The LEGO Movie 2 Title

It’s been four years since The LEGO Movie hit theaters and surprised the hell out of everyone by being one of the most original and entertaining animated movies of the year. After the film’s success, a sequel was almost immediately announced, but since this is an animated movie we’re talking about, it’s taken some time to get it off the ground.

Thankfully, the movie is starting to take shape, and we have an official title. Take a look at The LEGO Movie 2 title logo below. Read More »

The LEGO Movie Sequel

The LEGO Movie was an incredible and imaginative movie, and a big part of that came from the surprising journey from the animated world of the building blocks to the real world that was the source of the LEGO city known as Bricksburg. But as we saw at the end of The LEGO Movie, that city is about to get shaken up by the arrival of characters from the planet Duplo.

As anyone who ever had toys as a kid knows, Duplo is the LEGO line of toys made explicitly for younger kids. The sets are more elementary and the pieces are too big for little ones to choke on. Those toys arrived at the end of The LEGO Movie when The Man Upstairs (Will Ferrell) allowed his son to play with his highly sophisticated inter-locking brick system, followed immediately by suggesting that his little sister could get in on the fun as well.

Thankfully, that ending wasn’t just a gag played for laughs. Instead, that will be a key part of how The LEGO Movie Sequel continues the story of Bricksburg and its residents.  Read More »

The deranged beauty of The LEGO Movie was that it could be anything it wanted to be, existing in a universe where the only borders were the limits of a child’s imagination. Rather than feel like a commercial, it felt like a tribute to the limitless possibilities of playtime – it was unafraid to jumble genres, blending action and comedy and on-point satire into a mixture that had absolutely no right to work. But it did.

So when the director of The LEGO Batman Movie says that The LEGO Movie Sequel will be a musical and a “space action movie,” all you really can do is nod and think “Sure, okay.”
