Warner Bros. has finally settled on a title: previously known as Lego: Piece of Resistance
, the 3D family film is now simply titled The Lego Movie
and a logo has been revealed along with a contest fans can compete.
Directed by Phil Lord
& Christopher Miller
, the follow-up to 21 Jump Street features the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie
and Morgan Freeman
The duo behind Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, Lord and Miller returned to the field of animation.
The Lego Movie hits theaters on February 7th, 2014.
Hit the jump to check out the hi-res version of the logo, and announcement for a new contest that will allow movie and Lego fans to create a 15-30 second video that, if selected, could be featured in the new film.
The fan-produced clips will relate to an exciting scene in the film, in which the citizens of the LEGO universe rally to prevent an unspeakable disaster. They do this by quickly disassembling the elements of their environments, brick by brick, and rebuilding them into fantastic and fun hybrid vehicles and tools—the stranger and more innovative, the better, like rocket/dragons or butterfly/speedboats—to take part in an epic battle.
Using only Lego bricks and non-licensed Lego minifigures, contestants will select a character and set their action sequence in one of their favorite Lego worlds, such as Lego City, Space, Pirates, Western, Vikings, Dino, Castle, and others. After building and recording their Lego designs, they will upload the video to YouTube, and bookmark it on the rebrick.com Building Challenge page, where it will be open for voting from the entire ReBrick membership. The 25 videos earning the most “Likes” will ultimately be reviewed for creativity, originality, theme and suitability for the film by a panel of judges, including Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, writers/directors of The Lego Movie.
And here’s the official synopsis:
The film, the first-ever full length theatrical LEGO movie, follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGOminifigure 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.
