Chris Pratt and Tiffany Haddish serve coffee at Lego Cafe opening in support for Unicef
Stars of new big-screen animated adventure The Lego Movie 2 opened a unique Lego Cafe, as a pop-up hopes to show London that, actually, Everything Is Awesome. The Coffee Chain, inspired by the cafe featured in the Lego films, was opened by voice cast Chris Pratt and Tiffany Haddish at Observation Point on London’s South Bank ahead of the release of the highly anticipated sequel on Friday 8th February.
The Hollywood stars served Londoners the first beverages, giving those lucky enough to find their way to the front of the queue the chance to meet some of the film’s main cast. We spoke with Chris Pratty about his involvement in the Lego saga, the fans’ expectations for the next Avengers film and also the importance of Unicef.
The Coffee Chain is a visual feast of colour and imagination, brought to life with no fewer than 48,627 Lego bricks by six builders and taking 236 hours to complete. It includes a Lego coffee machine, donuts, your morning paper and more. The pop-up is serving free winter warming drinks and water, and spreading the Lego spirit with costume characters and spot prizes.
The Coffee Chain is also helping to raise awareness and proceeds for Unicef UK to help children around the world to be able to play and use their imagination to do extraordinary things. Visitors are being encouraged to donate a small sum to support Unicef’s vital work for children: providing clean water, lifesaving food, vaccines and a safe space to grow up happy and healthy.
Those not able to make it down to South Bank can also have the “awesomeness” delivered right to their offices or homes. Anyone using the hashtag #EverythingIsAwesome and sharing positive, awesome thoughts or pictures can earn “awesome deliveries” of Lego donuts and coffee which will be delivered around London today.
