Quick shots – LEGO The Lord of the Rings brings the cute

Friday, 13th July 2012 07:25 GMT By Stace Harman

It seems the world will never tire of having cultural icons rendered in too-cute digital LEGO blocks and judging by these shots of LEGO The Lord of the Rings from Kotaku, nor should it. While the hobbits look a little like The Beatles (if you squint), Gandalf, Gimli and co look suitably adorable-cum-cool. Hit the break for the heroic half dozen.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings is based on the film trilogy and will feature spoken dialogue from the films for the key characters. The game is expected later this year

    Funny that you mention the hobbits looking like The Beatles, as The Beatles wanted to make a Lord of the Rings movie back in the 1960s, although only Paul (as Frodo) and Ringo (as Sam) would have played hobbits. John wanted to play Gollum, with George as Gandalf. Tolkien wouldn’t give them the rights though, so nothing came of it.

    There’s a book called Tales from Development Hell which details all kinds of lost and stalled movie projects. There’s a whole chapter about it. Allegedly, they wanted Kubrick to direct.
