Awesome ‘The LEGO Movie’ Trailer #2 Includes LEGO Superheroes & LEGO Presidents

Published 8 months ago by , Updated April 12th, 2014 at 3:12 am,

Chris Pratt will lead a ragtag group of aliens, genetically-engineered raccoons and talking trees (limited by vocabulary) into battle in Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy next year.

However, the Parks & Recreation fan-favorite will first join forces with LEGO Batman, LEGO Wonder Woman and other LEGO heroes in The LEGO Movie, an upcoming 3D animated feature co-written and co-directed by filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street), with Chris McKay (Robot Chicken) credited as the film’s third director for his work on the animation side of things.

A second trailer for LEGO Movie has dropped online and, like its predecessors, the footage is heavy on LEGO-based humor and cameos by characters like LEGO Abraham Lincoln, Ninja Turtles and many others. However, we also get some more information on the plot, which involves Emmet (Pratt) – a plain-as-toast, if more enthusiastic than normal, LEGO mini-figure – who is mistaken (?) for being a long-awaited warrior. Either way, Emmet must accept his new destiny and stop the evil President Business (Will Ferrell) from enacting his nefarious plan to ruin the LEGO universe and make it decidedly not awesome.

LEGO Movie appears to offer the wide range in jokes – pop culture references, meta-winks, LEGO-based physical comedy- that could make the animated feature an entertaining and appealing viewing experiences for kids, teens and legal-age moviegoers alike; that is, without just banking on the adults’ nostalgia for LEGOs. Indeed, much like Lord and Miller’s Cloudy 3D adaptation, it seems as though the LEGO Movie premise leaves room for some witty self-reflexive commentary, even amongst the nonstop comedy, action and LEGO puns.

Also helping is the talented voice cast for LEGO Movie, which (in addition to Pratt and Ferrell) includes Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Cobie Smulders, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Charlie Day and Liam Neeson as the “Bad Cop” personality of the LEGO Good Cop/Bad Cop. When it comes to the list of early-year releases in 2014, this definitely looks to be one of the better ones.

  1. Thank goodness I have a 3 year old. I wanna see this, but I can’t go watch a kid movie by myself.

    • Why not? I will. If the movie looks good, why let another’s opinion stop you?

      I didn’t want to see The Emperor’s New Groove but walked out of the cinema with a new favourite animated movie.

      If I can walk into a store and buy a LEGO videogame (LEGO Marvel Super Heroes releases here on November 15th, can’t wait) with my head held high then I can do the same with The LEGO Movie too.

      • It came out sooner here but I have to save it for Christmas D:

  2. Ah! So excited! This movie is going to be…you guessed it…AWESOME!

  3. this is raw. My goddaughter is going to love this. I already go her into ninjago and chima. those are two of my dirty little cartoons that I love but shouldn’t at the age of 33

    • got her into

  4. This…yes.

    Awesome.

  5. lego explosions look awesome!

  6. Awesomness.

  7. one word, wait for it…

    AWESOME!

    Seriously though, I want a double-decker couch o_O

    • I actually thought that was a good idea haha. My head may keep hitting the ceiling though.

  8. As close as a Wonder Woman movie Warner brothers will ever release

    Anyway, I didn’t have a childhood so this doesn’t interest me

    • Did you just appear into existence?

  9. I’m so excited for this movie. Legos were my childhood and I have no shame going to see this even if I’m 20 years old now.

  10. This is going to be Legend- wait for it, and I hope you’re not lactose intolerant because the second part of that word is -DARY! Legendary!

    • ^That was perfect

  11. An odd thought just occurred to me. For some reason, based on the tone of these trailers so far, it kinda reminds me of aspects of the Sponge Bob Square Pants movie (which I’ve been forced to watch at least once babysitting, and that’s far more than enough).

    I would say that the key difference, however, would be that this movie doesn’t seem like it’s gonna be a flaming pile of excrement as I believe the other one is.

  12. PEW PEW PEW PEW!

    Dang it.

    That was pretty funny.

    • LOL agree

  13. Morgan Freeman is God. How suprising.
