The LEGO Movie

Despite the fact that the film doesn't hit theaters until Friday, Warner Bros. is already so confident in The LEGO Movie that the studio has already commissioned a writer to script a sequel. That's not a guarantee that it will get made until the actual box office receipts come in, but the film is tracking very well. In the meantime, why not check out how this stunningly animated film was made, complete with a mix of CG animation and practical stop-motion animation using real LEGO pieces. Despite the seemingly limited range of the LEGO minifig faces, Chris Pratt says the facial expressions are pretty dead on. Watch below!

Here's the cool featurette on Phil Lord & Chris Miller's The LEGO Movie from Hollywood Streams:

The LEGO Movie is a 3D animated film written and directed by Phil Lord and Christopher 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 Warner Bros. sends to theaters on February 7th, 2014.

Stop-motion animation bewilders the mind and confounds logic.

To bad this was all done in AutoDesk Maya, it's 3D animation... not stop motion, they just showed you, at time code 1;32 the animator is using Maya to make the entire movie...

Stop motion movie like this would take 10 years to make sorry, it would be amazing if it was though..

This movie is crazy good. It really does look like stop motion and I was totally convinced it was until I saw this video. Very good job Animators!
