After all the buzz, THE LEGO MOVIE finally has a new trailer. I really like the fact that, even though is made with CGI, it looks like those fan made stop-motion shorts we usually see online recreating scenes from famous films or TV shows. I also think the naive almost “silly” tone is perfect for it, and couldn’t help but smile every time I recognized any Lego figure I owned as a kid.
Here’s the synopsis:
“”The LEGO® Movie,” the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, opens in theaters February 7, 2014. It stars the vocal talents of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.
The original 3D computer animated story 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.”
