Lego movie incoming?

Dave did a little weird happy dance when I told him about this rumor.  He really is a dork.  Apparently Warner Bros wants to make a CGI animated movie based on Lego toys.

I’m torn on this.  On the one hand, kids of all ages and dorks like Dave will probably enjoy it quite a bit.  On the other hand, Lego has toys, video games, t-shirts, telephones, keyboards, and pretty much anything else you can use to fleece your fan base.  They are effectively the Kiss of the toy world.  Do they really need to make a movie?

I also kind of expect the lengths they will go to to include every aspect of the Lego universe will get annoying after a while.  Also, will this movie be about Lego toys that run around like Toy Story, or will it be a world adventure where all the characters happen to be Legos?  In other words, is it going to be derivative or just lame?

Dave is threatening to throw stuff at me so I will wrap it up quick.  This image from Dave’s Starwars trilogy t shirts was the best I could find for a Lego image.  You would think he would stock more Lego stuff given he has been collecting them since he was three and will talk about his collection forever at the drop of a hat.

    I’m going to withhold my comments on this post except to say that I think this movie will be awesome. When you are a fan boy the more merchandise they come out with the happier you get.
