A LEGO Animated Pharrell Biopic Is On The Way
Pharrell Williams is putting a new spin on biopics with a new LEGO animated feature film based on his life.
Piece by Piece will be a collaboration between the hitmaker, the LEGO Group, director Morgan Neville and Focus Features. It is scheduled to hit theatres on October 11, 2024.
A description from the press release reads, “Uninterested in making a traditional film about his life, Pharrell set out to tell his story in a way that would set audience’s imaginations free. Developed from his singular vision, Piece by Piece defies genres and expectations to transport audiences into a LEGO world where anything is possible.”
Pharrell expressed his excitement, saying, “When I had this crazy vision to tell this story through Lego bricks, I couldn’t have imagined a better partner than Morgan. He is a legend. Grateful that Focus wanted to collaborate with us and I’m honored to share this with the world and bring people into my universe. Building with Lego bricks encourages us to follow our imagination…who would’ve thought that playing with these toys as a kid would evolve into a movie about my life. It’s proof that anyone else can do it too.”
He also revealed a poster for Piece by Piece on socials, adding, "Who would’ve thought that playing with Legos as a kid would evolve into a movie about my life. It’s proof that anyone else can do it too…" See it below.
“Five years ago, Pharrell Williams approached me with the idea of helping him tell his story through Lego animation,” director Neville said in the statement.” It was one of those rare moments where I knew in a second that this was a journey I wanted to go on. I’m grateful to our partners at Focus Features and at the Lego Group for their belief in our crazy mission. We assembled an incredible team of creative collaborators to help make a new type of film. I can’t wait for people to see it.”
