Just days after the first official trailer of the much-hyped "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was released, a fan spent hours recreating the same with Legos.

According to Daily Mail, the YouTube user – nicknamed 'Snooperking' – is a self-taught video editor. He worked round-the-clock to create the same sets and props, which include the Millennium Falcon as well, and posted his 88-second Lego version of the "Star Wars" Episode VII teaser.

Critics have said that the creator has paid attention to every detail to make it strikingly similar. He made a shot-for-shot remake that has managed to impress most fans.

The U.S. fan has also created other related videos saying that he was extremely "excited for the movie". He wrote: "I had nothing to do yesterday so I started once the trailer came out. I built the Falcon, The X-Wing, the speeder bike thingy, a mini tie fighter, tried to build all the sets, and get all my mini figures put together. Then just filming took forever especially the special effects."

He added that he tried stop motion before the green screen and "that was hard and by this time it was 3 a.m. so like more than 12 hours (I took a three hour break somewhere) and then finally gave up and used sewing string for the X-Wing and just kind of moved my camera around the Falcon. I wasn't as happy with the Falcon shot but I can't work on it at all today, so I had to finish it like four hours ago. Now you know everything about how it was made!"

The feature begins around 30 years after the Return of the Jedi and we see newcomer British actor John Boyega dressed in the stormtrooper regalia (helmetless), running in the middle of a desert and looking panicked and sweaty.
