He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers — including an old mystic (voiced by Morgan Freeman) and LEGO Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) — on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together — a journey for which Emmett is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. Now the fate of the world is in his tiny yellow hands. Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Banks and more also provide voices in this family adventure from the filmmakers behind Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Incorporating some of the LEGO world’s most popular figures, while introducing several new characters, experience the one-of-a-kind LEGO world as never seen before in The Lego Movie. Prepare yourself for…the greatest movie ever assembled!
