LEGO Dimensions features an original story that combines characters and worlds from 14 of the most popular entertainment brands including DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The LEGO Movie, The Wizard of Oz, LEGO Ninjago, Back to the Future, Scooby-Doo, LEGO Chima, Doctor Who, Jurassic World, Ghostbusters, The Simpsons, Portal and Midway Arcade.
Oooh…so we won’t just be seeing Gandalf, Batman, Scooby-Doo and friends playing Portal, but maybe Joust, Defender, Tapper and Paperboy too? Great Scott!
Beyond that, the new trailer gives us a look at new villain Lord Vortech, who is stealing characters from various realities and apparently making Sauron look like a chump, Riddler riding a Balrog, Superman looking like he might go Man of Steel on the Emerald City (watch your neck, Wicked Witch!),and a Batman vs. Batman slap-fight.
I’m maybe thinking that the Scooby-Doo tie-in will lead to Lord Vortech having a true identity as someone we’ve already come across, but that’s just a hunch…
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
