It's A Damn Shame This LEGO Movie Never Got Made

A little while ago, LEGO and Blur Studios - you'd be familiar with their work - sat down to talk about the possibility of making an animated LEGO film.

So Blur's Jeff Fowler and artist Sean McNally got to work on a concept for their pitch, which revolved around a young LEGO minifig leaving his small LEGO town behind to go on an adventure in the human world. Along the way, he runs into all kinds of LEGO settings and characters who are scattered throughout the real world, like post-apocalyptic scavengers hunting for batteries and pirates battling giant...bath toys.

Sadly, Blur's pitch was only one of a number, and the movie studio responsible, Warner Bros., decided to go with something else when it green-lit the project late last year.

Bummer. Ah well, at least we can still enjoy this art from the pitch below. If you like it, you can check out more of Sean's art at his personal site.


    The artwork looks more promising and interesting than what Warner Bros will more than likely come out with.

    The expression on Duplo Thomas' face is priceless. If they were going to do something like this though it would have been pretty close to Toy Story: Lego Edition.
