News has emerged as to the genre of the sequel to The LEGO Movie, and it’s a little more out there than most – perhaps rather fittingly.
The Lego Movie was a crazy, erratic affair to be sure; the film certainly spread its wings in terms of artistic creativity. And it seems that its sequel won’t be any different as Chris McKay – animation co-director of The LEGO Movie and director of The LEGO Batman Movie – spoke about the sequel’s development during an interview on the Shanlian On Batman podcast.
“LEGO 2 is going to be this big musical and space action movie. They need a lot of the writing, a lot of development, not only with script development, but development with songwriters. So it was very ambitious to get that movie out.”
Well, that’s certainly a genre mash up to get behind. It certainly sounds interesting and promises plenty of the original’s originality and spectacle. More songs and now with added space adventures? Sure, why not.
The LEGO Movie Sequel is set to be released on February 8th, 2019.
