The LEGO Movie (rated PG), hits theaters on February 7, 2014, and we have an exclusive interview with the Emmet, the main character from the film.
Welcome, Emmet. Thanks for answering our questions!
Q: What is the best part about people thinking you are a “Special?”
Emmet: First off, how cool is it that you’re asking ME a question?! Before, I don’t think anyone ever even thought about me, let alone wanted to ask me a question. Second off, what was the question? I kind of forgot after being so excited that I get to answer a question.
Q: What is the worst part?
Emmet: The worst part. Geesh. The worst part? Um . . . What. Is. The. Worst. Part. Let’s pretend I didn’t hear the question. Can we do that?
Q: What does it feel like to save the world from the evil Lord Business?
Emmet: That’s easy: Awesome. Totally awesome! I still can’t believe I did that.
Q: Did you ever have any doubts about being able to save the world?
Emmet: Me? No. Never . . . Maybe a few. Yes . . .Lots!
Q: What was it like working with Wyldstyle and all the Master Builders?
Emmet: Hard at first. Then harder after that. Then it got a tad bit easier. But then it got a whole lot harder. Maybe even hardest at the end. But now, we just look back and laugh.
Q: Metalbeard looks INSANELY awesome! What was it like to work with him?
Emmet: Whenever you get a chance to work with someone with a shark on his arm, you TAKE it!
Q: Did you ever feel out of your depth?
Emmet: I still don’t know what it feels like to be IN my depth. Oh no. Does that make me shallow?
Q: What do you like to do in your free time?|
Emmet: The usual stuff: Watch TV. Grab a coffee. Save the world.
Q: What is your favorite color?
Emmet: Hmm . . . Green . . . no . . . Yellow . . . no wait . . . it’s back to green again. Definitely green. Wait, can I choose chartreuse?
Q: What is your favorite food?
Q: Has your life changed now that you are the Master Builder AND the star of your own movie? Do people recognize you on the street?
Emmet: Totally. People recognize me all the time now. They say, “Hey, watch out for that car!” Or “Hey, is that for here or to go?” So, I guess my life has changed a lot now that I’m a Master Builder.
That and I’ve got the most amazing friends in the whole entire world. Life’s pretty good.
Q: How did you like making the movie?
Emmet: Are you kidding me? It was the best!!! On a scale from one to ten, I’d give it a solid thirteen and a half.
Q: Would you like to make another movie?
Emmet: Um, yeah! But next time, maybe Batman can be a little nicer to me. That guy can be really dark sometimes.
