Ruth Bader Ginsburg to have cameo in The Lego Movie 2
US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is going to make a cameo appearance in the new Lego movie.
Justice Ginsburg, known affectionately to her supporters as the "Notorious RBG", will appear as a Lego minifigure - complete with gavel and robes.
She was not required to do voice work for the film, but has given filmmakers permission to use her likeness.
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part - a sequel to the 2014 film The Lego Movie - is due to be released on 8 February.
Producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord say they were "trying to think of people who should be immortalised in Lego and who seem fun at weddings" when they decided to include the judge.
Her character has already made its first appearance, in a trailer posted to The Lego Movie's Instagram page yesterday.

The film will be about two siblings playing with their own Lego universe and, according to director Mike Mitchell, Justice Ginsburg will be part of the world invented by the creative younger sister.
