The Wall Street Journal has reported that even though Star Wars characters are owned by Disney and The Lego Movie is owned by Warner Bros., a few of them might be making appearances in the upcoming animated film.
The article speculates that since The Lego Movie has been in development since before Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm that it's possible the deal was put in place prior. Lucasfilm and Lego have a good working relationship, certainly more so than rivals Warner Bros. and Disney.
If true, I'm sure Disney isn't too upset about Star Wars characters being in The Lego Movie, since they need to make a franchise that's been through ups and downs relevant again on the silver screen ahead of Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015.
