Emmet, Wyldstyle and Friends Reunite in All-New Story Debuting Feb 26 at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort
Iskandar Puteri, Malaysia – After the launch of the “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” at the LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, the new episode is now making its official debut at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort.
Reuniting the stars of “The LEGO® Movie™” in a LEGOLAND Parks exclusive storyline, fans can look forward to finding out what happened after the blockbuster movie, when Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny reunite at the invitation of a shady new character, Risky Business, who plans to open a theme park bearing a suspicious resemblance to LEGOLAND.
Returning to voice their iconic characters are actors Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle), Nick Offerman (MetalBeard), Charlie Day (Benny) and Alison Brie (Unikitty). Actor, writer and comedian Patton Oswalt lends his voice to the scheming Risky Business, whose Evil Secret Plot requires the heroes to call on the Master Builder skills of a surprise ally to save the day.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny to LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort! It’s a part of the commitment we’ve made to our Park guests who have been supporting us since the opening of the Resort, to constantly keep them entertained. That commitment recently won us the Best Tourist Attraction award in the Man-Made Attraction category at the Malaysia Tourism Awards 2014/2015. With our guests always in mind, we believe that this attraction will delight both young and old LEGO Movie fans alike. It’ll definitely be a must see show at the Park,” commented Mark Germyn, General Manager, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort.
The 4D short film will play several times a day at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort’s LEGO Studio at the Imagination area, with effects such as wind, water, fog and more bringing the action off the screen and into the audience.
In conjunction with the launch of the new attraction, we will also be running an online promotion ‘Buy 2nd ticket 50% off’ starting 22 February till to 9 March, 2016 in the Philippines. For more information please visit our website at www.legoland.my.
