First trailer for The Lego Movie: watch now

The ubiquitous toy blocks get their own film

The Lego Movie - an original film set within the LEGO universe - has gone and released a first trailer online.

Chris Pratt (the Parks And Recreation star who’s set to go stellar with Guardians Of The Galaxy) leads an eclectic voice cast that also includes Alison Brie, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Banks and Will Arnett.

Not a huge amount is known about the plot right now, although we do know that LEGO man Emmet (Pratt) stumbles upon a conspiracy that could destroy the block-y fabric of his world. Oh, and Arnett’s voicing Batman!

Check out The Lego Movie trailer below:

There's a wonderful stop-motion quality to the animation, and a host of notable cameos from LEGO licences past. Looks like the skewering of Batman is going to be a lot of fun... Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were behind Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, so you can expect belly-laughs along with inventive sight gags.

The Lego Movie opens in the UK on 14 February 2014 after opening in the US on 7 February 2014.

      OMG - YES!!!! :) So looking forward to this, my fav bit is the little blue astronaut (from the 80's) I've still got a couple of those from when I was a kid and Will Arnet as Batman - LMFAO :-D

      Two things I love about this... Firstly, the mock stop motion. Secondly, that Batman voice – it sounds so much like Conroy's!

      i bet all those franchises/property didn't realise Lego was going to use the rights to make a film with pretty much everyone's favourite characters together.
