There Was Nearly A James Bond LEGO Game

Founder of Traveller’s Tale aka TT Games, Jon Burton, has an interesting YouTube channel called GameHut. This offers snippets of information about a number of the UK developers various games including their many LEGO® titles. A recent video has offered up some information and test animation of a trio of projects. A LEGO Indiana Jones was suggested long before one became a reality, but due to LEGO not having any products on sale based on the Lucasfilm movies, it was abandoned. That was until the much-loved fourth Indiana Jones film was released and TT Games created the first LEGO Indiana Jones game in just 7 months. Long before Warner Bros were on the scene, the LEGO games were first published by Eidos, who also published the Tomb Raider games. Lara Croft was animated as a LEGO Minifigure, but instead of a full LEGO Tomb Raider game, it was suggested that Tomb Raider could crossover with Indiana Jones, something Lucasfilm were extremely unhappy with. However the most intersting thing from the video, is that a LEGO James Bond game was in the works. The 007 game license holder, Activision were keen, so were the right owners of James Bond, even LEGO gave it the go ahead. But with the advent of Casino Royale and a darker tone for the franchise, the game was abandoned. Of course a number of years later, LEGO Bond would become a reality with the release of the LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 set. Check out the video below.
