"Five years ago, Pharrell Williams approached me with the idea of helping him tell his story through LEGO animation. It was one of those rare moments where I knew in a second that this was a journey I wanted to go on," Neville said. "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."

"When I had this crazy vision to tell his story through LEGO bricks, I couldn't have imagined a better partner than Morgan. He is a legend," Williams added. "Grateful that Focus wanted to collaborate with us and I'm honored to share this with the world and bring people into my universe."
