Considering The Lego Brickumentary, Stephen Saito says, "In the spirit of a subject that has allowed generations to build whatever their heart desires out of thumb-sized plastic blocks, it's only fitting that when Daniel Junge and Kief Davidson set out to make a film about the venerable Lego, they wouldn't be confined to what they've done before."

"This transcends documentary in a lot of ways," says Davdison in Saitor's interview. "This is every bit as much of a family film as it is a documentary.

"In some ways, it was a difficult film," the co-director continues. "There's a lot of people we want to make happy with a film like this. We're trying to make a film that families would want to sit down and watch together – a film that would be liked by a 6 year old as well as a 40 or 50 year old. That's a tough nut to crack. At the same time, we were hoping that the Lego fan base will embrace it as well, so trying to put together a narrative that works is challenging, but I think we ultimately accomplished that."
