We’ve tried to make each character really unique, but also really genuine. Unikitty has flaws, but she embraces them, and even makes the most of them. There’s something for everyone to relate to somewhere in the show, and we think at the end of the day people gravitate towards the positive. Unikitty and her friends love each other more than anything in the world, and we think that can be a really fun and honest experience for audiences.

Synopsis

LEGO-Unikitty-CN

Preliminary art from a sizzle reel found on March 30, 2017.

As ruler of the kingdom, Unikitty has busy days full of royal responsibilities. Unikitty is most interested in making sure everyone is happy and ridding the kingdom of negativity, but don’t misunderstand her optimism – she is one kitty not to be crossed.

While she may be full of boundless energy and creativity, Unikitty is a force to be reckoned with if anyone gets in the way of spreading her positive vibes, especially if anyone makes her little brother and best friend, Puppycorn, sad. Also living in the castle are Dr. Fox, the resident scientist, and Unikitty’s trusty bodyguard, Hawkodile.’’

Through it all, Unikitty and her friends make sure that every day is the happiest and most creative ever.
