Ordinarily, toy brand + celeb voice = us falling asleep. But, it's Lego and we pretty much like everyone who is coming on board a lot, and the guys directing it are solid too. So, color us optimistic. And really, how can you not like these latest additions?

Ordinarily, toy brand + celeb voice = us falling asleep. But, it's Lego and we pretty much like everyone who is coming on board a lot, and the guys directing it are solid too. So, color us optimistic. And really, how can you not like these latest additions?

Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie are all joining "Lego: The Piece of Resistance." Set to be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("21 Jump Street") and Chris McKay ("Robot Chicken"), the animated movie centers on Emmett (Chris Pratt), a regular everyday little Lego figure who is mistaken as a MasterBuilder and suddenly becomes part of a group on a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing everything together. So who is who in this thing?

Let's run it down: Will Arnett is Batman (awesome), Morgan Freeman is Vitruvius, Ferrell is President Business (lol) and Emmett's antagonist, Neeson is his obviously named henchman Bad Cop, Offerman is a pirate (sweet) bent on revenge against President Business, while Brie works with Emmett and has a "powerful secret." Oh yeah, Elizabeth Banks is in this too, but her role is under wraps.

Production is underway and the movie hits on February 7, 2014. [Deadline]
