“The Lego Movie” tells the story of Lego minifigure Emmet (voice of Chris Pratt) as he and his team, Wyldstyle (voice of Elizabeth Banks), Vitruvius (voice of Morgan Freeman) and Batman (voice of Will Arnett), go on an adventure to save the Lego World from Lord Business (voice of Will Ferrell). During this epic quest, Emmet goes from ordinary to an extraordinary Lego minifigure.
