Turkish Airlines have launched a new and updated inflight safety video. The new video uses characters from Lego Movie 2: the Second Part.
What do you think of the video?
It’s good to see airlines changing their inflight videos from time to time and choosing more fun and entertaining themes. If you’re a frequent flier you probably appreciate it more than most, but either way the change is welcome.
According to Turkish Airlines:
The new safety video also features 24,000 LEGO minifigures in the crowd for the Super Hero Cape Town match and a whopping 20,330,795 LEGO bricks used to build all the locations in the new video – ten times the amount of bricks used in the first LEGO Movie-themed safety video. 11 different versions of the new safety video exist, both in English and Turkish, to cover safety particulars of the 28 different airplane models in the Turkish Airlines fleet.
They also provided some details on the production timing and number of people involved:
Production on The LEGO Movie 2 safety video lasted for a total of 979 hours over the course of 4 months and among five different countries including Turkey, the USA, the UK, Canada and Australia. There were over 400 people involved in the creative process – 252 of whom were extras, in addition to the six-strong featured cast in the live action end sequence. The live action crew consisted of over 80 people, while the animation team included almost 70.
Considering they’ll probably only use the video for about a year before updating and replacing it that’s a serious investment!
