Official 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.
There’s a chance I may be too excited for this movie, but don’t care, I’m really, really thrilled. Legos were a large part of my childhood. I remember spending hours building with Legos (hell, I still do!), playing Lego Island on my computer, and Lego Racers on the N64. The stop-motion stuff on YouTube is pretty cool, but now we get a full fledged movie.
The first trailer sold me on the concept, but this latest trailer solidified by excitement. Even if this wasn’t a movie about Legos, the voice cast alone is top-notch and worth going to see. This trailer has some very memorable quotes and hopefully the dialog is like this throughout the entire film. The idea of one person chosen to save everything is nothing new, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be interesting, especially with all the different characters helping along the way.
The Lego Movie hits theaters February 4, 2014 and stars the voice talents of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett, Will Ferrell, and Morgan Freeman.
