LEGO Movie Officially Announced
Everyone’s favorite plastic building block is headed to the big screen! There’s been talk of a feature-length film centered around LEGO toys for a few years and now according to Variety, Warner Bros. is moving forward with the project for 2014. The article says the film will be a mix of live action and animation, presumably with the LEGO component (characters?) being animated. Given Hollywood’s track record with live action/animation hybrids of this nature (see: Alvin and the Chipmunks, Yogi Bear, The Smurfs), it’s hard to be optimistic about the project. However, it is early so harsh judgement may end up being unwarranted. Let’s just hope the creative forces “Respect the Brick” and avoid devolving into a string of jokes involving lower intestinal function.
