Back in early 2014, "The Lego Movie" took movie theaters by storm. The surprise Lego-inspired theatrical hit not only blew audiences away, but it also left its fans hungry for more! Lucky for you, the wait is finally over. Hoping to recapture the essence and irreverent humor of the original Lego-inspired adventure, Today, February the 10th, "The Lego Batman Movie" will be released to very anxious audiences. It's been a long three-year wait, but "The Lego Batman Movie" surely will not disappoint.

"The Lego Batman Movie" is a computer animated, comedy-action movie created by Warner Animation Group and DC Entertainment. Well suited for families, both kids and grown-ups will love the sophomoric and mildly brash humor found in this tale. You are sure to giggle as rather sassy Lego-Batman deals with his usual foes-- criminals, super-villains, and bad guys, in addition to having a few problems that are definitely of his own making.

Batman (aka Bruce Wayne) is the star of this lively spin-off of the original Lego Movie. In "The Lego Batman Movie," Gotham City has become a rather tumultuous place, requiring Batman's unique skills to be once again called into action. Batman does what he always does and defends Gotham City against all manner of nasty villains, menaces, and criminals--particularly the Joker who as usual, is causing all sorts of problems. In this film, Batman comes to grips with the fact that he can't tackle all his problems on his own. After some serious soul-searching, the Dark Knight concludes that he can't always work as a single, lone caped crusader and that more can be accomplished with a little help from his ever-ready posse of friends. Learning to work with others and accept their help is just one more of Batman's serious challenges.

As part of another interesting plot twist, Batman also has somehow found himself as the parent to an accidentally adopted son, Dick Grayson. Dick is way too anxious to help out with any and all of Batman's tasks and for that matter, any superhero stuff that needs doing. Batman's new relationship with Grayson morphs into the creation of Batman's most legendary sidekick--Robin, of course, and the newly appointed Robin's enthusiasm for his job is hilarious, in spite of Batman's initial misgivings and grumblings.

In addition to fresh new takes on the characters of Batman, Robin and The Joker, The Lego Batman Movie is filled with a vast assortment of exciting cameo appearances by many long-time favorite villains and superheroes, including Batgirl, Catwoman, Superman, Clay Face, The Green Lantern, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, Poison Ivy and The Flash. (Just to name a few!)

The Lego Batman Movie will be in theaters on Friday, February 10th. Don't miss it!
