Trivia: R2-D2 Almost Starred in ‘The Lego Movie’

The Lego Movie

The Master Builders of The Lego Movie were an eclectic bunch. There were Batman and all of his fellow Justice Leaguers, Gandalf and Dubbledore (sorry, Dumbledore), Shaq, Abraham Lincoln, Michelangelo (the painter) and Michelangelo (the turtle). One that didn’t make it in, however, was R2-D2.

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealed they originally planned for the lovable droid to be a main character in the The Lego Movie, in keeping with the gleeful mash-up spirit of the film. But in the final product, he’s nowhere to be seen. Find out why the R2-D2 Lego Movie appearance never happened after the jump.

Dark Knight Rises

These days, so many of us get on the Internet with one thing in mind: More Star Wars. Since October of 2013 when it was announced that Episode VII of the Star Wars saga was coming, many of us spend every day, at least partially, thinking about it. With just over a year to go until release, this has begun to speed up, especially with rumors of a first trailer coming and the official title: Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Below, read Nolan’s thoughts on The Force Awakens including whether or not he would’ve had the courage to make the film. Read More »
