2014 will see the release of the first ever Lego movie. A specific release date is still to be announced.

The finished work will reportedly be a mix of animation with live action scenes and will be '80 per cent Lego'.

Australian effects company vfx-toon will produce the animation with Phil Lord and Chris Miller – the team behind 2009's CGI hit Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs - writing the script.

The movie looks set to provide another boost to the Lego brand. The partnership between Warner and Lego has already seen the construction toy spun into a series of CG-animated cartoons and a successful line of video games based on licences like Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean.
