4D Chi

By January 18, 2013

Follow me on:

This just in from Legoland California: In addition to the Legoland Hotel that will be opening in early April, the park will add a new film to its roster of 4D movies, LEGO Legends of Chima. (No, that's not a spelling error. The presentation has nothing to do with China -- although Lego blocks are likely manufactured in China. But I digress.) Set to debut in March, the film will introduce a new series of Chima-themed Lego toys. You have to love the synergy, right?

If it is anything like its other 4D movies, and I suspect that it will be, the new film will forego any discernible dialogue and use sound effects, hand gestures, and other non-verbal communication to tell its story. That would help make Chima easily understood by Legoland California's many younger visitors as well as its non-English-speaking guests. It would also enable the film to be shown at Legoland parks around the globe without having to worry about dubbing it into other languages.

Legoland says the 12-minute animated movie will have something to do with animal soldiers who fight for an all-powerful energy source known as "Chi." It sounds a tad aggressive for the normally laid-back park. In June, Legoland will also be expanding the Star Wars tableaus in its Miniland area.

That is very good news.
How about other movies? Do they only show one movie all the time or there are some otheres?

Thanks for writing Eugene. The theater hosts different movies throughout each day. “LEGO Legends of Chima” will be added to the list.
