Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, and other stars lend their voices for the film 'The LEGO Movie.' Elizabeth Banks is also starring in the new movie 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.'
However, the Parks & Recreation fan-favorite will first join forces with LEGO Batman, LEGO Wonder Woman and other LEGO heroes in The LEGO Movie, an upcoming 3D animated feature co-written and co-directed by filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street), with Chris McKay (Robot Chicken) credited as the film’s third director for his work on the animation side of things.
A second trailer for LEGO Movie has dropped online and, like its predecessors, the footage is heavy on LEGO-based humor and cameos by characters like LEGO Abraham Lincoln, Ninja Turtles and many others. However, we also get some more information on the plot, which involves Emmet (Pratt) – a plain-as-toast, if more enthusiastic than normal, LEGO mini-figure – who is mistaken (?) for being a long-awaited warrior. Either way, Emmet must accept his new destiny and stop the evil President Business (Will Ferrell) from enacting his nefarious plan to ruin the LEGO universe and make it decidedly not awesome.
