The incredibly hilarious Will Arnett was in Toronto to promote the upcoming release of the The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part on February 8th. He was scheduled to appear at Yorkdale Mall @ 3:00pm, just outside the LEGO Store, where the Emmet’s Living Room pop-up photo activation was located but was forced to cancel his appearance due to a massive snow storm that has proven crippling throughout the province.
Many fans who came out were left disappointed and the event staff were on damage control, stalling the crowd for almost 2 hours before finally announcing that his appearance was cancelled due to weather. Run-of-engagement passes and LEGO polybags were distributed in hopes of making up for the boondoggle.
Luckily, I was quite relieved to have already met him earlier!
