BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WaterTower Music has announced the February 3 CD and digital release of the soundtrack to the new animated adventure “The LEGO® Batman Movie,” one week before the film opens in theatres on February 10.

The album also includes 16 of the film’s score cues by Grammy-winning composer Lorne Balfe, and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers) on drums.
“Chris is an encyclopedic reference for action hero films, but to him the important thing is the heart of the story, so I didn’t think of it as a comic, but as real, live action”
The film’s director Chris McKay describes Balfe as “one of the most talented and versatile people I’ve ever met.”
“Chris is an encyclopedic reference for action hero films, but to him the important thing is the heart of the story, so I didn’t think of it as a comic, but as real, live action,” offers Balfe. “Every scene is amazing. After the first day working on the film, I forgot it was an animation. It was as live action as anything I have worked on!”
In addition to the February 3 CD and digital release of the soundtrack, fans can also look forward to a vinyl release: The LEGO Batman Movie: Songs From The Motion Picture, which will be released May 19.

Last night, I reported on the first look at the LEGO Dimensions Hermione Fun Pack (71243) which was officially revealed at the Harry Potter Celebration at Universal Studios. Today, there is now some gameplay footage of the Fun Pack which shows off some of the spells that Hermione uses such as Riddikulus, Wingardium Leviosa, as well as a protective barrier charm. It also shows some footage of the Buckbeak build. In addition to that you also get to play in the Harry Potter Adventure World and Battle Arena.
It is stated that the LEGO Dimensions Hermione Fun Pack (71243) will be released in the spring but no mentioning of the exact release date. It is rumored that the date will be March 21 which is when the Wave 8 sets are available. The Fun Pack has 64 pieces and will most likely retail for $11.99.
There are now images of the LEGO Dimensions Harry Potter Hermione Fun Pack (71348) courtesy of Bricks to Life. Universal Studios has doing their Harry Potter Celebration and on display was the upcoming Fun Pack which includes the Hermione minifigure as well as the brick-built Buckbeack.
It is stated on the display that the Hermione Fun Pack (71348) will be available in March which is when LEGO Dimensions Wave 8 will be released. If you picked up The LEGO Batman Movie Fun Pack (71344) reservation card at Target you can see that it is a timed-exclusive until March 21 which is when Wave 8 should drop.

Last week, I reported on the upcoming McDonald’s Happy Meal toys for The LEGO Batman Movie. We now know the dates of when they will be coming out which will be from February 7 to March 6. There’s no word on whether all of the items will be released at the same time or if they will be come out in waves spread out through the month but I have a feeling it’s the latter. If you didn’t see it yet, The LEGO Batman Movie McDonald’s Happy Meal toys will be:
1. Batgirl/Batman Cup
2. Batman Viewer
3. Robin/Catwoman Cup
4. Batman/Batgirl Tin
5. Batgirl/Joker Cup
6. Batgirl Viewer

A few weeks ago, we saw a new Walmart exclusive The LEGO Batman Movie 2-in-1 Super Pack (66546) which includes The Joker Balloon Escape (70900) and The Riddler Riddle Racer (70903) as well as a poster. I can now confirm that the set is now available in stores for $44.73 which is a little cheaper than the combined prices of the two sets plus you get a poster that I believe you can’t find anywhere else. You can find the set on a new display that is set up for the movie. You can also find the Collectible Minifigures and The Joker Battle Training (30523) polybag on the display as well.
