Teaser trailer for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

After a foray into the worlds of superheroes and Ninjago, Warner Animation Group is taking us back to the Lego Cinematic Universe’s building blocks with a sequel to its 2014 hit The Lego Movie.

The first teaser trailer for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part dropped on Tuesday, and it includes a lot of what made the first movie so special. Right away we get a reference to the last film’s Taco Tuesday, a flashback of the subsequent Lego Duplo attack, and even a new variation of the ever-catchy theme song “Everything is Awesome.” The Lego Movie’s unique approach to quick, witty humor and visual gags is back in full force, and seeing and hearing the characters again feels like being reunited with old friends.

Chris Pratt returns to voice everyday-guy-turned-hero Emmet Brickowski, with Elizabeth Banks back as Wyldstyle/Lucy. Other returning voice talent includes Will Arnett as Batman (who also voiced the character in his solo outing The Lego Batman Movie last year), Channing Tatum as Superman, and Jonah Hill as Green Lantern. This time our heroes are left in the aftermath of a Lego Duplo attack, and must take the battle to outer space when the destructive preschool toys return.

The Lego Movie’s directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are producing this time around, with Mike Mitchell directing and Dan Lin and Roy Lee also producing. The film is currently set for a February 2019 release.

    Can’t Wait!

    Also, I love the mad max inspired world after the invents of Taco Tuesday and the how colorful the “Sistar System” looks. I know both worlds are to represent the two different imagination of the brother and the sister and it is going to be interesting to see how they tackle the gender issues of boys and girls and the differences in how they play or use their imaginations.

    • Amber Dvorak

      I agree – the brother/sister, boy/girl element would be interesting to explore, and I hope the filmmakers do so! And yes, the Mad Max-esque opening was fantastic and definitely not what I was expecting.

    I’m not too sure about this dystopian direction the story is going for. But the style of humor, visual quality and possibly musical narrative should be worth it if done right.

    This is my favorite trailer from this week. Had a BLAST watching the first one, and this looks just as fun. Can’t wait.

    • Manuel Orozco

      My favorite trailer this week will have to be Bumblebee

      • Fadi Antwan

        Spidey trailer was awesome!

    • Amber Dvorak

      All the new trailers this week were pretty awesome, but this is the only one that made me laugh out loud.

  • This definitely gets me curious what’ll go down, also will never tire yet of Lego animation in these, so stellar!! :DDD

    The alien is a Lego Friends mini figure. Kind of a ploy to advertise that side of Lego products. The “girls’ Lego” where the figures are taller and more doll-like.
