While not as long-awaited as The Incredibles' sequel, we've been waiting four years for a sequel to the hilarious and wonderful The Lego Movie. We have to wait a little longer, though, as the film won't be out until February 2019, but now we at least have a title and a teaser poster.
The sequel will be called The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, and will be directed by Mike Mitchell, the guy behind the surprisingly funny Trolls. What's more is that we also know we'll again be treated to the superb voices of Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Elisabeth Banks, and Channing Tatum.
Not much is known about the plot, but according to GameSpot the director of The Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKay (who was attached to this sequel before Mike Mitchell), made some statements about the story last year, saying:
"[It looks at] what's different and similar about gender, when a boy plays vs. how a girl plays. What kinds of stories are there? Chris and Phil are super f***ing smart and really thoughtful and sensitive writers. The kinds of questions and the interesting ideas that they're getting into with this movie."
"It's going to be like the first LEGO Movie was, where it's about something else that's really profound. I'm really excited about where the movie is gonna go because it's about these things that are actual notions that people have that might even be unconscious biases, where people don't even realize that that's the way they're looking at the world."
Whether or not the sequel is still about these things remains to be seen. What did you think of the original film?
