(Under rewriting)

Feature length brickfilms are brickfilms that are at least 40 minutes or longer. Although there have been different definitions of what can constitute a feature length brickfilm, this definition of feature length is based on the generally agreed upon definition used by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the American Film Institute, and the British Film Institute.

Although the majority of brickfilms tend to be shorts, some significant feature length films have been produced, both officially by The LEGO Group and by independent filmmakers. This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness.

The LEGO Group Edit

The LEGO Group has also produced several feature-length films.

From 2003 to 2009, a series of four Bionicle films were released, following the storyline of the ten-year Bionicle product[5] theme.

In 2010, The Adventures of Clutch Powers[6] was released by The LEGO Group. Clutch Powers, the main protagonist, goes on missions for the LEGO Group. In the movie he learns the value of teamwork, when he is teamed up with 3 other minifigures to save a castle-themed planet. A sequel is currently in post-production.

In 2014 the feature-length film The LEGO Movie was released and was followed by two spin-offs in 2017, The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie. All three films are CGI, but animated in the style of stop-motion animation.

The main-on-end credits of The LEGO Movie were animated in stop-motion. The sequence was created by the studio Alma Mater with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios and took almost a year to produce. [7]

A sequel to The LEGO Movie, called The LEGO Movie: The Second Part was released in 2019.[8]
