LEGO Movie Fan-Made Films, Plus a LEGO Batman Music Video

Lego Batman

You may love the LEGO Movie, but did you know that there were other directors involved in its creation besides Phil Lord and Christopher Miller? Unbeknownst to most of its viewers, the film actually features three short films created by members of LEGO’s ReBrick community, an official social media platform for adult LEGO fans.

Before the release of the LEGO Movie, the filmmakers set a challenge to fans to create an original short between 15 and 30 seconds long, with the theme of a LEGO minifigure changing its environment to fight off a bad guy. Those of you with sharp eyes and good memories may recall the moment in the movie when Emmet Brickowski stands in front of a set of screens and marvels at “all these things people built” – showing on those screens are the winners of the competition.

Now Warner Bros is giving audiences the chance to see each of the three winning entries (“Unity is Strength”, “Garbage Man” and “Gorgy Wants a Horse”) in full, alongside footage from six runners-up (“One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Six-legged Plunger Mech”, “Food Fighter”, “Creative Campers”, “Bovonic Tonic”, “Minotaur Mischief” and “Truckasaurus”), via an upload on its YouTube channel. Check it out:

In addition, Warner Bros has also published a music video for LEGO Batman’s massively popular “Untitled Self Portrait” song, directed by Markus Jolly:

LEGO fans are awesome!
