Warner Bros. has green lit a live-action/animation LEGO movie, which is slated for release in 2014. Variety reports that the film will consist of 80 percent animation produced by Animal Logic, an Aussie-based vfx house whose previous credits include Happy Feet and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. Although further details are scarce, Variety has provided a list of those involved with the production:

“Lego” has been in development at Warner Bros. since 2008, when the studio began working with the toymaker on a family comedy based on the popular building blocks with Dan Lin and Roy Lee producing and the writing team of Dan and Kevin Hageman tapped to pen the script. In 2010, Warners brought on the “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller to write and direct… Warners recently brought on Chris McKay, director of Adult Swim’s stop-motion animation/comedy “Robot Chicken,” to serve as co-director on “Lego” under Lord and Miller.

With such impressive talent involved behind the scenes, the resulting film will surely be on the top of every LEGO fanatic’s “must see” list.
