Previously announced franchises include DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The Lego Movie, The Wizard of Oz, Lego Ninjago, and Back to the Future. Today's confirmed IP bring the total number of brands for Lego Dimensions to fourteen.

When Lego Dimensions launches in September for basically every platform out there, players will be able to buy Fun Packs ($15), Team Packs ($25), and Level Packs ($30) based on these franchises. The game itself is available through the $100 Starter Pack, which comes with everything you need to get started.

Warner Bros. has also published a new trailer for Lego Dimensions that demonstrates the transforming power of the physical Lego bricks. Each physical Lego Dimension toy can be built then rebuilt twice, meaning one toy actually represents three.

"For example, the Lego vehicle bricks that come in the Starter Pack can be used to build the Lego Batmobile that enables players to activate accelerator switches," Warner Bros. says. "The Batmobile can be rebuilt and transformed into the Lego Batblaster which adds Sonar Smash, a sonar gun that has the ability to break Lego sonar bricks. The vehicle can then be rebuilt again as the Lego Sonic Batray which adds a special attack in the form of a missile barrage."

"Players can fuse an upgraded vehicle to the Lego Toy Tag, enabling them to take it and any new abilities with them to a friend's game or wherever they'd like to play," the company added. "Players can do this with every vehicle and every gadget from every pack."
