WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (Jan. 20, 2016) – In preparation for the world premiere of “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, the attraction’s star, Emmet Brickowski, has been immortalized outside the Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater with a pair of giant, golden statues evoking the classic glitz and glamour of show business.
(Any resemblance to another famous golden award statue is purely coincidental, of course. At least that’s what our lawyer told us to say.)
The iconic “Emmet Award” figures tower more than 8 feet above the entrance plaza outside the theater, which is undergoing a dramatic transformation as it prepares to reveal what happened after the events of “The LEGO Movie.”
Exclusive photographs of the statues released today offer a first peek at the red carpet-style makeover that will greet guests when “The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure” opens Friday, Jan. 29. The 12 ½-minute 3D film will play several times a day at the theme park, with “4D” effects such as wind, water, fog and more bringing the action bursting off the screen and into the audience.
Each larger-than-life likeness of Emmet was created with precisely scaled measurements of the famous LEGO® minifigure. Now on display in the theme park, the gleaming statues flank a newly shaded entrance queue, one of several Hollywood-style enhancements at the theme park theater that will be unveiled in the weeks leading up to the attraction’s gala grand opening.
