‘The LEGO Movie 2’ Trailer Shows Trying Times for Bricksburg
Is everything still awesome?
Grab your Lego sets and prepare for adventure, the new “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” trailer is finally here. Warner Bros. Pictures released the trailer earlier today, after confirming the voice-cast earlier this week. The fan-favorites from the original movie are reprising their roles for the sequel, and a few famous names will be joining the cast in the follow-up.
This time around the villain will be ‘Sweet Mayhem,’ played by Stephanie Beatriz of “Brooklyn 99” fame. You probably wouldn’t recognize Beatriz’s voice if you only know her from the ’99,’ but that’s because in the show Beatriz doesn’t use her normal voice to play the role of Rosa Diaz. Also featured in the film are the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Tiffany Haddish, and Arturo Castro. Fans of the franchise can watch the official trailer below.
The highly-anticipated sequel was directed by Mike Mitchell and produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Roy Lee. The official launch date for “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” is February 8, 2019. If you need a refresher on the roles: Chris Pratt is Emmet, Elizabeth Banks is Lucy (aka Wyldstyle), Will Arnett is LEGO Batman, Nick Offerman is Metal Beard, and Alison Brie is Unikitty.
“The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” 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.
To say that the original “Lego Movie” was a hit would be an understatement. The first film in the franchise made over $69M domestically on opening weekend back 2014, and went on to make over $257M nationwide. By the time the film wrapped in theaters, “The Lego Movie” had made almost $470M worldwide.
