If you haven’t heard, a 3D LEGO movie is heading to a theater near you very soon! On top of that is was just announced that some big stars have signed on to the film as voice actors including Will Ferrell, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie. Here’s the official plot synopsis for the Warner Bros. film.
“The film, the first-ever full length theatrical LEGO movie, 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 (Moneyball) stars as Emmet. Oscar winner Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Rises) and Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games), will star as two of Emmet’s fellow travelers: Vitruvius, an old mystic; and tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest. She also calls upon the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure voiced by Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, “30 Rock”), with whom she shares a history.”
It has also been rumored that Superman will make an appearance in the film and may be voiced by, wait for it, CHANNING TATUM!! I am so there! Do you think the folks at LEGO / Warner Bros. can recreate a scene from Magic Mike?…no not appropriate?
