If you thought a premiere party for "The LEGO Movie 2" would be anything but awesome, you'd be right. Even on a rainy Los Angeles day, the stars came out to play to support the hilarious sequel to the now iconic "The LEGO Movie." The voices of the main characters, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Tiffany Haddish, Alison Brie, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mamoa and Charlie Day all walked the blue carpet (why not?) in support of their animated latest film.
Inside the pre-screening party was every a family-friendly party for the ages with LEGO building stations everywhere, Color Me Mine painting, a candy bar with LEGO brick candies and a life-size Emmet and Wild Style walking around.
One of the highlights of the premiere was seeing a life-size Chevy Silverado truck made completely out of LEGOs. No, seriously. The kids were going nuts - and the stars!
And the verdict on the film? According to some very seasoned 7- and 5-year-olds, "It was the best movie ever!"
All joking aside, they loved it even more than the first LEGO movie, which is saying a lot. And if you have a sensitive child (i.e. mine still refuse to rewatch "Frozen" because of the ice monster,) know that this would be the perfect film for them to enjoy in the theater — no part was too dark, "mean" or scary for either child and they both had huge grins on their faces the entire time. Not to mention the head-bopping soundtrack. Let's just say "Everything Is Awesome" will no longer be the LEGO song stuck inside of their head. Or yours.
But this mom's favorite part of the film was the heartfelt message at the end that parents of siblings should all be able to relate to — and hopefully it encourages big brothers and sisters to be a little kinder to their younger counterpart.
We already can't wait to watch it again.
