You LOVE the Hobbit story, but you just don't have nine hours to spend in the movie theater and reading the books, well, that ain't happenin'. The solution: this 72-second short film of the entire Hobbit saga that is told using Legos. Could anything be so nerdy and incredibly wonderful? Don't even bother answering that question because the answer is clearly "NO." 

The project is the brainchild of director and animator Kevin Ulrich who always enjoyed the Hobbit movies, but felt that Peter Jackson's version was about 33,000 seconds too long.
