LEGO Adventure in the City: A brick-animated short story

Once upon a time, a snake went to the zoo and then returned to his home. Suddenly, there was an attack from The Grey and the zoo’s dinosaur gets out! Can the snake help the city?!

This stop motion animated short story, LEGO Adventure in the City, was written and directed by Rogier Wieland for AKQA, Shanghai and LEGO China. It took six animators and two set builders to help bring together a mix of brick-made characters and sets, and some human-sized sets, too!
