The new four-minute safety video coincides with the release of The LEGO Movie 2, and involves more than 20 million LEGO bricks – ten times the number in the first video.

It features eight global destinations including Cape Town - 24 000 LEGO mini-figures were used to create the crowd in the LEGO version of Cape Town Stadium which hosts a Super Hero match.

Production on the video lasted 979 hours over 4 months and involved 400 people creating 11 different versions, both in English and Turkish, to cover the safety particulars of 28 airplane models in the Turkish Airlines fleet.

The airline has also marked the relationship with LEGO with a specially wrapped narrow body Airbus A321-231 livery.
