The Grand Budapest Hotel Envisioned as Lego Construct
A very special opening awaits! In celebration of the June 17th Blu-ray and DVD release of The Grand Budapest Hotel, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is readying to unveil a version of the illustrious European hotel constructed entirely of Lego bricks!
Take a tour, with trusty lobby boy Tony Revolori, in this video showing how it was built!
Ryan Ziegelbauer and his team of eight model builders – all die-hard fans of Wes Anderson – spent 575 hours building and designing the replica of the exquisite hotel. To construct the model, more than 50,000 certified Lego bricks from collectors and wholesalers were sourced from Lithuania, Poland, Latvia, Germany, Italy and 14 different states in the U.S. The final model will weigh approximately 150 pounds and stand 7 feet tall and 6.5 feet wide.
