'The LEGO Movie' Gets Awesome Featurette Amidst Awards Buzz
There's no doubt that The LEGO Movie is awesome. It made Jeremy's Top 10 Films of 2014, my own list of favorite films, and countless other year-end lists of the best films of the year. Last night the film won the New York Film Critics award for Best Animated Feature, it's up for a Golden Globe, the PGA Award for animated films, tons of other animation awards, and it will likely get an Oscar nomination too. And so, Warner Bros. has just put out an awesome new featurette showing off just how this magical flick came together, with plenty of insight from directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller, the latter of whom brought in his own LEGO spaceman figure as the model for Benny in the movie. Watch below!
Here's the cool new featurette "Creating the Bricks" for The LEGO Movie from Warner Bros. Pictures:
The LEGO Movie is an animated film that is written and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The film follows Emmet, a completely ordinary, rules-following, 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, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Morgan Freeman all lend their voices to the film that Warner Bros. has out right now on Blu-Ray & DVD.
