Playing Legos allowed one to build your own worlds pulled from your unique creative spirit. The possibilities were all valid in the world of Legos and each creator was legitimate.
The movie follows this concept in the journey of a common looking builder Lego piece, called Emmett. He is unknowingly thrown into being the major player in a plot where the Lego world, as he knows it, would be destroyed by the villain, Lord Business. There are themes of stereotypical expectations of what a hero should be and the reality that most heroic persons are born from common everyday people courageously facing extraordinary circumstances.
