So, Lego Super Hero Movie Maker. It’s an official app from Lego that ties in with its DC Universe Super Heroes range, which includes Batman, Superman and similar characters. The idea here is an app that lets you use those toys to create your own stop-motion superhero movies.
“Simple tools and guides make it easy to shoot, edit, even score your movie with music. Add one of the customizable title cards and share it online and who knows, you may have the next summer blockbuster in your hands,” claims its App Store listing.
There are five soundtracks and 11 title cards to choose from, and the app is free – clearly, Lego will be making its money from sales of the toys. A wonderful idea, anyway: in fact, I can see plenty of parents shooing their children off to bed so they can have a play alone.
