Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – all in the same film? Made out of Lego? Throw in a wizard voiced by Morgan Freeman and you’ve guessed it; it’s The Lego Movie.
This eagerly awaited film is set for February 2014 release and from what the trailer and teasers provide, this looks like something rather special is in store. Of course making short, stop-motion films with one’s Lego mates isn’t anything we haven’t seen before (thanks to YouTube) albeit no-one has ever devoted a whole film to Lego – until now. This appears to be all major blockbusters mashed into one, except all the characters are in fact made up of little Lego bricks – how novel!
Considering this film has been in production since 2008, it has been a long time coming, even from the snippets we have already seen, it is evident how much time and skill went into producing such a film. With help from an all star cast including, Morgan Freeman, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Ferrell and Channing Tatum this computer-animated adventure is sure to get some laughs! With Lego kitties, construction workers and over-sized toothbrushes, The Lego Movie brings the ever popular toys to life, brick by brick. Brought to us by directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller who we know from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street this shouldn’t be short of humour, keeping children and adults alike entertained. A children’s film nonetheless, but not without some amusing one-liners (just from the trailers) and clever marketing ploys that will entice everyone to the cinema.
The wait is nearly over for this one and we shall leave you with the latest teaser from this hilarious feature. This extra special trailer intends to put the thousands of talented and dedicated professionals behind the animated feature film into the spotlight – just some of the 70,000 professionals who work in the UK film industry – in an effort to inspire audiences to respect and value official film, TV and video content.
