In life, there are two kinds of people : those who grew up with LEGO and those who grew up with Playmobil. The first were able to become beings exciting, with a vivid imagination, while the others have only been able to become firefighters, or policemen, or construction manager. It is sad, but it is like that.
There is not a value judgement but we need to admit that at the time when we were kids, it was the vision of these two schools of the life. The Playmobil, it was more down-to-earth, in line with the stiffness of the figures, even if in the years that followed, the range is enriched for go and touch the finger to the world of pirates, vikings, and almost everything and anything.
In before the stories
Necessarily, when their mortal enemy released two films that score, The Great Adventure Lego , and Lego Batman, the movie, it gives ideas. Especially when a third film is in the pipes. So we are not surprised to see the arrival of Playmobil, the Film on our big screens. Set for release on August 7, 2019, Playmobil, the film is directed by Lino DiSalvo and consists of a casting as promising as Anya Taylor-Joy and Daniel Radcliffe.
Distancing comic you are told
The first trailer just dropped , and proves to us again that it will not go into the unexplored land of the film adaptation, since its tone is close a lot of its direct competitor.
This time, we will discover the adventures of a young woman and her little-brother that will be projected into the world of Playmobil. There, the young woman will have to team up with figurines of different ranges to find the toddler, of course, held in place by forces of evil without any articulation and with clamps with non-removable instead of hands.
Of course, the emphasis will be placed on the humor and the adventure, the distancing comic and maybe even the breaking of the fourth wall. If the images unveiled today are doing so much thinking about the other, there, though one hopes the film will not deal to copy its competitor and find its own identity. Because, if you want to, and to simplify, LEGO and Playmobil, that was until now a little bit like Marvel and DC to the cinema.
