The Lego Movie is a film which combines the fun of playing with friends with the storytelling of a true story, the director of The Lego Batman Movie, Andrew Stanton, said in a statement.
The Lego series has been successful at telling stories about kids and young adults who want to be part of something bigger than themselves, and this film fits that bill, he said.
The film is a celebration of young people who are motivated by a passion for learning and play, Stanton said.
“The Lego Batman franchise is a staple of my childhood, and as the director, I feel incredibly privileged to be a part of this extraordinary creative team.”
The Lego series, which has sold more than 5 billion bricks worldwide, follows the adventures of the highly popular Lego bricks, a multibillion-dollar global phenomenon.
The original series debuted in 2008, with the second installment, The Great War, released in 2019.
