Lego Studios Receives Letter from Reporter

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; July 21, 2010)      Typically, the studio does not report this kind of stuff, since they get plenty of fan mail every day (there was especially an influx of hate mail when Worcester was mispronounced in Worcester Cold Storage Warehouse Fire). However, there was one letter that struck Mark Matthew as very interesting, since it was from the same reporter who said that the ending of Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile was an obvious set up for another sequel. This is what the letter said:      To the Lego Studios Board of Directors,      As you may know, I was the reporter from ABS Daily that attended the world premiere of Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile last Friday.

We thought the release might be delayed, but it's now taken care of for the release on July 16th. We can certainly say that, even though we ran into a few mishaps along the way, we managed to pull through it all and get the film released," said director Steven Lawrence.
     However, not all of the projected release days survived the storm. "We're going to have to indefinitely delay the release of Forest of Fear," said boom operator Sarah Williamson.
