The LEGO Movie – “Creating the Bricks”
Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, The LEGO ® Movie is an original animated film that follows the adventures of Emmet (voice of Chris Pratt), a rules-abiding, perfectly ordinary citizen who is mistakenly identified as “The Special,” the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. Drafted into a fellowship of strangers, Emmet embarks on an epic quest to stop the evil tyrant, Lord Business (voice of Will Ferrell), a journey of self-discovery that will require him to summon all of his previously untapped creativity and imagination. The voice cast also includes Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. The screenplay is by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, from a story by Dan Hageman & Kevin Hageman and Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, based on LEGO construction toys. The film is produced by Dan Lin and Roy Lee.
