Update, January 8, 3:30 p.m.
The premiere date of the short film at the Legoland Discovery Center in Somerville has been pushed back from February 6 to February 20.
A couple of spin-offs and a sequel to The Lego Movie are coming up over the next two years, but in the meantime, there’s a short 4-D animated film to tide fans over.
The 15-minute film, titled The Lego Movie 4D A New Adventure, will bring back Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, Benny, and MetalBeard in a new adventure that takes place after the events of the first feature film. It will introduce a new villain, named Risky Business and voiced by Patton Oswalt, who invites the gang to a curious theme park that bears resemblance to Legoland.
The returning characters will be voiced by some of the same actors from the feature film—Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, and Charlie Day. The film was written by Adam Pava of The Boxtrolls and co-written and directed by Rob Schrab, who’s directing the Lego Movie sequel.
The Lego Movie 4D A New Adventure will premiere at the Legoland Florida Resort on January 29 and will later roll out to 11 Legoland Discovery Centers throughout North America, Asia, and Europe, including the local outpost in Somerville, where it will debut on February 20.
