So, I scoffed at the “Lego: Piece of Resistance” movie. I thought it was stupid. I thought it’d be dumb. You know what? I’m all of a sudden looking forward to see how this turns out. Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt have already been confirmed. Now, even more A-listers are joining them. Will Ferrell, Nick Offerman, Liam Neeson and Alison Brie will join the voice cast! Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing. They helmed “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” and “21 Jump Street”, so it looks like this film is in good hands.

No joke, I’m actually looking forward to this film now.
