Jack Black will be back in Kung Fu Panda 3
LEGO movie announced!
'LEGO: The Movie' has just received the Hollywood green light. Hoping for toy-based success in the mould of Transformers and Battleship, the new animation will be set in the world of the iconic yellow people and their plastic brick world.
Warner Bros have announced a 3D animation to be released on 28 February 2014.
The plot details are vague in the announcement, which reveals only 'some classic and some new characters from the LEGO universe'. Are there any known characters in that universe? As far as we're concerned, Indiana Jones and Luke Skywalker are the LEGO universe's best known characters following the hit video games series.
21 Jump Street and Cloudy with a Change of Meatballs helmers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will share directing duties. Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes) and Roy Lee (The Departed) are producing the film, which is already in production.
Following the success of a variety of toy franchises, Battleship and Transformers being the most notable, we're predicting an easy stroll to the bank for this one. GI Joe and Max Steel have also proven that Toy Story ain't the only successful toy story out there.
Lego fans around the world will be bricking it with excitement in the buildup to this release. Perhaps the most excited of all will be LEGO artisan Tyler Clites, who created the astonishing collection of LEGO movie characters below.
