Remember that “Lego” movie? The one called, fittingly, “The Lego Movie“? The project isn’t due out in theaters until February 7, 2014, but the title logo has just been released. Though it doesn’t share much in the way of plot details, the image that’s debuted is a clever take on the building block toys that many played with in their youths.
Don’t think that this movie is going to be as simple as its title logo implies, though. “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller teamed up with “Robot Chicken’s” Chris McKay to bring this story to life, and it actually is described as a pretty intense fantasy adventure. Couple that with the fact that it has an amazing array of actors on board to voice characters and we’re definitely looking forward to this film.
As a refresher, “The Lego” movie features the voice talents of Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt, Will Arnett and Elizabeth Banks. In terms of the film’s plot, here’s how Lord described the movie to us last year.
“It is the story of basically a young man who doesn’t have a creative bone in his body and has to always build things from the instructions,” he said. “He’s an ’instructions worker.’ In the Lego city, they build buildings, and it turns out in this universe it’s illegal to build apart from the instructions,” Lord said. “So what he finds out is that he’s actually descendant from these like super creative Jedi-type people who are called ’Master Builders’ and he has been charged with saving the universe from being frozen together by an evil bad guy, so over the course of the movie he has to unlearn all of that lame-o, uncreative stuff and learn how to build without all of the instructions in order to save the universe.”
