The LEGO Movie is a story about Emmet, a typical Lego rule-following mini-figure, who accidentally finds a relic that can challenge the almost absolute power of evil Lord Business over the nine realms of the Lego universe. Mistaken by a tough woman named Wyldstyle as the Special (the greatest Master Builder), who was prophesized by old wizard Vitruvius to save the Lego universe, Emmet’s heretofore ordinary life quickly changes. As he is hunted down upon strict orders from Lord Business, Emmet finds help from master builders including Batman, Uni-kitty, Benny, and Metalbeard to escape Lord Business and maybe even save the Lego universe.
