Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the directing duo behind Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, are at the helm for their second animated feature, with a script they co-wrote, based on a story they wrote with Dan and Kevin Hageman (Hotel Transylvania).
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.
The Lego Movie will be released in the US on February 7th, 2014, with its UK release date coming a week later in time for Valentine’s Day on 14th February. Be sure to come back for the full trailer when it lands in three days’ time.
