This is the way… to make a LEGO Star Wars animation. Forrest Whaley created this action-packed short film featuring Din Djarin as he puts his helmet back on to pursue a valuable bounty.

LEGO sells a smaller wooden minifig, but it’s not as cool as Jason’s.

A spinning camera monitored his condition.
