When I was a young girl I used to love to watch the Batman series on television – the one that stared Adam West. The series aired from 1966 – 19968 (I was born in 68′), so I saw repeats of the original series.
Back in the day Batman was one of my favorite super heroes.
If you are fan of Batman, super heroes and/or LEGOS, you’ll be interested in knowing that a brand new movie is coming to theaters on February 10, 2017. It’s appropriately called The LEGO Batman Movie.
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO® Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from The LEGO Movie as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis (Muppets Most Wanted, the Hangover films) stars as The Joker; Michael Cera (TV’s “Arrested Development”) as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson (TV’s “Daredevil”) as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes (the Harry Potter films) as Alfred.
My family and I enjoyed The LEGO Movie, so we are looking forward to seeing this film too. Even the kindergartners that I work with are super excited about seeing this film too. They talk about it often.
It looks like a fun movie that the whole family will enjoy, even if you are not necessarily a fan of super heroes.
If you would like to learn more about the film you can visit the Official Site. You can also “like” the film on Facebook and follow the film on Twitter and Instagram. The official hashtag is #LEGOBatmanMovie.
The new film even has it’s own gaming app worth checking out.
The LEGO Batman Movie app features the following fun play modes;

It looks like fun. I think a lot of children will especially enjoy being able to build their own Batmobile.
