LOS ANGELES ( - Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman and Alison Brie have joined the voice cast for Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow's "Lego: The Piece of Resistance," Warner Bros. said on Friday.

Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett and Morgan Freeman were previously announced for the upcoming 3D animated feature. The first full-length Lego theatrical feature has a February 7, 2014 release date.

The story revolves around an average Lego figure (Pratt) who is mistakenly identified as having extraordinary abilities that would enable the character to save the world.

Ferrell will voice President Business, an enemy of the film's hero, with Neeson as his powerful henchman, Bad Cop. Offerman is a pirate obsessed with revenge against the president.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller ("21 Jump Street," "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs") are directing from a script they wrote.

Ferrell, Neeson and Offerman all have films in current release: Ferrell in "Wreck-it Ralph," Neeson in "Taken 2" and Offerman in "Smashed." Offerman is a regular on NBC's "Parks & Recreation."
