"A house divided against itself... would be better than this!"
―Abraham Lincoln in The LEGO Movie

Abraham Lincoln is one of the characters in the 2014 film, The LEGO Movie.[1] He is voiced by Will Forte.

Background

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination by John Wilkes Booth whilst he was in a theatre in April 1865. He led the United States through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crisis - the American Civil War - preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, strengthening the national government and modernizing the economy.

In the present, Lincoln appears on the obverse of the US five dollar bill, and on the same side of the US penny and he also famously has a giant marble statue in the Lincoln memorial in Washington DC in his honour.


The LEGO Movie

Abraham Lincoln is a Master Builder in The LEGO Movie. He is among the Master Builders that meet in Cloud Cuckoo Land and to express his disdain towards Emmet where he commented "A house divided against itself... would be better than this!" Then he rode his rocket chair out of the "Dog" in Cloud Cuckoo Land much to the dismay of Emmet. He later joined in the battle against Lord Business and his forces in Bricksburg.

LEGO.com description

LEGO.com-icon-yellow This is a description taken from LEGO.com. Do not modify it. (visit this item's product page)

“Four score and twenty bricks ago…”

Nicknamed “Honest Abe” because he never borrows anybody’s bricks without giving them back, Abraham Lincoln lives in a log cabin that he built all by himself, in the middle of a forest that he built all by himself, then cut down, and then rebuilt all by himself again.

Abraham Lincoln is full of good and fair advice, so his fellow Master Builders often ask him to settle arguments over who gets to build what. He would probably make a great leader, but President Business’s Octan Corporation makes all of the voting machines!

Notes

  • As the real-life Abraham Lincoln appears on the US five dollar bill, Abraham Lincoln appeared on the five-dollars-off coupons to new subscribers of the BrickMaster magazine.
  • In The LEGO Movie Video Game, Batman states that Lincoln was indeed the sixteenth President of the United States, even in the LEGO world. However, he was never able to become President of Bricksburg because President Business' company Octan makes the voting machines, which are apparently rigged. So technically, he had no chance of becoming president.
  • His chair is a parody of the real-life giant marble statue one in the Lincoln memorial in Washington DC.
  • In The LEGO Movie Video Game, he can throw a copy of the Gettysburg Address, destroying enemies and objects.
  • His combined hat-and-hair piece was designed exclusively for him. He is the only minifigure to use it.
  • Will Forte previously provided the voice of Abraham Lincoln (and his teenage clone) in the animated TV series Clone High, created by LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who also voiced characters on the show).
  • He has a cameo in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.
  • The House divided line is actually based on the real Lincoln's actual speech "A house divided against itself cannot stand".
  • He is the first ever LEGO Minifigure to be a United States President.
