Warner Bros. has released the second official trailer for their most-shocking franchise hit, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. Written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who also directed the first but didn’t return for the sequel, The Second Part takes place five years after the events of the first movie, reuniting the heroes of Bricksburg to face a new threat, known as the LEGO DUPLO invaders, from outer space who are wrecking hack on everything they have. To defeat them, Emmet, Lucy and their friends will reach out into the universe to unexplored and musical worlds to restore harmony to everything Lego again.
The LEGO Movie was a complete anomaly. Everyone, and I mean everyone, expected this movie to be an absolute joke from the beginning, but that couldn’t have been more wrong. While I personally enjoyed the movie, but wasn’t ecstatic about it like everyone else on this planet, I still admit how much of a shock this movie was. WB has a real winner on their hand, and they know it. The immediately took to creating spinoffs, and while each of those movies hauled in a butt load of cash, there isn’t anything like the one that started it all.
As for how the sequel looks, it looks like it could be a ridiculous amount of fun. The first movie pretty much took on the entire planet, so it only seems logical that the sequel would jump to space. With the creative ideas that this LEGo universe has, the possibilities of worlds and beings that can be brought to LEGO life in this movie is endless, and this trailer definitely shows that. Not to mention that I LOVE that they’re playing off of Chris Pratt’s other movie roles with the sequel’s new character Rex, which is also voiced by Pratt. Pratt playing off of Pratt? Count me in.
Check out the first trailer for the movie below, which means also leaving some thoughts in the comments as well! How much do you like this franchise? What have you thoughts of these trailers so far?

Starring the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Tiffany Haddish, Stephanie Beatriz, and Arturo Castro, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part will be released on February 8th, 2019.
The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part,” reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than they can rebuild.
The battle to defeat them and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman 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.
