Emmet, Lucy, Unikitty and Batman have headed back to the big screen for another Lego adventure, and DK Canada has released the kid-friendly guide that will help you appreciate that everything is awesome with this movie, and all the Lego creations that populate it.
The bright and colorful book takes the reader through the characters, vehicles, and realms, including the distant Systar system, ruled by Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi, who has kidnapped Emmet’s friends, and propels the Master Builder into his new advenure.
Fun, goofy and irreverent, much like the film universe that has been created with these movies, the book is perfectly suited for the young Lego reader in your home. The bright images and text are bound to entertain young ones that can’t get enough of this film world.
These films, these books delight me, but also fill me with so much envy. When I was a kid, you had to be a master builder from the off. We didn’t have all the cool sets that are available now. We don’t have the different playsets or the mini-figures. I would have to create things on my own, I made my own Star Wars cantina set, my own Star Trek communicator and phaser, or occasionally Enterprise.
So I think that is some of the appeal of Emmet to older fans, he creates anything and everything that h can think of, scooping up the pieces he needs as he goes.
But that’s not the only reason to enjoy these movies, and the books, the humor, there’s a wonderful irreverence to the films, and the Lego universe as a whole that translates nicely to this book.
The pictures give us close up looks at the characters, vehicles, and homes, or vehicle homes as the case may be.
I think the only down side to the book is that I read it before I had a chance to see the movie, and may have spoiled some of it for myself. That being said, if you and yours have seen the movie, then this makes a nice memento of the experience.
Y’know like the souvenir magazines of yesteryear, but as a hardcover this one is bound to last longer.
I also dig the fact that there are little things that get mentioned throughout the book that you may have missed in the original viewing, making it necessary for another one, or just to marvel at the level of detail that the film makers have imbued the Lego universe with.
Murray makes this Lego book a fun addition to the film, and it’s definitely one for the youngsters so pick one up for your little Lego fan, and watch their imagination soar! So pick up a copy of DK Books’ latest and indulge your Master Builder today!
