LEGOLAND Florida Resort Unveils Giant, Hollywood-style 'Emmet Awards' Ahead of Attraction's Jan. 29 Grand Opening 2


In preparation for the world premiere of “The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure” at LEGOLAND Florida Resort, the attraction’s star, Emmet Brickowski, has been immortalized outside the Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater with a pair of giant, golden statues.

The iconic “Emmet Award” figures tower more than 8 feet above the entrance plaza outside the theater, which is undergoing a dramatic transformation as it prepares to reveal what happened after the events of “The LEGO Movie.”

Photographs of the statues released offer a first peek at the red carpet-style makeover that will greet guests when “The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure” opens Friday, Jan. 29. The 12 ½-minute 3D film will play several times a day at the theme park, with “4D” effects such as wind, water, fog and more bringing the action bursting off the screen and into the audience.


Now on display in the theme park, the statues flank a newly shaded entrance queue, one of several Hollywood-style enhancements at the theme park theater that will be unveiled in the weeks leading up to the attraction’s gala grand opening on January 29th.

We will be previewing this new attraction next week, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest!
