The LEGO Movie – coming to theatres soon!

by admin on June 21, 2013

in LEGO Movie

You may or may not know, but there is a full-length LEGO movie in the making, called simply as The LEGO Movie (in case anyone had any doubts of what the movie is about). Yep, you heard that right; you will be able to follow the adventures of your little plastic friends on the big screen! The LEGO Movie will be released on the 14th of February, 2014. Below is the official announcement and trailer. 🙂

The LEGO Movie Poster

The LEGO Movie follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. Emmet (Chris Pratt) is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which he is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. 🙄

The LEGO Movie Logo

Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie join Chris Pratt to form the cast of the first-ever full-length theatrical LEGO movie, the greatest movie ever assembled, which is set to hit cinemas in 14th February 2014. Screenplay by: Dan Hageman, Kevin Hageman, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Directed by: Phil Lord, Chris Miller Chris McKay. Produced by: Doug Davison, Stephen Gilchrist, Igor Khait, Roy Lee, Dan Lin, John Powers Middleton, Seanne Wehrenfennig, Jill Wilfert. Below is the official trailer. Enjoy!

So what do you think of The LEGO Movie? Are you excited? How do you like the story-line? I also fully expect that there will be LEGO sets tied in with the movie. Does that sounds like a reasonable prediction? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

In the rules for the contest to get your brickfilm included in the movie there were some pretty strict restrictions, such as no elements that are recognizable as Star Wars or Harry Potter. I doubt that very many of the licensed themes will make it into this movie.

It’s nice that they are able to include at least some of the licensed sets, since those have been a big part of Lego’s offerings in the recent years. Though they can’t possibly have enough time to be inclusive of all the major Lego themes that have existed. Reminds me a little of the Clutch Powers movie, which also found a way to crossover between different themes.

“Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie join Chris Pratt”… WOW!! This is a STAR STUDDED Line-up… I can’t believe they got this many A lister actors to voice act. The trailer looks GREAT!!! I’m more excited about this movie than anything DC is putting out LOL. It looks so funny and exciting, I love the laser shooting and flying scenes. I hope it is not rated G, and that it gets a PG rating. I wish I could see what Will Farrel’s President Business minifigure looks like, and I definitely want the Elizabeth Banks and Morgan Freeman minifigures 😀 so I hope there are toys attached to teh movie. Also oh man… The Will Arnett Batman is going to be HILLARIOUS!!! I love Will Arnette, he’s always a really funny jerk LOL… I showed teh trailer to my wife and she was like “noooo, I don’t wanna watch that”, thena fterwards she said “wow, that was waaaay better than I expected, let’s watch it” LOL

Reply

Håkan June 21, 2013 at 7:03 PM

I can’t see how this movie would be PG, neither that it would gain anything significant in that case. Remember that the core product is from 4 years and up, and you don’t want to risk offending the soccer moms.

Reply

Micho June 21, 2013 at 11:30 AM

Anyone else notice that there are no Marvel Superheroes in the movie??? That’s because the studio producing the movie is Warner Brothers which owns DC… It would have been nice to have some crossovers, but I’m happy with the Turtles being on a same movie with Batman :-D… BOSS!!!

Thanks for posting this trailer, Brickblogger. AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE MUST SEE IT! 😛 One little error I noticed, though, was that you said it was to be released on Feb. 14. While this was the initial release date, the new release date is Feb. 7. 😉

yeah, you might want to fix that. I did some research the other day for a post on my blog and it was Feb. 7th for the US (other countries may vary)

Reply

admin June 21, 2013 at 4:57 PM

I actually got the original press-release directly, which states the 14th as the release date. So I rather stay with that. I’m sure this is not going to be the first time the release date will change. 😉

The movie Lego The Adventures Of Clutch Powers is another Lego movie and it’s such a good movie! I’ve watched it over 100 times!

Yea,i’ve heard of that. I’m still thinking about Henri and Edmond! That was hilarious! Can’t wait to watch this LEGO Movie though! :mrgreen:

Reply

Fikko3107 June 21, 2013 at 12:05 PM

Well, I’m quite hopeful that this won’t end up as an over-glorified advertisement as The Adventures of Clutch Powers did. I also like the fact that it is animated to look like stop-motion, and thus the movements are very natural. I like the way that some bricks appear to be used, with fingerprints on the bricks when seen in sunlight, and the worn-out look of the Classic Blue Spaceman. I wonder how well Will Ferrel and Liam Neeson will play as antagonists…It also seems the movie is made to appeal to both children, casual LEGO fans and hardcore LEGO fans.

Reply

admin June 21, 2013 at 12:59 PM

And did you see that the spaceguy has a helmet with a broken chin-strap? I thought that was just way too funny… and sweet. It’s a small detail that probably only older LEGO fans would catch and understand, but I thought it was a touching reference to LEGO’s history. 🙂

Reply

Fluttersquee June 22, 2013 at 12:07 AM

I understood COMEPLETELY.

ANYWAY, It will also appeal to Collecters like me dont forget them

Someone needs to add Sackbots in this 🙁

Or the Mafia will find you and MESS YOU UP LEGO.

Fikko, was that you who just asked on the LEGO answers website about downloading non-flash videos? I can help you with that. I would have answered it there but a mod closed the question. Anyway, if you use Firefox, there is a an add-on called Flash Video Downloader – YouTube Downloader 3.8.7. (Just search for it under the add-ons section.) It will download any kind of videos, including the ones you couldn’t. 😉

Reply

Fikko3107 June 21, 2013 at 7:59 PM

Oh yeah, it was me, thanks, but it’s not the flash I can’t download…it’s the “LEGO Movie Player” whatever that is. If the one you say works, I wouldn’t have tried it, since it has the words “YouTube” in it, which means it works solely for YouTube. The thing is, I’ll be going away from my preciousss laptop for the next 5 days, so if you could give it a test to see if it works on the LEGO Club! LEGO Friends and LEGO Star Wars websites it will be great. I’ll try to keep updated with my mobile, but I’m not sure how much coverage I’ll be getting…

By the way, back on topic, LEGO is really emphasizing the stop-motion feel to the movie. Every laserbeam in that movie, the puff of clouds the green ninja appeared in and all other special effects we have seen and will see seems to be composed out of LEGO pieces. This gives the illusion that it is a Stop-motion, except for the fact it’s clearly CGI, since even the most dilligent, detailed, reputable LEGO stop-motion makers uses computer generated beams. Here, all of the beams looks like lightsaber blades! And in those scenes above, with all that crossfire, it would be hell if it really was stop-motion!

admin June 21, 2013 at 8:08 PM

Fikko, the Firefox video-downloader does work on all videos. Not just YouTube. They just recently added that to their name – probably so people who are looking to downoad YouTube videos can find it. But it works on all other video formats. Once you install it (takes a few seconds), a simple arrow will be added to your Firefox menu bar. The arrow will turn blue when you are on a page with a video. You just hit the arrow and download will begin. It is extremely easy to use. One of our French readers told me about it about a year ago and I have been using it ever since. And yes, it works on LEGO’s website, the LEGO Club website, etc. 🙂

Reply

Fikko3107 June 21, 2013 at 11:30 PM

Woohoo! It’s worth a shot. I’ll try it when I get home. Does it really work with Club,Friends AND Star Wars?

Reply

admin June 22, 2013 at 4:03 PM

Fikko, it definitely works on Star Wars because I just downloaded some from the starwars.lego.com micro-site. I haven’t tried Friends, but I might do that too before you get back, just to make sure. I have also downloaded some on the Club site about a month ago. Basically if you go to a site where there is a video and the blue arrow lights up it means the download should work. 😉

I wonder what he’s going to act like! or if the green ninja will be in the shadows! I bet batman will be one of the best characters in the movie!
