The LEGO Movie sequel that we’ve been reporting about now has a tentative release date of May 26, 2017 according to Box Office Mojo. Warner Bros. has already recruited screenwriter Jared Stern (Wreck-It Ralph, Mr. Popper’s Penguins) and Michelle Morgan to start working on a script for the follow-up to The LEGO Movie. There is no word on who will be directing the sequel but Phil Lord and Christopher Miller has stated they would like to produce the second movie.
As we also reported a few days ago, there will also be a LEGO Ninjago movie by Warner Bros. that will be released in the future and there were talks about which movie would be released in theaters first. Now that there’s a date for sequel, we can probably assume that the Ninjago movie will be coming out first with the sequel still three years out.
The LEGO Movie has been tops of the box office for the past few weeks and it looks to stay on top this weekend even though there are some movies coming out this week like Pompeii and 3 Days to Kill. Early forecasts show that The LEGO Movie will still stay on top after this weekend. It has already made over $200 million worldwide and it doesn’t look like it will slow down anytime soon.
