Production of the film began in 2009.[5] A Kickstarter campaign was launched in 2013, from which the project received $14,121 from 155 backers. The film was finally finished in 2015.[6]

Release and legal trouble Edit

The film was released on DVD, which could be bought from the Monitogo Studios website and was slated to have distribution in stores,[7] but The LEGO Group threatened legal action, so in 2016, the film was released for free on the internet. The DVD is no longer available for purchase.[8]
