The LEGO Batman Movie - What You Need To Know

He stole the show in The Lego Movie, so much so that’s been given a big screen outing all of his own! To celebrate LEGO Batman’s arrival on DVD, here’s everything you need to know about his very own movie....


Who’s in it?

The voice cast is pretty stellar. Will Arnett returns to voice Batman and he is joined by Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate and Billy Dee Williams to provide the rest of the voices.


And who’s behind the camera?

Chris McKay, who has directed over 40 episodes of hit animated series Robot Chicken, has this one. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Dark Shadows writer Seth Grahame-Smith and Igor scribe Chris McKenna are among the writers credited on the movie.


What’s the plot?

In this movie we find Gotham City in chaos as our old friend The Joker runs amok. Always a menace, the villain is on heat after Batman hurts his arch-rival's feelings by telling him he is not as important in his life as he thinks he is, leading Joker to seek the ultimate revenge on him.

As things spin out of control, Batman is forced to do that thing he hates the most and ask for help from Batgirl, Robin and his old friend Alfred...


Does it deliver?

Absolutely. Hugely entertaining and very funny indeed, with over $300 million in box office receipts and rave reviews, there’s not a chance we’ve seen the last of LEGO Batman...


The LEGO Batman Movie is released on DVD, Blu-Ray and Blu-Ray Steelbook exclusive to hmv on Monday (June 19th). Click here to pre-order it in hmv’s online store.
