Earlier this week, star Emmet Brickowski added an appropriately glamorous finishing touch by placing his distinctive hands and signature in cement, a time-honored show business tradition that will continue when his handprints go on permanent display outside the theater, along with those of his co-stars Wyldstyle, Benny, Unikitty, MetalBeard and shady newcomer Risky Business.

It’s gonna be awesome!

A while back, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort partnered with the HLN cable network’s popular talk show, “Morning Express with Robin Meade,” to sponsor a Grand Prize vacation for the family of a child who created the most impressive LEGO monster model. The #BrickOrTreatContest drew entries from all over the country, and in the end, we decided to give the Grand Prize to all three kid finalists.

One, 10-year-old Sage Stuchell of Petoskey, Mich., arrives with his family this week. Here’s what he had to say before leaving home, where today’s high temperature is a frosty 30 degrees:

I feel very excited to be going to LEGOLAND® Florida Resort.  I’ve always loved building with LEGO® and wanted to go to LEGOLAND ever since I heard about it in the LEGO Club Magazine. I look forward to meeting Emmet and all the other characters that can be found in LEGOLAND. I can’t wait to meet a LEGO Master Model Builder in the hotel workshop. One question I will have to ask is, What is the best way to create a LEGO model from an idea?

The Dragon is one of the first rides I would like to ride — it sounds super fun. I think “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” is going to be awesome. LEGO is the coolest toy.

Check back on our blog for a recap of Sage’s whirlwind visit, including his trip down the red carpet for tomorrow’s invitation-only world premiere of “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” and a private tour of the model shop located inside our brand-new LEGOLAND Hotel.

And the award goes to… Emmet!

Emmet Award

A pair of giant “Emmet Award” statues now flank the entrance to the Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater.

In preparation for the world premiere of “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, the attraction’s star, Emmet Brickowski, has been immortalized outside the Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater with a pair of giant, golden statues evoking the classic glitz and glamour of show business.

(Any resemblance to another famous golden award statue is purely coincidental, of course. At least that’s what our lawyer told us to say.)

The iconic “Emmet Award” figures tower more than 8 feet above the entrance plaza outside the theater, which is undergoing a dramatic transformation as it prepares to reveal what happened after the events of “The LEGO® Movie™.”

Stay tuned for more news about the attraction and several more Hollywood-style enhancements that will be unveiled at the theme park theater in the weeks leading up to its gala grand opening.   “The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure” opens Friday, Jan. 29.
