We Are Bricked Up for Pharrell Williams’ LEGO Biopic

Pharrell Williams is too cool for a regular biopic. The music and style icon is set to launch Piece By Piece, “an unparalleled motion picture” that will tell Pharrell’s story through a colourful landscape of LEGO bricks. Partnering with The LEGO Group, director Morgan Neville, and Focus Features, the film will be a unique cinematic journey “that captures the magic and brilliance of Pharrell Williams’ creative genius.”

No official plot or trailer has been revealed, but the press release does tease the documentary’s plot. It reads, “Uninterested in making a traditional film about his life, Pharrell set out to tell his story in a way that would set audience’s imaginations free. Developed from his singular vision, ‘Piece By Piece’ defies genres and expectations to transport audiences into a Lego world where anything is possible.”

Pharrell Williams also took to Instagram to celebrate and reveal, sharing a picture of the film’s poster. He expressed his surprise, saying, “Who would’ve thought that playing with Legos as a kid would evolve into a movie about my life. It’s proof that anyone else can do it too #PieceByPiece.” In an official statement, the 13-time Grammy-winning singer/songwriter/producer said, “When I had this crazy vision to tell this story through Lego bricks, I couldn’t have imagined a better partner than Morgan. He is a legend.”

Williams further added, “Grateful that Focus wanted to collaborate with us and I’m honored to share this with the world and bring people into my universe. Building with Lego bricks encourages us to follow our imagination…who would’ve thought that playing with these toys as a kid would evolve into a movie about my life. It’s proof that anyone else can do it too.” Neville and Caitrin Rogers of Tremolo Productions will be overseeing the film’s production, collaborating with Williams, Mimi Valdés, and Shani Saxon. Meanwhile, Jill Wilfert and Keith Malone serve as executive producers for The Lego Group.

“Five years ago, Pharrell Williams approached me with the idea of helping him tell his story through Lego animation,” director Morgan Neville said in the official statement. “It was one of those rare moments where I knew in a second that this was a journey I wanted to go on. I’m grateful to our partners at Focus Features and at the Lego Group for their belief in our crazy mission. We assembled an incredible team of creative collaborators to help make a new type of film. I can’t wait for people to see it.”

While chairman of Focus Features, Peter Kujawski, said, “Pharrell Williams is a true trailblazer whose influence across music, art and fashion continually reshapes global culture with an undeniable sense of joy. In partnering with the inimitable Morgan Neville and the limitless creativity of the Lego brand his visionary spirit comes to life in a wholly unique and uplifting way that will inspire everyone to dance, to sing, and to use their voice to build the world they want to see, brick by brick, and piece by piece.”

As of now, there are no trailers or official looks at Pharrell Williams’ ‘Piece By Piece‘, leaving us to wonder how the singer’s multi-faceted career will be translated into the world of LEGO bricks. Will it feature his music, showcase his fashion influence, or surprise us with something new? Only time will tell, but the possibilities are as limitless as his boundless creativity.

Piece By Piece’ will hit theaters on October 11.
