How To Build a Log Cabin is Now Coming May 22!      Around here, delays had become the norm, with films being delayed for years.

Well, in light of that, we're moving How To Build a Log Cabin up from its original May 29 release date! We are pleased to announce that How To Build a Log Cabin will now debut one week ahead of schedule on May 22, just in time for Memorial Day!      This announcement also saw the release of the film's official poster, which uses stills from the film to summarize the film's quick and funny story.

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; May 14, 2020)      Back on May 9, 2020, a new documentary that briefly features Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra was released! If you don't believe us, read on!
Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra Has Been Featured in a Documentary!      Yes, you have read that correctly. Our latest film was featured, alongside many other films, in the documentary The History of Brickfilms: LEGO Studios! This documentary is actually the latest episode of a docu-series titled The History of Brickfilms, which originally debuted 2 years ago with an episode on brickfilms from the 70's and 80's. This episode, however, is the longest yet at almost an hour long, as it not only covers the LEGO Studios product line, but also the promotions surrounding it, as well as the legacy left behind by the product line, specifically The Steven Spielberg Movie Maker Set! That legacy is where Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra c…

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; May 7, 2020)
     As we have continued to research the history of LEGO animation, we have discovered that we shared some mis-information several years ago. Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo was never the longest brickfilm ever made. To find out which one was, and still is, read on.
Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo was Never the Longest Brickfilm in History
     Back on August 24, 2008, we announced the release of Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo with the declaration that it was the longest brickfilm in history. After conducting some research in recent days, however, we have discovered that this statement was never true, not by a long shot. This isn't to discredit its long length, but there are other brickfilms that are longer. MUCH longer. This, then, brings up the question on everyone's mind.

Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo - The Adventure Retold is Going Forward!      Last Friday, we reported that the on-going coronavirus pandemic had put the future of Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo - The Adventure Retold (better known as the remake of "Secret of Marco Polo") into jeopardy. Today, we are pleased to report that this film, as controversial as it is, is still happening! "While the original film is highly revered by those who grew up with it," said LEGO Studios CEO Mark Matthew, "we also understand that certain aspects of the film are not resonating with newer fans.
