Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the directors behind The LEGO Movie, are back in the drivers seat for the sequel and will be rewriting the script. There’s a ton of details revealed over at this Collider article but the gist of it is that the movie will pick up a few years after the first movie’s ending, where Duplo was seen attacking Bricksburg. The movie will explore the differences between how boys and girls play. The article is definitely worth a read and echoes a lot of the same thoughts I had while reading it.
The LEGO Movie 2’s release date has been pushed back all the way to February 8th, 2019.
