The LEGO Movie – Everything is Awesome Edition is filled with plenty of LEGO fun and some pretty amazing bonuses for LEGO lovers. There is a Blu-ray disc, a DVD, UltraViolet Digital download (to watch the movie on portable devices), a 3D disc, a 3D collectible card of Emmet, and a minifigure of Vitruvius, and the pieces to put together your own Emmet.
The movie stars the loveable – well, mostly loveable, LEGO characters who find themselves in a die-hard situation. Emmet is an ordinary construction worker longing for friends and companionship. He follows the rules to the letter. Then one day he accidentally meets Wyldstyle who mistakes him for the “Special.” According to a prophecy, an extraordinary person, aka the Special, would appear to save the LEGO universe. In this dire time when the evil Lord Business is taking over the LEGO universe, the Special is the one called on to save everything and everyone.
Emmet finds himself in a strange and difficult situation, knowing the fate of the universe rests on him. Along with his friends, they travel through several LEGO worlds to stop the evil tyrant. The “Piece of Resistance” necessary to put an end to the maniacal ways of Lord Business.
Traveling through the old west, under water, and other adventurous settings, the gang faces one dilemma after another. Some of the LEGO characters that appear are Superman, Wonder Woman, C-3PO, Lando, Han Solo, Abraham Lincoln, The Green Lantern, Shaquille O’Neal, and other recognizable characters. This element of the movie adds to the fun of the story. Unikitty is a character both young and old will enjoy. This cute little combination of kitty and unicorn will steal your heart. The lesson of the film is if you believe you can be special, you can.
Bonus features look at the production of the film with the directors, storyboard artists, voice talents, and animators. There is also an interesting visit to the LEGO headquarters in Denmark. Yes, for those who don’t know, LEGO is a product of Denmark where the first LEGO Land is and where the phenomenon began. There are numerous other bonus features that will entertain LEGO lovers.
Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Forte, Morgan Freeman, Jonah Hill, Liam Neeson, Shaquille O’Neal, Channing Tatum, Billy Dee Williams, and many others lend their voices to this fun and clever film.
Besides this Everything is Awesome Edition, the movie is also available in a DVD + UltraViolet pack as well as a Blu-ray + DVD + UltraViolet combo pack. LEGO lovers should opt for the Everything is Awesome Edition for the additional collectible figure and the 3D picture of Emmet, suggested for ages 6+ due to the choking hazard of the small pieces in the additional 6-piece Emmet figure.
The LEGO Movie is rated PG for mild action and rude humor.
