The citizens of Bricksburg face a dangerous new threat when LEGO DUPLO invaders from outer space start to wreck everything in their path. The battle to defeat the enemy and restore harmony to the LEGO universe takes Emmet, Lucy, Batman and the rest of their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds that test their courage and creativity.
Before The LEGO Movie 2 hits theaters, I sat down with Chris Miller and Phil Lord to discuss the film. We also discussed making movies from ideas that absolutely should not work on paper, which part of the story was the hardest to crack, their favorite LEGO cameos (shoutout to Ruth Bader Ginsburg), and a lot more.
“Chris Pratt, a star who has enjoyed a luxury of film franchises in recent years, says that the Lego Movie series holds a special place in his heart. “I love that it's got the most laughs per minute of any movie franchise that I've done,” Pratt, who voices both nice-guy hero Emmet and his new, edgier partner Rex Dangervest in the new film, told The Hollywood Reporter at the premiere of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part at Westwood Village Theater..
"The Second Part is a sequel that’s sometimes as unwieldy as its title. Almost all of the major characters from the 2014 original have returned, and the same weirdly anarchic spirit that ran through the first film revives itself every so often in this follow-up. But where The Lego Movie was unexpected and often surprising, The Lego Movie 2 is mostly familiar, treading ground that other animated films from competing studios have already covered with more insight. If you’ll recall, the events of The Lego Movie were revealed to be the manically imaginative playtime scenario of a little boy whose dad (Will Ferrell) was fanatical about how their various Lego sets were constructed. But when the son and father came to a compromise, all seemed well for the boy’s toys, including Master Builder Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt), his girlfriend Lucy (Elizabeth Banks), and other friends like Lego Batman (Will Arnett). The first film’s final moments portended a destructive playtime apocalypse, when the boy’s sister brought her Lego Duplo toys to play.

This has naturally led to speculation among those same fans, which director James Wan has apparently had enough of. The “Saw” and “The Conjuring” filmmaker took to Twitter to dispel any rumors about the delay, explaining that the problem is simple: “It’s me.”
Check out the trailer (below) and let us know what you think. While you’re at it, be sure to peep Future’s new song with DJ Stevie J called “Stripper,” which dropped last week. Stay tuned for more.
