Exclusive "Behind the Bricks" Disney Living Video Series with LEGO Master Builder, Erik Varszegi, Goes Live on YouTube
Take a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of a LEGO master builder as Disney Living, the official YouTube channel from Disney Consumer Products, introduces you to Erik Varszegi - the brilliant mind behind some of LEGO's most impressive, Disney-inspired creations.
The first of a three-part series, the video features an inside look at the construction of a life-size Jack Sparrow model made entirely out of LEGO bricks. Standing at over 6 feet tall and held together by nearly 150,000 tiny bricks, it's the captain like you've never seen him before! Upcoming videos will feature other Disney-inspired LEGO models including a life-size Lightning McQueen and larger-than-life depictions of Toy Story's favorite playthings, Buzz and Woody.
The LEGO Group will introduce nine exciting and versatile playsets celebrating key scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, including a buildable version of Queen Anne's Revenge (SRP $119.99) and the Whitecap Bay playset ($79.99), where Jack Sparrow and the other pirates encounter mermaids. The line also includes favorite scenes from earlier films in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Fans will have to snap up all the sets to complete their collection of favorite characters in LEGO form.
Walt Disney Pictures' and Jerry Bruckheimer Films' "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" opens in theaters May 20, 2011, in Disney Digital 3Dâ„¢, with screen story and screenplay by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, suggested by the novel by Tim Powers, based on characters created by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio and Stuart Beattie and Jay Wolpert.
