'Forest of Fear' has Arrived!

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; October 21, 2011)      After a long 2-year development period (unusually long for an 18-minute film), Forest of Fear has finally been released. At the premiere, the cast and crew was in attendance, as well as invited VIPs. Among these VIPs was the original director, Barry Hallows. Before going in, he got a picture with the film's final director, Seth Masterson. Afterwards, he declared that he loved the movie. "This was just a wonderful movie, with all of the monsters, colorful characters, and great ending. I can certainly say that this may be one of the best films I've seen this Halloween season," said Barry. "Even though we're sad to not have Barry direct the film, the input that he gave during development is what I give credit to for making this film the way it is today," said Lego Studios CEO Mark Matthew.      Now that Forest of Fear has been released and submitted into Festival of Souls 2, it is now time for the s…

However, because it is being released for the Festival of Souls 2 contest, all parts of the film will be released simultaneously. Also this month, two more Tales of the Adventurers comics will be released.      November: Next, things will begin to feel colder. At least, our November (or, should I say Novemburr) film will. Titled Gone Ice Fishin', this short film will center around the ice fisherman from LEGO Minifi…
