Last Friday, we closed-out the week with some casting announcements from Lionsgate's forthcoming PLAYMOBIL: The Movie. Now, we're starting off a new week with a first-look at some of the characters from the film! Directed by Lino DiSalvo and produced by ON Animation Studios, PLAYMOBIL: The Movie will feature the voice talents of Anya Taylor-Joy (The New Mutants), Gabriel Bateman (the upcoming Child's Play remake), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), comic Jim Gaffigan (Chappaquiddick) and singers Meghan Trainor and Adam Lambert.

PLAYMOBIL: The Movie - Synopsis

The film will follow the adventures of siblings Charlie (Bateman) and Marla (Taylor-Joy). When the former unexpectedly disappears into the animated universe of PLAYMOBIL, Marla must go on a quest to bring him home. During her adventures she teams up with some unlikely new friends, including smooth-talking food truck driver Del (Gaffigan), dashing and charismatic secret agent Rex Dasher (Radcliffe), a wholehearted misfit robot and an extravagant fairy-godmother (Trainor). Lambert will voice the character of villain Emperor Maximus.
