Production HistoryEdit

The earliest version of what would eventually become Legends of the Universe was formulated in 2012, just as production started on New Friends ~ An Environmental Fable. There, Andrew Bermudez and Raul Flores would pitch ideas back and forth for a hypothetical "Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Avengers" film, which would initially feature only a handful of heroes from the different films. However, in order for this to work, all of the films had to exist in the same universe. This led to the creation of the official cinematic universe.

Earlier that same year, the popular, but financially-stricken, MMOG LEGO Universe was shut down after an unsuccessful 16-month run. While Andrew Bermudez never played the game, he saw potential in the game's story line. From there, Legends of the Universe was born, along with Project U as a whole.

The film was officially announced on February 21, 2014 at The Second Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Fan Choice Awards as part of the Project U announcement. While news on the film went quiet to finish the script, which was accomplished in June 2017, filming officially started on July 23, 2015, as one of this film's scenes shares one of the sets for Alpha Team: Mission Deep Jungle. Filming then went on a multi-year hiatus, as work was focused towards the other Project U films that were planned to be released first. During this time, the film saw massive re-writes to add character to the dialogue, as well as ensure that this film officially becomes the longest brickfilm of all time upon release, as the script was already close to the running time for the current record-holder, The Wars of Darkness (that film is 245 minutes long).

TriviaEdit

  • This is expected to be the longest animated brickfilm in history, as it is expected to take the record from the current record holder, The Wars of Darkness.
  • The original projected release date, October 26, 2020, was selected because that day is the tenth anniversary of LEGO Universe's launch. This release date has since been retracted due to scheduling and the timing of the cinematic universe. Instead, this day has been slated for the release of this film's first teaser.
