The Lego Movie 4D A New Adventure Opening at Legoland Parks in 2016

Debuting at the Legoland Florida Resort in January of 2016, and soon after at the Legoland California Resort on February 6th, will be an all new 4D adventure film themed to the popular Lego Movie.

The Lego Movie 4D A New Adventure was previously hinted about by the chain of parks, operated by Merlin Entertainments, but now new details have been made available.  The film is being created in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and Lego Systems A/S, and will eventually premier at all the Legoland Parks around the globe and the Legoland Discovery Centers as well.

The film will follow a new journey for the characters of The Lego Movie, including Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, Benny and MetalBear.  A new villain character, voiced by Patton Oswalt and named Risky Business, will be added to the series.  The attraction is being directed by Rob Schrab, who is also directing the squeal to The Lego Movie in 2018, and will also feature many of the original voice actors from the feature film like Elizabeth Banks and Nick Offerman.

The plot finds the characters having received a "mysterious invitation leading them to a new theme park where all of the rides are based on the characters’ adventures in “The Lego Movie.” But not all is as it seems as the heroes are once again thrust into the middle of an evil secret plot, only this time, it will be up to the audience to use their Master Builder skills to help save them!"

The 4D attraction will feature special effects such as smoke, water, wind and lighting to create a "larger-than-life" experience for guests.  In a sense the film will also bridge the gap between the first Lego Movie and the next, still to come.
