Everything is Awesome at Legoland Florida Resort

Even more in 2015?  Yes, even after building an entire resort and announcing a new land, the Legoland Florida Resort still has another trick up its sleeve.  The theme park has announced that it will be one of six Legoland parks and eleven Legoland Discovery Centers to premier a new 4D animated film based on The Lego Movie later this year.

The new movie will aim at entertaining families using a combination of film and in-theater effects, drawing from the star power of the mega-hit The Lego Movie.  "Using elements such as wind, water, smoke and special lighting effects, the larger-than-life experience brings the film’s main characters, Emmet and Wyldstyle, back together with their friends for another awesome adventure."

The film will be exclusive to the Legoland theme parks and Legoland Discovery Centers, and is a combined effort of Merlin Entertainments, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group on such a, dare I say, awesome, adventure,” says Merlin Entertainments Chief Executive Officer Nick Varney. “Emmet and Wyldstyle have become immensely popular at our theme parks and Discovery Centers across the globe and bringing this new 4D movie exclusively to our guests continues our Merlin philosophy of creating memorable family experiences.”

No official premier date has been set for the new movie, so stay tuned to each park for more information later in 2015.
