'LEGO The Lord of the Rings' video explores building a blocky Middle-earth

LEGO The Lord of the Rings, the upcoming retelling of the Lord of the Rings trilogy in LEGO form, is the subject of a new video released today from the developers at TT Games.

In the video, the developers discuss the game's creation, including recreating author J.R.R. Tolkien's sprawling Middle-earth in LEGO form while telling an epic story of good and evil. TT Games recently announced that the game, which will include dialogue from Peter Jackson's movie trilogy, would include 85 playable characters.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings is scheduled for an October 30th release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Vita, Wii, DS, 3DS, and PC. You check out the video below.
