What To Expect From The Upcoming Lego: The Piece of Resistance

Given all the attention that some of the more famous toy brands have received from Hollywood recently, you would think that LEGO would get some notice of its own. After all, LEGO is one of the most popular toys around, a status it has enjoyed for many generations. With the upcoming release of LEGO: The Piece of Resistance, this oversight is about to be rectified, and LEGO will finally make its big screen debut.

How LEGO has made the transition to cinema is a worthwhile take in itself. In recent years, a number of short “brick films” have begun to appear online utilizing LEGO toys as main characters. Many of these were fan remakes of popular Hollywood films, with Star Wars being one of the most popular examples. These films were typically done as “stop motion” animation and the results–although often crude–were nonetheless quite entertaining. With the huge success of these films, it was obvious that the time was ripe to take things to a whole other level, and the seeds that would eventually grow into LEGO: The Piece of Resistance were sown.

The film's plot revolves around a simple Lego mini-figure named Emmett, who due to a case of mistaken identity was erroneously thought to be the legendary hero Master Builder. Due to this error, our reluctant hero is enlisted on a mission to foil the plans of an evil tyrant who is intent on gluing the universe together. A mix of live-action and CGI animation, LEGO: The Piece of Resistance is scheduled for a February 2014 debut.

In addition to its iconic characters, there are a few things that make the upcoming release of LEGO: The Piece of Resistance such a noteworthy cinematic event. The LEGO franchise isn't a stranger to Batman or other superheroes for that matter, and the company has achieved considerable acclaim for a variety of themed toys and video games that incorporated familiar superheroes and even utilized them as central characters. Some of the company’s more successful superhero-themed titles include The Batcave, Catwoman Catcycle City Chase, and Batwing Battle over Gotham City. LEGO also released the Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes video game, which further cemented its claim to producing superhero based titles.

All that aside, what makes LEGO: The Piece of Resistance so special is that it will be the first time that the Batman and Superman will share the same screen together in a major Hollywood feature release. This astounding and potentially explosive pair-up was reported by Variety magazine, and it was already announced that Batman would be voiced by Will Arnett, who is moist famous for his role on TV’s Arrested Development. It is yet uncertain as to who will voice Superman in the movie, but talks are currently underway with Channing Tatum. Emmett himself will be voiced by Parks and Recreation’s Chris Pratt.

An even more interesting development is the announcement made by DC Entertainment of the “expanded relationship” with LEGO. Announced at the last Comic-Con, this essentially gave LEGO access to the universe of DC Comics characters.
