The Lego Movie became a blockbuster hit because of its humor, voice cast, its storyline, and of course, the fact that the whole film is made up of Lego pieces. The movie follows Emmet Brickowski, an ordinary Lego minifigure who plays a significant role in a resistance against a tyrant. However, those looking forward to its sequel may be disappointed when they realize that the sequel will be pushed back to 2019.
The sequel was announced as early as March 2014, one month after the release of the first one. The Lego Movie Sequel was slated to premiere on May 26, 2017, but the date was moved to May 18, 2018, and now February 8, 2019.
The Lego Movie Sequel is reported to be set four years after the events of the first film, and will introduce Emmet’s sister. Chris Pratt has shown interest in returning as Emmet, but there is no final word on the voice cast.
However, there will be The Lego Batman Movie and the The Lego Ninjago Movie, which will both be released in 2017.
Rotten Tomatoes scored The Lego Movie 96%, with the review: “Boasting beautiful animation, a charming voice cast, laugh-a-minute gags, and a surprisingly thoughtful story, The Lego Movie is colorful fun for all ages.”
The cast of the film was voiced by Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, and Morgan Freeman.
