On the plus side, it is not CGI.

It is hilarious. Or humorous. Is it worth the watch. I call it a ROBOT CHICKEN skit that got blown into a family-oriented feature film.

Hollywood is running out of ideas eh?

Great suffering cats! I was reading all the posts and I was laughing with a capital L!

This is the funniest (and interesting) thread I have ever made in the history of this site.

So I'm wrong, there is stopmotion in it after all! - which is a good thing, so I don't mind being wrong.

If you’re one of the many people who thought that those LEGO characters in the upcoming Lego Movie very much looked like the real thing, fear not, for your eyes weren’t playing tricks on you. At Comic-Con today, it was officially revealed that the film would be a mix of stop-motion animation and CGI, i09 is reporting. “The LEGO Movie is part-CGI and part actual real LEGO bricks in stop-motion, and (directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord) told the audience they absolutely do not want you to be able to tell which is which.” The Lego Movie opens everywhere next February.

According to Wikipedia, it is CG.

Here is actually an article about the movie on the official Lego site...

"The original 3D computer animated story"

Yep, CG.

Five ways I know of to make computer animation look more like stop-mo: 

1. No motion blur.
2. Render on two's or a mix of one's and two's.
3. No keyframes (animate frame by frame, straight ahead).
4. 3-point lighting (simulated, of course).
5.Consistent volume in the characters' bodies (no squash and stretch unless simulating clay).

I'm sure there are other things they're doing to get that look, but those are what jump out at me as being effective at "selling" it as stop motion.

So the consensus is this movie is CG, as I assumed.

The end credits are stop motion done by the team over at Stoopid Buddies Stoodio.  This was posted on their facebook page:

"Be sure to check out THE LEGO MOVIE opening this Friday! We were THRILLED to collaborate with Alma Mater in creating the AMAZING stop-motion end titles.

We hope you enjoy them as much as you enjoy the movie!"
