Turkish Airlines has debuted its second in-flight safety video featuring LEGO characters, which will be shown on all flights starting 1 March 2019.
The second video features Emmet, Lucy and others from the cast of The LEGO Movie 2 in starring roles, with LEGO Batman himself at the helm, as the director of the 4 minute 27 second film.
Back in August 2018, Turkish Airlines debuted the first-ever LEGO passenger safety video, which was also inspired by the LEGO Movie franchise.
Alongside the animated leads, the safety video also features some of Turkish Airlines’ most recognisable destinations. The video journeys across five continents, visiting Bali, Moscow, San Francisco, Rome, Cape Town, Hong Kong and Tokyo, ending finally at Turkish Airlines’ iconic new home at Istanbul Airport.
The ensemble from The LEGO Movie franchise can also be seen off screen on a specially wrapped narrow body Airbus A321-231 livery, currently serving the European routes of the flag carrier airline.
Production on The LEGO Movie 2 safety video lasted for a total of 979 hours over the course of 4 months and among five different countries including Turkey, the US, the UK, Canada and Australia. There were over 400 people involved in the creative process – 252 of whom were extras, in addition to the six-strong featured cast in the live action end sequence. The live action crew consisted of over 80 people, while the animation team included almost 70.
The new safety video also features 24,000 LEGO minifigures in the crowd for the Super Hero Cape Town match and a whopping 20,330,795 LEGO bricks used to build all the locations in the new video – ten times the amount of bricks used in the first LEGO Movie-themed safety video. Eleven different versions of the new safety video exist, both in English and Turkish, to cover safety particulars of the 28 different aircraft models in the Turkish Airlines fleet.
