Actors Will Arnett and Chris Pratt have signed on for the upcoming Lego movie.
Pratt will be the voice of the lead character in the upcoming CGI animated feature and Arnett will lend his voice to a Lego version of Batman.
The project takes place in an animated Lego world but does have live-action components. The studio and the producers, Roy Lee and Dan Lin, are working with Australian animation house Animal Logic on the CGI.
According to the studio, Pratt is voicing Emmet, “an ordinary, law-abiding, rules-following, perfectly average Lego mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary MasterBuilder. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.”
While the movie will have its own cast and characters, it also will feature several cameos of known characters that are already well-established in the Lego brand.
