Yes, it looks like everything’s going to awesome, even in space. The film picks up where the first Lego Movie left off, and what our favorite characters are put to this time.
“Aliens kidnapped my friends. I’m going to get them back,” Emmet says in the trailer.
Based on the popular children’s toy, the Lego Movie franchise franchise has also spawned two spinoffs: The Lego Batman Movie (2017) and The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017).
The trailer also shows a fun bit where Green Lantern (Jonah Hill) complains about being left behind by Superman (Channing Tatum) and Wonder Woman (Cobie Smulders). “I’m literally a lantern, how did you miss me!”. He’s got a point.
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is set for release on Feb. 8, 2019.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, “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.
