The Lego Movie

Time to get those plastic bricks and start building... excitement! The inevitable, and already-in-the-works "The Lego Movie" sequel now has a release date, so get out your day planners.

Warner Bros. has set "The Lego Movie 2" for May 26, 2017. It's not yet know if Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be back to direct, but you can bet the studio will be lobbying hard and offering them the world to sign up again. Why? You shouldn't even have to ask; after only 2 weeks in release the film is over $200 million worldwide, and likely add much, much more before all is said and done. It's also been a smash hit with critics and audiences alike. 

What we do know is that Jared Stern (“The Internship,” “Mr. Popper’s Penguins”) and Michelle Morgan (“Girl Most Likely”) are working on the script, and already have a high bar to hit. So, until more info comes, spend 20-minutes with Phil Lord and his 2012 TEDx Talk about writing, moviemaking and his wild on-again/off-again journey with "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs."
