Over on Screenscrush, Legendary Dad found out there is a contest where the winner will have a chance for their Lego Creation to appear in the animated move.
Starting on March 25th, folks can go to Rebrick.com to create a 15 – 30 second video based on the plot. The movie follows Emmet, an ordinary LEGO person who is mistaken for the legendary MasterBuilder and is forced to join a quest to stop an evil tyrant who wants to glue the LEGO universe together. And we all know that gluing LEGOs is a really horrible and mean thing to do
What do you have to do?
The clips created by fans relate to an exciting sequence in the film, where the citizens of LEGO band together to stop this bad guy from carrying out his evil plan, and they do so by taking apart their entire universe, brick by brick, and reconstructing the pieces into vehicles and tools to help them fight.
Entrants in the contest will use LEGOs and non-licensed LEGO mini-figures (this means no ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Harry Potter’ figures, guys) to set an action sequence in any one of the LEGO set worlds, like Space, Pirates, Vikings, etc. It’s up to you! Once the video is completed, you’ll need to upload it to YouTube and bookmark it on the special ReBrick Building Challenge Page, where other ReBrick members will vote on the best video.
The grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to Warner Bros. studio in Burbank, California where they’ll get a VIP tour, a meeting with the directors and participation with them in a LEGO build, an official LEGO film camera, and souvenirs from the set. The winning video may also be used in the final cut of the movie. Second and third place winners, as well as bi-weekly winners, will also be chosen and awarded various prizes, including a studio tour, merchandise from the movie, or a $200 gift card for the studio’s online store.
