Studio Update: Project U Begins Filming and Decide the Next Archive Collections!

By: Andrew Bermudez (LEGO Studios; September 23, 2014)      Just two days ago, filming for the massive, multi-year project Project U officially began with the opening scenes for Attack of the Fifty-Foot Hamster. While the giant hamster puppet is nearing completion, the scenes that do not require it will be completed first.

Garrett LeSueur writes:I'm really looking forward to your new Johnny Thunder movie this August! And I definitely can't wait to see Patrick's idiocy get the better of Lord Sam Sinister. And I also have an idea for another movie you could possibly make. Would you like me to tell you what it is? Mark:Sure thing! You should probably send it as a private message, though.
