'Playmobil: the Movie' Looks Like a Crappy Ripoff of 'The Lego Movie'
Just like the toys
Published Apr 16, 2019In the hierarchy of toys, everyone knows that Playmobil is an inferior version of Lego and usually something that was accidentally purchased by a well-intentioned relative. It's fitting, then, that Playmobil: The Movie looks like a shoddy ripoff of The Lego Movie.
The film was directed by Lino DiSalvo and looks like a budget clone of its predecessor in every way. Yes, there's even a city populated by Playmobil characters. (We can only assume the rent is far cheaper there than Lego's Bricksburg.)
Playmobil: The Movie features the voices of Anya Taylor-Joy, Jim Gaffigan, Gabriel Bateman, Adam Lambert, Kenan Thompson, Meghan Trainor and Daniel Radcliffe.
The film will hit theatres in North America on November 22, but let's be honest — your kids will be able to tell it's not Lego.
