The Lego Movie will be followed by several big screen sequels and spin-offs. The direct sequel just landed a director and will be out in 2018. A Ninjago spin-off will come out in 2016 and the Lego Batman spin-off will be out in 2017. But we now know that’s not all. We’re going to get a sort-of sequel later this year. Just not on the big screen.
LEGO has announced later this year, their LEGOLAND theme parks and Discover Centers will debut a brand new 4D short film based on The Lego Movie, featuring Emmet and Wyldstyle. Read more about the new LEGOLAND Lego Movie ride below. Read More »

The short reunites the creators and cast of the hit film — Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad voice Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf, while Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee return to direct — in a story that takes place on Anna’s birthday. And while it’s great that the family conflict we saw in Frozen is all sorted out, this time Elsa has a problem that would be a small thing for most of us, but for her could be more serious.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller wrote and directed The Lego Movie to massive hit status, and created a legitimately good movie at the same time. We knew a sequel was in the works, but the Lego Batman spin-off movie (to be directed by The Lego Movie‘s director of animation Chris McKay) recently took over the release date once meant for the sequel. McKay was also set to direct the proper Lego sequel, and him moving to the Batman movie created an empty director’s chair on the sequel.
Now The Lego Movie Sequel — that’s the legit title, based on a new press release — has a new director. Rob Schrab, a directing veteran of Community, The Mindy Project, Childrens Hospital, and writer on The Sarah Silverman Show, will direct the sequel. Read More »

Simpsons executive producer Al Jean says this isn’t true. He would know, but no matter. A Reddit user has come up with a wild theory that attempts to explain why The Simpsons have never aged in 20-plus years. And even if it’s false, it’s an interesting, well-researched attempt to put a bow on a series that’s never been about wrapping things up.
Basically the idea is that Homer has been in a coma for twenty years. Read more details on this Simpsons fan theory below. Read More »
