The LEGO Move will be free on YouTube this Black Friday
YouTube and Warner Bros. have announced they are teaming up to bring audiences an alternative to the shopping nightmare that is Black Friday with a one-day event, Brick Friday, which will give viewers a chance to watch The LEGO Movie for free through the video website.
For 24 hours on November 23, fans can head to YouTube and when entering the search keyword “Brick Friday” and selecting the promoted video for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part at the top of the result list, viewers will get to check out the trailer for the upcoming sequel, as well as getting to watch the entire first story of Bricksburg.
The upcoming sequel 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 universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman and their friends to far away, 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.
Reprising their fan-favorite characters from the first film are Chris Pratt as Emmet, Elizabeth Banks as Lucy (aka Wyldstyle), Will Arnett as LEGO Batman, Nick Offerman as Metal Beard, and Alison Brie as Unikitty. They are joined by Tiffany Haddish, Stephanie Beatriz, and Arturo Castro as, respectively, new characters Queen Watevra WaNabi, Sweet Mayhem, and Ice Cream Cone.
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 sequel will hit theaters on February 8, 2019.
