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.
