The park is the star of a new 4D Lego movie showing exclusively at Legoland sites across the globe in 2016, but all may not be as it seems.
The short 3D film reunites the stars of The Lego Movie in a new story catching up with what happened to them after the hit animated feature film. In The Lego Movie 4D A New Adventure, Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny meet a shady new character called Risky Business, who plans to open a curious theme park bearing a suspicious resemblance to Legoland. The heroes must call on the Master Builder skills of a surprise ally to save the day. As the action unfolds on screen, audiences will be subjected to 4D effects such as wind, water and fog.
The film premiered on January 29 at Legoland Florida followed a week later by Legoland California, and will go on to be shown at all Legoland theme parks and Legoland Discovery Centers worldwide. Returning to voice the mini figure characters were actors Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle), Nick Offerman (MetalBeard), Charlie Day (Benny) and Alison Brie (Unikitty). Actor, writer and comedian Patton Oswalt lent his voice to the scheming Risky Business,
LA-based Pure Imagination Studios (Josh Wexler) created the 4D movie with input from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the writer-directors of the original Lego Movie, along with contributions from Rob Schrab, who is directing the sequel, due to be released in 2018.
