Warner Bros. has moved up the release date of their CG animated LEGO movie from February 28th, 2014 to February 7th! That's three weeks early, so things must be moving along pretty smoothly. 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller wrote the script for the film and are also directing it.
The movie sounds like it will be a lot of fun, and I'm excited to see how it turns out! Do you have any thoughts on this LEGO movie being created?
Here's the synopsis:
The film, the first-ever full length theatrical 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. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as Emmet. Oscar winner Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Rises) and Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games), will star as two of Emmet’s fellow travelers: Vitruvius, an old mystic; and tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest. She also calls upon the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure voiced by Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, “30 Rock”), with whom she shares a history.
