The LEGO Movie 4D has arrived at LEGOLAND Florida Resort near Orlando.
LEGO fans everywhere who are anticipating the release of a sequel to The LEGO Movie can breathe a sigh of relief. LEGOLAND® Florida Resort has premiered a "mini-figure" sequel, THE LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure, during a recent red carpet event, complete with blasts of confetti and TV celebs. The theatrical attraction adds more kid-friendly things to do at Orlando's area theme parks.
The 12-and-a-half-minute experience reunites Emmet and friends in an all-new short story that combines 3D animation with interactive "4D" effects, including wind, water and fog. In addition, a fun interactive game gets the audience screaming and pointing at the large screen during a key point in the storyline.
Some of the original cast lends their voice to the movie, but Will Ferrell's absence is called out humorously, noting the price tag being too high for his return. A new evil mastermind, "Risky Business," is introduced in this movie and played by comedian/actor Patton Oswalt.
You also won't hear the earworm song, "Everything is Awesome," from the original movie, but the new 4D version does a playful take on the catchy tune made popular in blockbuster.
TV stars (Aubrey Anderson-Emmos of ABC TV's Modern Family, Joey Bragg of Disney Channel's Liv and Maddie, and Isabella Moner of Nickelodeon's 100 Things to Do Before High School) along with YouTubers (The Eh Bee Family and Family Fun Pack) attended the event and walked the red carpet after the premiere.
The biggest reactions came during the participation part of the movie, where the audience started screaming and pointing at the large screen and "helped" Wyldstyle find the right shaped LEGO to overcome a problem.
On Saturday and Sundays in February, guests can be their own master builders during the new LEGO Movie 4D Weekends featuring special LEGO building opportunities, meet-and-greets with the movie characters, and a Brick-tastic Fireworks Finale.
