NEW YORK — A new generation of Lego sets that have drawn millions of people to the city are expected to make the trip across the country and into the United States on Legos.
The Lego Movie has been the most popular film to hit the movie theater in America, and it’s expected to reach $1 billion in worldwide box office revenue.
The Lego franchise is a worldwide phenomenon, and many people have bought Legos from the movie theaters.
Lego stores in New York City and Los Angeles are packed with fans, and the company is planning a new exhibit at one of the city’s museums, the Met Art.
In the first leg of the tour, Lego plans to sell more than 50,000 sets.
The new Legoland theme park is expected to open in New Orleans on Jan. 15, and a movie theater near the park will be the first to offer Legos at home.
Lego and other companies have been making new sets for more than a decade, but it’s been a big year for the company.
Lego sold more than $1.3 billion worth of toys in the United Kingdom last year, more than Lego’s entire revenue from 2013 to 2019.
A record number of people are buying Legos on the Internet and at Lego stores in the U.S., including a record 9.5 million purchases in the first half of this year.
In February, Lego introduced its first outdoor Lego store in New England.
