'Forest of Fear' has Arrived!
(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 studio to shift gears and start work on Gone Ice Fishin', A Battle to Remember, and Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients. Another film (possibly another animatic) will be released the same day as A Battle to Remember, but it is still in the development stages. Filming the stop motion parts for Gone Ice Fishin' will be done this weekend, with an expected release on November 19th.
