The first preview introduced us to our leading figurine, Emmet. And now these latest previews give us a new look at Wyldstyle, President Business, and Metal Beard, the last of which has one of the greatest names for a family-friendly character seen in recent years.
The first trailer launched way back in June, so needless to say, we’re definitely due another look at the movie, and the studio will deliver as promised later this week.
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.
Chris Pratt takes the lead as Emmet, and he’s joined by a fantastic voice cast, led by Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Alison Brie, and Nick Offerman.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street) are at the helm with a script they co-wrote, based on a story they wrote with Dan and Kevin Hageman (Hotel Transylvania).
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. Hands up, who’s excited?
