The Lego Movie

As a huge Lego enthusiast, I was delighted when I saw the trailers for The Lego Movie a few months ago. I've collected Lego Minifigures for a few years and was delighted to see that the little plastic pieces of fun I can't help but buy were being made into a feature length movie! Check out the official trailer for The Lego Movie below...

The Lego Movie is about construction worker 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.

I won't give the game away, but there are only two real life humans who feature in this animated movie and one of them is a very famous Hollywood actor, who is perfectly suited to the movie. There are tons of cameo voiceovers in the movie, including Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum to name a few. The voice of C3PO from Star Wars is also voiced by the original C3PO, which is pretty cool!

The Lego Movie has a very catchy theme song, called 'Everything Is Awesome' by Tegan and Sara featuring The Lonely Island. Once you hear it, it gets stuck in your head for days! Tegan and Sara are playing at Boston Calling Music Festival in May, which I'm heading to. I really hope they play the song there! Check it out below, if you dare...

I can't wait for The Lego Movie to come out on DVD and no doubt will be watching it many times! There are lots of little adult jokes hidden in it and loads of cool stuff going on, on the screen, so I'm looking forward to watching it all again to take it all in.
