For Lego fans, this might be a childhood dream come true.
 
An official Lego movie that brings the bricks to life is due out next year and the first trailer hit the web on Tuesday.

The 3D-animated film tells a story of Emmet, an ordinary Lego mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most powerful person and the key to saving the world. Emmet is then sent on an involuntary mission to defeat an evil ruler, a journey for which he is "hopelessly and hilariously underprepared," according to The International Business Times.

“Parks and Recreation’s” Chris Pratt lends his voice to Emmet. The rest of the voice cast includes Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, and Alison Brie.
 
“The Lego Movie” is directed by duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord, who also produced “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” and “21 Jump Street.”
 
The film is set to hit theaters in both the U.S. and U.K. in early February, 2014. Check out the trailer below:
