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).
