The first film is released on Friday and has a frankly incredible vocal-cast including Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Charlie Day, Channing Tatum, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. It features Emmet Brickowski (Pratt) as an every-man who discovers that he might be the savour of all lego-kind as he is mistaken for the Master Builder of the Lego Universe. He has to battle alongside Batman (Arnett), Metalbeard (Offerman) and Superman (Tatum) against Ferrell’s Lord Business.
Considering the first film took 3 years to build, it makes sense for Warner Bros to get an early start on the project. With directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s careers taking off (they also have 22 Jump Street coming out this year) they will want to ensure that they keep the duo on the project as much as possible.
