When Disney and Lucasfilm gave us a quick sneak peek at what's to come in the new yesterday, fans everywhere showed their excitement online, dissected the trailer image by image and a few even debated the new lightsaber design.

With all the fan hullabaloo over the cast appearances, new lightsaber and the ball-rolling astromech, it's comforting to know that you can rewatch the entire teaser trailer lovingly remade in Lego.

Everything from appearances of "Star Wars" newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac to the iconic Millennium Falcon's exciting flyby is recreated brick by brick in Lego form. Even the cameo of the new lightsaber design gets its own Lego likeness.

Lego tributes to "Star Wars" have always been popular online, so when the first official photo of some of the main cast of the new "Star Wars" film was released in April, it was quickly re-created in Lego.

In "‪Lego Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer‬" by Youtube user Snooperking, we see cast members, including the Stormtroopers, in minifigure form, plus Lego builds of X-wings and the Millennium Falcon.

"I had nothing to do yesterday so I started once the trailer came out so I built the Falcon, the X-wing, the speeder bike, a mini TIE fighter, tried to build all the sets, and get all my minifigures put together," Snooperking stated on his Youtube page. "Then just filming took forever, especially the special effects."

To make the special effects in the video, Snooperking attempted using a makeshift green screen but decided in the end to use a thread to move the TIE fighter around the Falcon.
