"Everything is awesome!" goes the official theme song to "The Lego Movie," and while critics will eventually decide if that's actually the case, it's had to deny that spirit that's powering the Warner Bros. flick. Even though the entire movie is built around one of the most popular toys of all time, there's a weird innocent sweetness permeating from "The Lego Movie," which is certainly a nice change from the usual crass commercialism these kinds of movies project.

The Lego Movie

"Everything is awesome!" goes the official theme song to "The Lego Movie," and while critics will eventually decide if that's actually the case, it's hard to deny that spirit that's powering the Warner Bros. flick. Even though the entire movie is built around one of the most popular toys of all time, there's a weird innocent sweetness permeating from "The Lego Movie," which is certainly a nice change from the usual crass commercialism these kinds of movies project.

Indeed, the voice cast is filled with people we like — Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Will Ferrell — and the concept is pretty smart, with the adventure taking a regular Lego on an adventure through all the Lego lands including Pirates Cove, Knights Club, Vikings Landing and Cloud Cuckoo Land. The brand doesn't seem too precious to not make jokes at its own expense, so yeah, this really could be the movie we all dreamed about as kids. Certainly, the nine clips and over 30 images recently dropped the movie are pretty inventive stuff.

"The Lego Movie" connects on February 7th. Check out the clips and a featurette below, with the images on the following pages.
