A trailer released in October revealed the project will retain the comedic elements of the video game series.

The direct-to-video release is different from a separate Lego-centric project in the works. That movie is being voiced by Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman and Will Arnett as Batman. 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing for a Feb. 7, 2014 theatrical release.
