Star Wars fans who can't wait until December 18, 2015 to see their favorite characters return to the silver screen can rejoice. It has been announced that a few characters from a galaxy far, far away will appear in The Lego Movie. While the specifics of which characters made the cut have been kept under wraps, we know they'll be joining a roster that also includes DC superheroes Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman.
This is all according to the Wall Street Journal, who have reportedly spoken with a person close to the movie. They also point out that this arrangement is unusual since the movie is coming from Warner Bros, meanwhile Star Wars is owned by rival, Disney. It's possible that this deal was made before Disney purchased Star Wars from George Lucas last year. The inclusion of DC characters, though, should come as no surprise since WB has owned them since 1969.
The Lego Movie is set to arrive in theaters on February 7, and will include a stellar voice cast. Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Channing Tatum, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, Jonah Hill, and many more have lent their lungs to the production.
This should also come as welcome news to longtime fans of the successful Lego Star Wars video games.
