Official Teaser Trailer For The LEGO Movie (Insert Building Pun Here)

Postby Staff » Tue Jun 18, 2013 4:48 pm





Update: Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the movie's theatrical release date is set for February 7th, 2014.

I've been curious about how The LEGO Movie would be done since it was announced. I'll admit that this caught me off guard... in a good way. Drink it in and let me know what you think. I need to go watch it again...

Oh man, this looks amazing!!! I LOVE the animation approach that they've taken with this (i.e., making it look like a traditional stop-motion LEGO movie). Can't wait for next year!

Why does the music sound like "Take On Me"?

My guess would be ... because it is?

I really like the look of this and it may be pretty fun.

Looks like fun! I agree, the "stop-motion look" of the animation really appeals to me!

This is great! Excellent attention to detail. At 0:42 you see "80s something space guy" helmet is broken at the middle jaw. Can't tell you how many of those helmets were broken at the same spot when I was a kid.

Would be cool, but unlikely considering this is a Warner Bros film and all the licensed characters shown in the trailer are associated with/owned by Warner Bros and Marvel and Star Wars are owned by Disney. But, being Warner Bros, that does bring possibilities of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings characters. I definitely think the focus will be around some original characters though, that way LEGO can market them in sets (and I do recall reading that there are plans to release sets based off this movie).

Also, in that auditorium area, a lot of the characters present were CMF, but there was also a LEGO Lincoln! Hints at a new CMF?

But I don't think Warner Bros owns the rights to Ninja Turtles, do they?
Either way I'm still seeing this movie, it's weird how a kids animated film all of a sudden became one of my most anticipated. Seeing the style they approached and humor gives it that feel as if I'm a child again. I'll make sure to take my little brother, because who doesn't want to see a movie entirely out of Lego with many cameos here and there. It actually looks like the Lego Wreck-it-Ralph. :P

Looks pretty good. I hope they throw in some Star Wars stuff. Looks like a decent cast too.

I would think that they could swing the approval to include Star Wars and any other licensed minifigs Lego has made, it's just not likely that they'd appear in any sets we might get from this. Honestly though, I hope every minifig ever is included somewhere. Or at least one from every faction within each theme.

Does the female minifig hair that is seen in the Youtube cover image exist already? I want it. Now. It's like the hair on the female collectible minifig skate boarder, but with a Japanese twist to it. I love it.

It's because Pitbull ripped off that catchy little melody from A-ha's song.

I guess I'm one of the few who would rather have animation instead of stop motion.

I don't think it actually IS stop motion, just computer animation made to LOOK like stop motion.

Anyway, anyone else imagine that we might see a Collectible minifig series made up entirely of minifigs created for this film?

I couldn't agree more. It definitely feels very Lego-y. This is going to be great fun for lego fans.
