THE LEGO MOVIE Producer Would Love To Get His Hands On A Few Nintendo Icons

"I think Zelda, Mario, and the whole universe of characters would be perfect for a Lego Movie type of [film]," says Lego Movie producer Roy Lee. Which Nintendo characters would you like to see featured?

While speaking at the DICE 2016 summit in Las Vegas, Roy Lee, one of the producers on The Lego Movie, stated that he believes an animated mash-up film using Nintendo's characters would be a smash hit.  "I think Zelda, Mario, and the whole universe of characters would be perfect for a Lego Movie type of [film].  I don't have the rights to it, but I would love to. That would be my Holy Grail."

Lee's comments come at the perfect time.  Recently, Nintendo has hinted that they're contemplating loosening their stance on licensing out their IP's for use in film and TV.  
Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima stated earlier this year that announcements on the company's film, TV and mobile game plans would be revealed at some point in 2016.  While Lee indicated that he doesn't have the rights, perhaps now is the time to start making calls?
