Chris Pratt and Tiffany Haddish Open a Cafe Made Out of LEGO on London's South Bank

So The LEGO Movie 2 is coming. I'm seeing it on Saturday. But before that, stars of the movie Chris Pratt and Tiffany Haddish will be opening up – and serving the first customers of – a pop-up cafe, The Coffee Chain as seen in the movie, actually made of LEGO, on London's South Bank.

Overpriced coffee? Awesome. Actually, not this time.

The Coffee Chain will be open from on Friday and Saturday at the Observation Point. The Café will host free (not overpriced) hot drinks and water, with photo opportunities, costume characters and spot prizes across both days. The pop-up will also be raising awareness and proceeds for UNICEF UK. Here's the bumf:

Opening at 9am, THE COFFEE CHAIN will be 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 will include a LEGO® coffee machine, donuts, your morning paper and more. The pop-up will serve free winter warming drinks and water, and spread LEGO awesomeness with costume characters and spot prizes.

THE COFFEE CHAIN will also help 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 will be encouraged to donate a small sum to support UNICEF UK'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 could also have 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.

The LEGO Movie 2 will be released in the UK and the US on February 8th.
