Emmet, Lucy and LEGO Batman reunite in all their respective clueless, angsty & self-absorbed zaniness to save their world in long-awaited ‘LEGO Movie’ sequel.
Emmet’s coffee might provide Lucy with the only semblance of pleasure left in her world of bleak despair, but the reluctant Bricksburg hero once again provides all of us with ample amusement in the midst of our not quite as equally bleak despair in the new trailer for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, hitting theatres in 2D and 3D February 8, 2019.
Velociraptors never looked so cuddly, nor a fake five o’clock shadow so shadowy, nor a mysterious character named Rex Dangervest so Chris Pratty, as Emmet, Lucy and LEGO Batman reunite in an all new brick-filled action-packed comedy adventure. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are now facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than it can be rebuilt. The battle to defeat the invaders and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take our three heroes 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.
Plus, we have a heaping helping of new movie character posters! Because everything really, is, despite evidence to the contrary, still awesome!
