LEGO created tremendous amount of buzz yesterday by revealing the second trailer for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (you can watch the first trailer here), and also uploaded all the new sets related to the film to The LEGO Movie 2 section of the Online LEGO Shop. There is a lot to be excited about, so let’s take a look. 🙂
Hang on to your fronds! Emmet ventures to another universe in the new trailer for The LEGO Movie 2! The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, The LEGO Movie 2 reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all-new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than they can rebuild. The battle to defeat them and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman, and their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a strange galaxy where everything is a musical. It will test their courage, creativity and master building skills, and reveal just how special they really are. Watch the trailer below.
Reprising their starring roles from the first film are Chris Pratt as Emmet, Elizabeth Banks as Lucy (a.k.a. Wyldstyle), Will Arnett as LEGO Batman, Nick Offerman as Metal Beard, Alison Brie as Unikitty and Charlie Day as Benny. They are joined by Tiffany Haddish, Stephanie Beatriz, and Arturo Castro as, respectively, new characters Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi, Sweet Mayhem and Ice Cream Cone. The LEGO Movie 2 is directed by Mike Mitchell (Shrek Ever After, Trolls, Sky High). It is produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Roy Lee, the team behind the LEGO film franchise since The LEGO Movie debuted in 2014. The screenplay is by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller and Matthew Fogel, story by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, based on LEGO construction toys. Serving as executive producers are Jill Wilfert, Matthew Ashton, Jinko Gotoh, Chris McKay, Zareh Nalbandian, and Courtenay Valenti. Patrick Marc Hanenberger (Rise of the Guardians) is the production designer, and Claire Knight is the editor. The music is composed by Mark Mothersbaugh (Thor: Ragnorak, The LEGO Movie). Trisha Gum is the animation director. The film opens nationwide in 2D and 3D beginning Friday, February 8, 2019.
Based on the trailer, it is pretty clear that The LEGO Movie 2 is not going to disappoint. The story, characters, and humor all live up to what LEGO fans have been expecting, and more!
