Step aside, LEGO! Discover new worlds in trailer for Playmobil: The Movie

Sure, we've got THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART on the way, but you know all the cool kids will be holding out for the sweet bliss which is PLAYMOBIL: THE MOVIE, a project which I had completely forgotten about until just this second. You can check out the trailer for yourself and come to your own conclusions, but if I'm being perfectly honest, it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would be. To clarify, although it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would be, it also doesn't look to be quite on the same level as LEGO.

That said, PLAYMOBIL: THE MOVIE does sport more than a few recognizable names, including Anya Taylor-Joy (GLASS), Daniel Radcliffe (SWISS ARMY MAN), Jim Gaffigan (CHAPPAQUIDDICK), Meghan Trainor (SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE), Adam Lambert (American Idol), Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live), and Gabriel Bateman (CHILD'S PLAY). The film finds Marla (Taylor-Joy) heading into the magical, animated universe of Playmobil in order to retrieve her younger brother Charlie (Bateman). Once there, she sets off on a fantastic journey across stunning new worlds, meeting up with new friends along the way and screaming at her newly plastic existence. Business as usual.

The official synopsis for PLAYMOBIL: THE MOVIE:

PLAYMOBIL: THE MOVIE takes audiences on an epic comedy adventure through a sprawling imaginative universe in the first-ever feature film inspired by the beloved, award-winning PLAYMOBIL® role-play toys. Packed with humour and excitement the film combines endearing and hilarious characters, thrilling adventure and breathtaking scenery in this originally animated heart-warming tale. When her younger brother Charlie (Gabriel Bateman) unexpectedly disappears into the magical, animated universe of PLAYMOBIL®, unprepared Marla (Anya Taylor-Joy) must go on a quest of a lifetime to bring him home. As she sets off on a fantastic journey across stunning new worlds, Marla teams up with some unlikely and heroic new friends - the smooth-talking food truck driver Del (Jim Gaffigan), the dashing and charismatic secret agent Rex Dasher (Daniel Radcliffe), a wholehearted misfit robot, an extravagant fairy-godmother (Meghan Trainor) and many more. Through their vibrant adventure, Marla and Charlie realize that no matter how life plays out, you can achieve anything when you believe in yourself!

PLAYMOBIL: THE MOVIE is set for an August 16, 2019 release.
