PotC goes Lego: “Pirates of the Caribbean – the Lego Movie”

14 July, 2010 at 11:10 am 4 comments

Media fans are often very dedicated to their hobby, and many of them are amazingly creative. That’s a great thing, because it means we all get more mileage out of a movie or a TV show. And if you’ve ever suffered through “Pirates of the Caribbean: At Wits End”, you’ve learned to appreciate the quality of fan movies.

Philippe Vergauwen is the name of one such fan, and he’s worked 1.5 years on the Lego-version of “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” (the first half of the movie, that is). And while he skipped some key scenes, he did include all our beloved naval gentlemen. So you can enjoy Commodore Norrington, Lt. Gillette and Lt. Groves all Lego-shaped! Plus Mullroy and Murtogg, of course.

Oddly enough, Lt. Gillette starts out as a marine, and the Admiralty would probably not have approved of stubbles and moustache, but eh, Commodore Norrington isn’t a good role model there, so we’ll let it slip.

Mr. Gillette has a mid-scene uniform change on his way to the Dauntless, but it looks like he’s lost his razor. Maybe Lt. Wilkinson could have helped him out there.

We all know that this won’t end well for our hero…

Commodore Norrington and Lt. Groves watch the goings-on aboard the Dauntless with great suspicion. Also, Mr. Groves seems to be the only one in the Royal Navy who owns a razor blade.

“… and then the Interceptor sailed into the sunset…”

This is great fun, and just the right distraction in this heat (it’s 38° here, the asphalt is melting and so am I). Compliments to Philippe and thanks for sharing!

You can watch the videos on youtube:

      Yes, it’s annoying. I have no idea why it’s gone, it was a neat little movie. Darn it. :-/
