Behind the Lego Movie VOICES: Emmet, Channing Tatum, Batman!

The 2014 Lego Movie is one of the hottest movies on Freeview TV this year.

Hilarious, smart and inspiring, this one isn’t just for the kids.

As with many animated movies, the voicing cast is a star-studded affair. Here’s everything you need to know about the Lego Movie, including when it’s on TV and info on the voice actors.

When is the Lego Movie on TV?

The Lego Movie is on TV on Christmas Eve – Monday, December 24th.

It starts at 7 pm on ITV2.

It will also be repeated on Boxing Day on the same channel at 4:55 pm.

Lego Movie Voice of Emmet

Emmet is the lead lego figure in the Lego Movie and he’s voiced by a Hollywood A-lister.

Chris Pratt, who is in Jurassic World and Guardian’s of the Galaxy, is the voice of the super-adorable master builder.

Oh, and for added trivia, Emmet’s last name is Brickowski!

Lego Movie Voice of Batman

Batman is arguably the funniest character of the Lego Movie franchise, and he’s even got his own spin-off movie.

Will Arnett portrays the hilariously arrogant and cocksure Batman. You’ll recognise him from a long list of movies, including Snow Dogs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Popstar.

Lego Movie Voice of Lucy

Lucy, also known as wildstyle in the movie, is Emmett’s trusty guide into the master builder world.

Unfortunately, the actress who voices Lucy doesn’t have multicoloured hair.

Elizabeth Banks plays Lucy. She is famous for roles in the new Power Rangers movie, Hunger Games (Effie Trinket) and Pitch Perfect.

Lego Movie Good Cop

Obviously, both the good cop and the bad cop are voiced by the same person – and you may recognise that deep, husky tone.
