“THE LEGO® MOVIE” Star Elizabeth Banks Lights the World's Largest LEGO® Christmas Tree at LEGOLAND® California Resort
“THE LEGO® MOVIE” STAR ELIZABETH BANKS LIGHTS THE WORLD’S LARGEST LEGO® CHRISTMAS TREE AT LEGOLAND® CALIFORNIA RESORT!
Family Theme Park Presents $10,000 to LA’s BEST
CARLSBAD, Calif. (Dec. 5, 2013) / PRNewswire / — Actress Elizabeth Banks took time out of her busy schedule to help Santa light the world’s largest LEGO® Christmas tree at LEGOLAND® California Resort at the 11th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in Carlsbad, California.
Banks, a mother of two, stars as the voice of “Wyldstyle” in “The LEGO® Movie” being released on February 7, 2014, and currently stars as Effie Trinket in the hit movie, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” At the ceremony, Banks presented a check from LEGOLAND California Resort for $10,000 to LA’s BEST (Better Educated Students for Tomorrow) which provides a safe and supervised after school education, enrichment and recreation program for elementary school children ages 5 to 12 in the City of Los Angeles.
Fireworks lit up the sky, snow fell from the rooftops of Fun Town and more than 11,000 LED lights illuminated the 30-foot tall Christmas tree after Banks and Santa pulled the switch to light the tree. President and CEO of LA’s BEST Carla Sanger and her two granddaughters, Zada Sanger (8) and Liliana Sanger (4) , were also on stage to help light the tree that is created out of more than 245,000 forest green DUPLO® bricks and is adorned with more than 400 LEGO® ornaments.
Guests at the ceremony were treated to a special trailer of “The LEGO Movie” and witnessed the unveiling of the theme park’s newest LEGO costume characters “Emmet” and “Wyldstyle” based on the two lead characters from the movie. The first full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, “The LEGO® Movie” is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, “The LEGO Movie” stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. Lord and Miller also wrote the screenplay, from a story by Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman and Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, based on LEGO construction toys. “The LEGO Movie” is produced by Dan Lin and Roy Lee. Executive producers are Jill Wilfert, Matthew Ashton, Kathleen Fleming, Allison Abbate, Zareh Nalbandian, Jon Burton, Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Seanne Winslow, Matt Skiena and Bruce Berman; and co-producer is John Powers Middleton. The filmmaking team includes cinematographer Pablo Plaisted, production designer Grant Freckelton, editors David Burrows and Chris McKay, and composer Mark Mothersbaugh. Chris McKay also serves as animation co-director.
The tree lighting ceremony is part of LEGOLAND California’s coolest holiday celebration ever, Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights. During this time, Fun Town is transformed into a magical, winter wonderland where families throw snowballs at LEGO themed targets and build snowmen using LEGO accessories. New this year, children can enjoy their first snow-tubing experience gliding down 7-foot tall snow-covered tube runs! Park guests can also sing along with holiday entertainment including live music featuring LEGO Friends Live, Jingle Jammers, the Big Test Holiday show and the Holiday Character Dance Party. Holiday Snow Days concludes with San Diego’s biggest Kids’ New Year’s Eve Party on Dec. 31. All Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights activities are included in the price of LEGOLAND California admission.
“The LEGO Movie” is a Warner Bros Pictures Presentation, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, in association with LEGO System A/S, a Vertigo Entertainment/Lin Pictures Production. It will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
