TRAILER: 'The Lego Movie' Assembles an Awesome Tribute to the Greatest Toys Ever

I love Legos. I have since I was a kid. I still do. If there was ever a greater toy invented, I never found it. In a perfect world, kids would be handed Lego sets and given the freedom to imagine whatever they wanted instead of sitting glued to video games.

When it was announced that a movie based on my favorite toys was being put together, I was just a bit apprehensive. Hollywood has not been kind with childhood icons, bastardizing Alvin and the Chipmunks and the Smurfs into dreadful movies. The Lego Movie is being directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, though, the duo that gave us an the extremely funny 21 Jump Street movie last year. That's a good sign, right? On top of that, The Lego Movie is going to feature the voice talent of some very good comedy talent like Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell, Alison Brie and Nick Offerman. Not a bad group of actors.

The first trailer for The Lego Movie hit the Internet on Tuesday, giving us our first look at the movie. I'm impressed not only by the Lego minifigures featured in the trailer — everyone from old-school astronauts to Superman to the collectible Minifigures — but also by the style The Lego Movie is going with. Everything looks like it's been assembled. Some of the animation isn't even all that smooth, but that kind of sells the style. This movie looks awesome.

The Lego Movie hits theaters on Feb. 7, 2014. Head past the jump to check out the first trailer for the movie.
