This past Saturday my family and I were invited along to the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Manchester to experience the new 4D LEGO Movie. Now we have reviewed the LDC on numerous occasions and nothing has changed since my last visit, so won’t go over that again. Needless to say if you have young ones it’s worth a visit and then double up and enjoy the SeaLife Centre next door!
So the new movie is a direct follow up from the smash hit movie in an all new 12 minute film here is the films blurb “In “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure,” Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny are invited to visit a strange new theme park where all the rides are inspired by the madcap events of “The LEGO® Movie™.” But all is not as it seems when the heroes are once again thrust into the middle of an evil secret plot and must rely on the Master Builder skills of a surprise ally to save the day.
“The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” 12 minute film will screen throughout the day at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort in the Imagination Theatre. “4D” elements such as wind, water, fog, lighting and other special effects will bring the larger-than-life experience off the screen and into the audience.
The attraction was developed by Merlin Entertainments in conjunction with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group to further explore the sprawling, imaginative LEGO® universe introduced in the movie. The creative team received input from “The LEGO® Movie™” writer-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, as well as Rob Schrab, who is set to direct the movie’s sequel”.
Now all the voice actors respired their roles except Chris Pratt, not sure who voiced him and Risky Business is also a new voice. Kids won’t notice but it was something I picked up on straight away. Now with a 4D movie you require 3D vision, now most people take it as a given but I myself don’t have any 3D vision, so while my wife and daughter were ducking and diving to avoid things coming out the screen I settled for enjoying what was a decent story. Also the graphics was on par with the original movie. Some of the rides would make awesome LEGO sets and I found the story kept the same tone and humor as the movie.
The 12 minute movie just flies buy and the added effects are great with everyone on the front rows getting a good soaking. Another highlight is when the master builders interact with the audience to help them build weapons to defeat Risky Business. The entire family left with a big smile on their faces and all said they enjoyed it. My daughter talked all the way back to Sheffield she enjoyed it that much. So if you are looking for something to do this Easter holidays we all highly recommend taking your family to see the all new 4D Movie.
