The Lego Movie Trailer!

By James Robert Shaw

The newest Lego Movie trailer is here from Warner Brothers and if one may say it’s looking good for 2014. One doesn’t have to be a builder of Lego to appreciate a good stop motion animated movie or a collector of it’s blocks and special sets.

From the trailer it appears many characters from the Lego universe will be in the film in either supporting roles or cameos.

 

In the film an ordinary Lego minifigure mistaken for a MasterBuilder is recruited to help stop an evil Lego tyrant from gluing the universe together.

The Lego Movie not only has a great cast in such names as Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks and Liam Neeson but they have experienced directors at the helm. Attached to the Lego Movie are the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) with Chris McKay (TVs Robot Chicken and Moral Orel) co-directing.
