‘The LEGO Movie’ Contest: Find Out How Your LEGO Creation Can Appear in the Upcoming Film!
We're getting really excited for the upcoming 'LEGO Movie,' and we've got all the details on this cool new contest where your very own LEGO video and design can be seen in the film!
'The Lego Movie' is currently in production and it's brimming with talent: Phil Lord and Chris Miller ('21 Jump Street') are directing the animated adventure, which stars Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Elizabeth Banks, Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Alison Brie, Morgan Freeman, and Will Arnett.
And how cool would it be to see your very own creation involved with all of that talent?! Pretty awesome, right? Here's what you need to do:
Starting on March 25, fans can go on to Rebrick.com and create a 15-30 second video based on the story of the film. The plot follows Emmet, an ordinary LEGO person who is mistaken for the legendary MasterBuilder and is forced to join a quest to stop an evil tyrant who wants to glue the LEGO universe together. And we all know that gluing LEGOs is a really horrible and mean thing to do.
The clips created by fans relate to an exciting sequence in the film, where the citizens of LEGO band together to stop this bad guy from carrying out his evil plan, and they do so by taking apart their entire universe, brick by brick, and reconstructing the pieces into vehicles and tools to help them fight.
Entrants in the contest will use LEGOs and non-licensed LEGO mini-figures (this means no 'Star Wars' or 'Harry Potter' figures, guys) to set an action sequence in any one of the LEGO set worlds, like Space, Pirates, Vikings, etc. It's up to you! Once the video is completed, you'll need to upload it to YouTube and bookmark it on the special ReBrick Building Challenge Page, where other ReBrick members will vote on the best video.
The grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to Warner Bros. studio in Burbank, California where they'll get a VIP tour, a meeting with the directors and participation with them in a LEGO build, an official LEGO film camera, and souvenirs from the set. The winning video may also be used in the final cut of the movie. Second and third place winners, as well as bi-weekly winners, will also be chosen and awarded various prizes, including a studio tour, merchandise from the movie, or a $200 gift card for the studio's online store.
