LEGO Lord of the Rings first trailer released

They've got a cave troll... in this trailer

This fall, LEGO is digging its detachable, plastic hands into another blockbuster movie franchise, The Lord of the Rings. The title was announced earlier last month, but Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has now released a trailer showing their interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic journey to destroy the one ring. Surprisingly, LEGO Lord of the Rings’ characters are fully voiced – a departure from the quirky miming of the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman and Harry Potter series.

From the looks of things, players will be taking control of characters like Gandolf, Frodo, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Merry and Pipin as the explore the locations and encounter enemies from the books and movies.
