New LEGO Movie 2 poster brings the team back together
Warner Bros. Pictures has released the official The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part poster today and revealed that the first trailer for the film will be released tomorrow! Check out the full poster in the gallery and look for that trailer here!
It was announced earlier this year that Tiffany Haddish will be voicing a new lead character in the movie, joining returning voice cast members, including Chris Pratt as Master Builder Emmet Brickowoski, Elizabeth Banks as Wyldsyde, Will Arnett as Batman, Channing Tatum as Superman and Jonah Hill as Green Lantern.
Animation vet Mike Mitchell (Trolls, Shrek Forever After, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water) will direct The LEGO Movie Sequel. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote and directed The LEGO Movie, wrote the first draft of the sequel script based on a story by Lord, Miller, Jared Stern and Michelle Morgan. It was most recently re-written by BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg. In addition, Lord and Miller will serve as producers, alongside returning producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is a sequel to the original 3D computer animated film, which follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is set for release on February 8, 2019.
