Warner Bros. Pictures

Confirms the LEGO Pieces of its Animation Slate into 2018

(April 20, 2015 – Burbank, CA) – Building a strong slate of animated tentpoles that extends well into 2018, Warner Bros. Pictures today confirmed the release dates of three much-anticipated LEGO features.

Final Teaser Revealed for Scheduled LEGO Announcement Tomorrow

LEGO Batman

LEGO continues to tease us with another mysterious image today with this one featuring Batman. There have been images popping up on various social media accounts feature LEGO minifigures like Lord of the Rings with Gandalf and Wyldstyle from The LEGO Movie. In addition, LEGO has posted a short video featuring Joel McHale finding a mysterious glowing box at his front door with the caption “A mysterious box in front of an unassuming doorway… Interesting way to #BreakTheRules”.

Many people in the LEGO community believe that these teasers are for the new LEGO toys-to-life video game called LEGO Dimensions which will be released this year. This new game will “break” into the industry where Activision’s Skylanders, Disney’s Infinity, and Nintendo’s amiibo have dominated the marketplace. The meaning of these teasers aren’t that long as there will be a big reveal sometime tomorrow.

LEGO Batman Spinoff Movie About If Batman Can Be Happy

With all the LEGO 2015 set rumors we had today, let’s take a step back and look at something else, more specifically, about The LEGO Batman spinoff movie. Back in October of last year, we reported that the movie will be coming in 2017. There have been small details coming from Phil Lord and Chris Miller saying that “every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged.”

MTV recently caught up with the pair again at the National Board of Review Awards and Lord teased, “No spoilers. But I will say I think the movie is really exciting because it’s about ‘Can Batman be happy?'”

Lord also added while mimicking Batman, “Wah, I’m so rich and handsome, and women like me, and I’ve got a Maclaren. Something about my parents!”

Will Arnett, who will be returning to voice the Dark Knight, stated he has seen part of the film and said, “The first bit that I’ve seen was mind-boggling.”

Can Batman ever be happy especially since Wyldstyle broke up with him to be with Emmet in The LEGO Movie? What does he have now that will bring joy to his life again?


Some LEGO Batman Spin-Off Movie Tidbits

Over on Empire Online, Phil Lord and Chris Miller has given some tidbits on the LEGO Batman spin-off movie that will be released on February 10, 2017. There’s still no details on what the movie is about except that Will Arnett will be back to voice the Caped Crusader.

“Rest assured that every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged. There have been so many interpretations of Batman and there is so much to play with there. There are 40 versions of his origin story alone.”

With that note, it’ll be interesting to see how they will incorporate all the different generations of Batman into this movie. Will there be multiple Batman characters that will be alongside Arnett’s version? We shall see. Check out the full interview below which starts at about 14:30 where they also talk about the LEGO Ninjago movie as well.


Warner Bros. Announce Upcoming LEGO Movie Release Dates

In a shareholder meeting yesterday, Warner Bros. presented details of upcoming LEGO movies and gave tentative release dates for the next three films. With the huge success of The LEGO Movie earlier this year, Warner Bros. is hoping these films will have the same success as well.

As we reported a few months ago, the LEGO Ninjago movie is already scheduled for September 23, 2016. Charlie Bean will be directing the film while Dan and Kevin Hageman will be writing the script.

The recently announced LEGO Batman spinoff, voiced by Will Arnett, will take place on February 10, 2017 which takes the spot that was previously for The LEGO Movie 2. Chris McKay will be directing and Seth Grahame-Smith will be writing the story. Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller will be producing.

There were also two more LEGO films slated for Memorial Day weekend in 2018 and 2019. The LEGO Movie 2 will most likely take the May 25, 2018 release date which was also reported back in August. At the same time, there was an untitled LEGO Movie scheduled for May 24, 2019 which could be anything at this point, whether it be LEGO Ninjago or LEGO Batman sequels or even The LEGO Movie 3.

There’s no doubt that there will be official sets that will be released in conjunction with all these movies. Stay tuned as we will be reporting more details about the upcoming LEGO movies as they become available.
