LEGOLAND California was seeing stars today. Specifically Ryan McPartlin and Yvonne Strahovski of the NBC TV show Chuck. They are two of the voice actors for the new straight to DVD movie The Adventures of Clutch Powers.

Today was the World Premiere at LEGOLAND California including a walk down the red carpet, a lunch box, and even a LEGO set for every person. Besides all of the people that worked on the movie and media like me many LEGOLAND pass holders who had entered online were chosen randomly to get a chance to see the movie.

In fact I got to sit right behind Ryan McPartlin (aka Captain Awesome on Chuck) and his family during the movie. Ryan is really nice and I enjoyed meeting him and Yvonne Strahovski. Actually I got to meet several people involved in the movie including the director Howard Baker and the music composers David and Eric Wurst.

Howard Baker was sitting a little bit behind me and he noticed how much I was laughing at certain parts of the movie (I have to admit, I have a loud laugh :D ). Without giving anything away, there is a nice nod to the LEGO enthusiasts out there which he noticed I really liked. Howard told me that for the scenes where you see LEGO city from the air he was inspired by many of the town layouts that LEGO fans create. I counted around 40 or so real LEGO buildings, cars, and other sets that were used throughout the movie including the Cafe Corner, the Grand Carousel, and the Fire Brigade. Howard said that he used whatever LEGO sets the LEGO company gave him Maya images of.

After the DVD movie we were all given the special treat of watching the new Clutch Powers 4D movie. Although they still have some kinks to work out on the effects, (we kind of got soaked by the water effect) it was an enjoyable experience. ;)

“We at LEGOLAND California are honored to have the opportunity to host the premiere of this fantastic film,” said Peter Ronchetti, General Manager of LEGOLAND California Resort. “It was especially exciting to watch the movies surrounded by the creative team that made it all happen.”

Clutch Powers is a brand new character from LEGO and is the best builder and explorer in the LEGO universe. In “LEGO: The Adventures of Clutch Powers,” viewers join Clutch on his most dangerous mission yet as he and his team travel from LEGO City to the Space Police prison planet to the medieval world of Ashlar where they must help the rightful heir to the King’s throne find the courage to regain the kingdom from the evil wizard Mallock the Malign.

In “A Clutch Powers 4-D Adventure,” Clutch and his team head out on another mission where they are forced to battle with an evil Rock Monster. The movie features amazing 3-D effects combined with wind, water and snow for an action packed and fun 4-D adventure.

LEGOLAND California also honored the Dave Thomas Foundation For Adoption today with a $10,000 donation to Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, a program responsible for dramatically increasing adoptions for the more than 150,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care systems. Louis Elguera, the Vice President of Operations for Wendy’s accepted the donation.

In the U.S. “A Clutch Powers 4-D Adventure” will be playing only at LEGOLAND California and at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Chicago. The movie is included in the cost of admission.

The voice actors also sat for signings and photos at the end of the event. I didn’t get in line since I had already gotten to meet them and I wanted all the kids that were in line have a chance.

I won’t give any of the movie details away or mention any spoilers, but I really did like the movie. I loved seeing the LEGO Minifigs come to life and finally talk. For any true LEGO fan it is definitely worth watching at least once. :)
