Following the success of ‘The LEGO Movie,’ Warner Bros. announces release dates for two new animated features in 2017 and 2018.
Following the success of The LEGO Movie, Warner Bros. has announced release dates for two new animated features in 2017 and 2018, Variety reports.
The studio announced early last year that it had formed an animated think-tank style creative consortium aimed at delivering one high-end feature per year.
The LEGO Movie, the first film to go out as a Warner Animation Group title, has overperformed with $457 million worldwide and set a sequel for release on May 26, 2017.
The untitled animated films -- both in 3D -- have landed on February 10, 2017 and on February 9, 2018. Warner Bros. did not disclose further details. Both are the first projects to land on those dates.
Fox has already dated five animated projects for 2018 while Disney has dated three.
