The ending of The LEGO Movie promised a clash of playtimes with some aliens from the planet Duplo arriving in Bricksburg and promising to destroy Emmet, Wyldstyle, LEGO Batman and the whole minifigure crew. As The LEGO Movie 2 trailers have teased, the invasion has brought about an apocalypse of sorts, and amidst all the chaos, a new villain named General Mayhem has kidnapped all of Emmet’s friends, and it’s up to the chipper Master Builder to get them back.
However, much like the original LEGO Movie, there’s more than meets the eye with this sequel. The LEGO Movie 2 expands the building brick universe in a way that might surprise you, and it requires a little bit of explanation by co-writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. But beware that it dives into spoiler territory for The LEGO Movie 2, so proceed at your own risk. Read More »
