In Lego world, everyone lives and works together. R2D2 and Captain Jack Sparrow are both fighting the aliens. Buzz Lightyear can pilot the Star Wars X-Wing fighter. Davy Jones with his Octopus face is an accepted ally when facing Stormtroopers. It’s a perfectly fine mission for Harry Potter to be hunting for a Pirate’s Fountain of Youth. You can even trade heads if you want to. Legs, no legs; a car with missing parts — it doesn’t matter. Everyone is welcome and loved and has a purpose in Lego world.
Too bad the real world isn’t more like that.
