Put LEGO® Unikitty™, Dr. Fox™, Prince Puppycorn™, a ball and a ray gun together in a lab, and anything can happen. Like accidentally creating an evil Unikitty clone that’s now on a mission to make everyone in Unikingdom super sad! From birthday parties to the fairgrounds, on land and in the air – no one is safe! It’s time to bring out all the sparkle, sunshine, popcorn and optimism they can muster to bring joy and awesome back to Unikingdom, and the evil clone back to the lab! Based on characters and scenes from the sparkly LEGO Unikitty™! TV series.
This was the first Lego project where we received full permissions to modify the bricks to mimic the brilliant animation of the 2D Unikitty show!! I was thrilled to engineer a simple rig (drilling the brick centers and inserting a floral wire through them) so the bricks could bend, curve, come apart, and fall back together -- and the animators worked their magic on screen beautifully inspired by the 2D show!
