You will probably never look at The Last of Us Part 2 trailer the same way after watching this.
As we all know by now, Naughty Dog has made their biggest game to date and now that we are aware that the gameplay will come in at around 25-30 hours long, you can be sure we’re in for one hell of a ride this around. To build the hype up for The Last of Us Part 2‘s release next week on June 19, we also can dive into some podcast content that will give a deeper look into what has made the series so memorable and affecting over the next two months. If you thought for one second that that’s all you have to look forward to until you get your grubby mitts on the game, then you have another thing coming as now we have The Last of Us Part 2 Lego story trailer and it’s everything you could possibly want and more.
Pavesome Films on YouTube which is run by Pavel Prokhorov, recreates popular movie scenes, trailers, or other videos in Lego stop-motion animation. Some of their other adventures include Django Unchained, Kill Bill, Captain America, Pirates of the Caribbean, and many more hilariously well done animations. This time, however, Pavel has outdone themselves by recreating one of the earlier trailers to The Last of Us Part 2. As we have seen, the trailers to The Last of Us Part 2 are incredibly bleak and usually quite violent, not normally something you find yourself laughing along to unless you’re a psychopath. But in Pavel’s remake, you can’t help but find yourself giggling at some of the scenes nor take them as seriously as you have done in the original trailers.
Straight off the bat, I found myself busting out laughing at Dina’s huge joint that she hands over to Ellie. I mean, look at the size of that thing! The way the lego’s move is also pretty funny especially so while on horses, it’s the fact that it’s so wrong that makes it so right. The most perfect scene is when lego Ellie encounters a hot dog shambler and also the part where Ellie’s hand is shaking but now it’s a little lego hand instead. It’s so hard to take what was originally intended to be a very dramatic and intense scene seriously and I love it! Pavel has done an amazing job here at not only lining the vocals up with the characters and the action sequences but also their use of ultra smooth animation and fantastic lighting.
