“Do your kids still play with Legos,” asked a friend recently, wondering if our favorite colorful building blocks still have a cool factor among the tweens and teens in our house. Truthfully, Legos don’t occupy as much time as they used to in my kids’ lives but I have a feeling there will a renewed interest thanks to the upcoming release of the LEGO Batman movie on February 10.
Just as kids went home to build after watching The LEGO® Movie in theaters, I predict the same thing will happen after they watch LEGO Batman save Gotham from being taken over by The Joker. Not only will kids be clamoring to build with bricks but they’ll also want to embrace their inner Batman any way they can.
Besides physical bricks, today’s digital kids will also want to continue the fun with the LEGO Batman Movie Game App.
About the LEGO Batman Movie App
Start by choosing to play either as Batman or Batgirl (you can unlock other characters for game play by earning studs by through game play, or watching daily featured videos) and run, drive, and fly across The Bat Cave, The Street, and Rooftops of Gotham & Arkham Asylum.
Earn 1000 studs and cash them in on your own Batmobile to fly to new environments to battle well known villains like the Joker, the Penguin, and Poison Ivy. More game play results in the ability to customize your vehicle and unlock others such as the Joker’s Notorious Lowrider and Bane’s Toxic Truck.
Music lovers will love the ability to be a DJ in the DJ Mini Game that features music from the LEGO Batman Movie. Just tap your way to the beat of the rhythm and nail that beat to help Batman to save himself with DJ MODE.
The game is a fun extension of the movie that fuels creativity when it’s time to unplug and return to building with physical LEGOS.
About LEGO Batman, the movie
Movie description from Warner Brothers:
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO® Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from “The LEGO Movie” as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis (“Muppets Most Wanted,” the “Hangover” films) stars as The Joker; Michael Cera (TV’s “Arrested Development”) as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson (TV’s “Daredevil”) as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes (the “Harry Potter” films) as Alfred.
LEGO Batman, the movie is rated PG and you can read the full review on Common Sense Media when it is released on Tuesday, February 10 to see if it’s appropriate for your kids. And parents- just in case you’re not excited about going to see this animated movie, Mashable applauds the emotions behind the on-screen story, action and dialogue in what they call a “raucous, frenetic pop-culture joyride.”
