NEW 4D MOVIE GETS A (LEGO®) CELEBRITY PREMIERE AT THE LEGOLAND® WINDSOR RESORT’S FAMOUS MINILAND


Wednesday 2 March. Ahead of this weekend’s celebrity premiere of the newest installment of "The LEGO® Movie 4D A New Adventure” - an exclusive 4D animation at the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort – the Resort’s Model Makers decided to imagine the event in LEGO® with a host of A-list ‘brick’ attendees from the ‘Jolie-Bricks’ to the ‘Brick Beckhams’, and of course, the stars themselves Emmet, Wyldstyle, MetalBeard, UniKitty and Benny.

The scene, created in minute detail from 25,000 individual bricks, is in Leicester Square in the Resort’s world famous Miniland and features all you would expect at a star-studded movie premiere. Paps are poised to snap the celebrity audience with fans lined up to grab autographs, security cordons are in place and of course a LEGO red carpet is laid out at the entrance to the cinema. Walking the carpet are Elton John and David Furnish with their sons, Zachary and Elijah, Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster with Alastair and Aiden and the entire Beckham brood. Also en-masse are the Jolie-Pitts and flying in specially for the event are Kim, Kanye and North (in a cute pink LEGO tutu), arriving with baby Saint in his pram.

The Model Makers also set up an outdoor screening of “The LEGO® Movie 4D A New Adventure” for the Minilander movie stars and their celebrity guests. “The LEGO® Movie” stars ‘arrived’ in bespoke LEGO limousines before loading up with popcorn and taking their LEGO seats in front of a miniature screen complete with a red velvet curtain.

"The LEGO® Movie 4D A New Adventure” will premiere to an audience of celebrity guests, VIPs and film critics at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort on Saturday 5 March and will be screened at the attraction when it reopens for 2016 on 11 March. The 12.5 minute animation re-unites the characters from the original movie (from Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and The LEGO® Group) at the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, in an entirely new plot mixed with amazing 4D effects.
