Warner Brothers have released the first trailer for The LEGO Movie, set to hit theaters on February 7, 2014. The original 3D computer animated story follows the story of Emmet, a clean-cut LEGO mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as being the key to saving the world. Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) is drafted into a fellowship of strangers to stop an evil tyrant President Business (Will Ferrell) and his henchman Bad Cop (Liam Neeson) from achieving world domination. Does this have anti-capitalist undertones!?

Of course, Emmet is hilariously underprepared for such an adventure and calls upon his fellow travellers Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), an old mystic (Elizabeth Banks) Batman (Will Arnett), and a swaggering pirate (Nick Offerman) for help. 

It all looks pretty good fun and kids and families should have a whale of a time with this one. Warner executives are probably seeing dollars signs, and plenty of them.

Watch The LEGO Movie trailer:

Direction comes from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs) as does the screenplay. The movie will incorporate some of the most popular characters from the LEGO world, whilst also introducing several new characters. The LEGO Movie  - which will no doubt form a franchise - is produced by Sherlock Holmes' Dan Lin and The Departed's Roy Lee.
