LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV features in stop motion animation

The LEGO Group is having fun with the soon to be released LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV, featuring the set in a stop motion animated video that retells the end of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

On May 3, the LEGO Group will release 75244 Tantive IV as the latest LEGO Star Wars set. Ahead of the set’s wide release, a new stop motion animated film has been shared on YouTube that features the set, along with a few other familiar models from the theme. The new minifigures included in the exclusive set have been fully utilised in order recreate the final scene from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Even Darth Vader’s memorable appearance is included, albeit with less violence than was seen in the stand-alone film. The action continues on for a few seconds past the end of the movie, revealing Princess Leia doing a quick-build job to get the blockade runner into Hyperspace and away from a couple of Imperial Star Destroyers that turn up unexpectedly.

LEGO Star Wars 75244 Tantive IV will be available exclusively at from May 3.
