There are some new details of The LEGO Movie 2 coming out of Empire Online today. As we know by now, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will be writing the script for the movie which will be released sometime in 2018. One quote that stood out from the interview is:
Miller: “Well I don’t want to give you spoilers but we were really interested in what happens to that boy who’s in the meta story in the first movie when he’s four years older. When he’s an adolescent how does that change his point of view?
“And it’s nice to have the characters start in a different place from the first movie. Emmet, for example, was in an existential crisis of having seen another dimension and was questioning the whole point of his existence.”
What I got from that is The LEGO Movie 2 will take place four years after the first one with Finn most likely returning as a character. It’s not known at this time if Jaden Sand or Will Ferrell will be returning as Finn and “The Man Upstairs.” Also, since Finn is a little older now, will he be going into the “Dark Ages?” It’ll be interesting to see what Lord and Miller will come up with for the sequel.
Also today, Warner Bros. was released a new clip showing some of the behinds the scenes stuff that happened while creating The LEGO Movie. You can check that out below.
