The Lego Movie Retold by Kittens and Kids

Generally speaking, I find Pet Collective's movies retold by kittens to be less clever than they should be, relying on over-designed props more than canny kitty manipulation. In this case, however, the fact that kids seem to be in charge of the whole thing kinda makes this very much in keeping with the themes of the film, and one of the filmmakers used to have a shtick based upon dressing up as Batman, which adds an extra layer of meta.

The only major complaint I have is that they got kittens to play every major character...EXCEPT Unikitty? That's either the worst oversight ever, or a pop-culture irony up there with ZZ Top hiring a drummer named Frank Beard and having him be the one clean-shaven dude.
