut Snoke in half with Rey's lightsaber that was next to the old villain all along.
The clip stays true to the LEGO visual style we've seen on the big screen and uses the scene's audio from The Last Jedi itself for effectiveness. This re-emphasizes though that as cute as the scene looks, it's still pretty dark, especially as we hear the SFX of cackling lightsabers when the clip ends with Kylo and Rey fighting off Snoke's Praetorian Guard.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma.
