It is not surprising that a number of productions have adapted Shakespeare to suit modern times, but never has one featured actors made of plastic bricks and an iPhone.

Lego celebrated the legacy of William Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death by recreating key scenes from three of his most well known and classic plays — Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth — using stop-motion animation. Believe it or not, these scenes were chosen by real children, too (the readers of First News, a children’s newspaper in the United Kingdom).

What are you waiting for? Check it out in the video below and prepare to be completely amazed and totally entertained! While you are at it, grab the kids and introduce them to some of the most classic literary works!
